I found Dr Stein via a yoga instructor who had experienced similar injuries and was a patient of his. After being disappointed with several other drs, I went to Dr Stein. I have been a patient of his now for more than a year, and he continues to be responsive, informative and thorough.
His staff is friendly, and I rarely wait more than 5-7 minutes - which is a rarity in NY. I also find Dr Stein to be quite personable and funny. He is straight up and isnt going to sugar coat any diagnosis, but who would want a dr to do that anyways?
I travel often and sometimes am only in NY for a few days - but still, Dr Stein & his team manage to squeeze me in for appts when I need one.
I highly recommend Dr Stein as your new orthopedic/sports med dr,

Dr.Stein treated me for my knee pain (patella femoral syndrome, or PFS) this past summer. Dr.Stein is an extremely caring, and thorough medical professional. I was always seen on time, and felt that adequate time was allowed to explain my situation, and receive helpful medical advice. While in his office, Dr.Stein performed a complete clinical examination of my knee, including a sonogram. He explained why I was experiencing pain, and what could be done to mitigate the situation. When I first saw Dr.Stein, my knee pain had been for present on and off for 6 months. Despite my frustration with my persistent knee pain, Dr.Stein encouraged me to try non-invasive strategies prior to considering a gel shot. In the end, Dr.Stein was right on the mark. I followed through with the physical therapy treatments, made modifications to my exercise program, and used the knee brace to allow me to strengthen my muscles. After 4 months under Dr.Stein's care, I am thrilled to report that I am pain free. I love to exercise, and I am now able to resume a very active lifestyle. I thank Dr.Stein for helping me get rid of my pesky knee pain!!

I saw Dr. Stein for a shoulder consultation that turned into rotator cuff and lambrum surgery. I had a few weeks to research the surgery and recovery before going under the knife and was moire than a little concerned about the lengthy recovery. The surgery itself was longer than expected with more repairs, only adding to my rehab concerns. I followed all of the instructions following surgery and I am very pleased to say that 5 weeks after I have not experienced a quarter of the pain that others had been promising. All the while Dr. Stein has been very accommodating of my questions and has treated me very well at every office visit. The administrative staff also went above and beyond helping me deal with a pre-op testing issue with my primary physician.
My primary concern was getting the best doctor to perform the surgery I needed, regardless of bed-side manner and administrtaive issues. I found a doctor and staff that has managed to provide excellent care in all areas.
Many thanks to dr. Stein and all of your staff

I recommend Dr Stein most highly.
I have run for years and years on my knees and after having had meniscus surgery done on both knees - one by Dr Stein and one by another Dr - I can tell you that the care I received from him and his office staff was remarkable.
Quite frankly I believe the terrific job he did on the surgery and the recovery program made a difference of more than 3 months being lopped off the time of recouperation between the first knee and the one Dr Stein did.
He is professional to a Tee as is his whole office staff. I never waited any length of time for appointments and they always knew who I was and why I was there.
Dr Stein spoke to me directly about the healing process and I felt like it led to a process where I was in control and not a number.
My experience was just great and I would go back immediately should I need more care in the future.

I am a current patient of Dr. Stein's and consider myself to be very lucky! Approximately a month ago I had a compound arm fracture and dislocated my elbow. It required emergency surgery which Dr. Stein and his team at NYU performed on a Sunday. They were all incredible, and my arm is healing perfectly.
Let me add that I am a pharmaceutical sales rep and have been for 8 years. Needless to say, I have met and worked with just about every MD in the area, specifically orthopedic surgeons. I do not exaggerate when I say that Dr. Stein is the best. Everyone who has seen my arm is shocked that the scar is healing so well and that I can use my arm as much as I can. AND, Dr. Stein is a pleasure to be around and extremely caring for his patients. Trust me, that is rare to find nowadays.
I'd like to end with this, his staff is also the best staff I have had the pleasure to be around. When I needed a disability form sent to my company, his staff had it faxed in 15 minutes....that NEVER happens! They are welcoming, timely with all appointments and necessary paperwork, and just lovely to be around. I ENJOY going to this office!
So, I'm not recommending that anyone go break their arm to see Dr. Stein and his office staff, BUT if you find yourself in need of an orthopedic surgeon call Dr. Stein's office ASAP. You will not find anyone better!!!
