THE BEST UROLOGIST I HAVE BEEN TO! Doctor Shusterman is professional and personable. Makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. All his staff is helpful and courteous. Will only be seeing him from now on. He really knows the research behind the medicine. The wait was a little long in the past but now he has a much bigger office and there is almost no wait. He was able to do all the testing right there in the office and started treatment right away!! No one else has done this for me. Just amazing! Look no longer!

Great doctor! Highly recommend. All testing and procedures done in his office! Great staff! No complaints.

Amazing ..blood urine and ultrasound in the same visit show details Amazing ..blood urine and ultrasound in the same visit
by Wendy H. on Mar 27th, 2015

I have been his patient for many years and aways come away impressed and hoping all my doctors where like Dr Shusterman. I have had kidney stone that have required me to have treatment on a regular basis and due to my great care I no longer have kidney stone attacks as my stones are diagnosed and treated in the office before they pass! Btw- they have such great anesthesiologists if you ever need to be put to sleep for a procedure. The wait can be expended at times but still saves me lots of time as my old urologist sent me to 3 different places to get blood urine and ultrasounds and then i had to come bck for results. dr Shusterman puts all four visits in one. Amazing!

I am happy to find a excellent urologist that has a office around grand central as I work in the area. I had Ultrasounds and CT scans on site with no wait time. Really happy my coworker recommended his office. My coworker has kidney stones that she gets treated once a year. He follows her with ultrasound every 6 months to make sure the stones do not return. I am impressed.

I was treated for kidney stones and in 2 days! It took me weeks to pass a stone last time but after a friend told me that dr shusterman can treat the stones in his office I gave him a try. I am happy I did as the stone was blown up right after I had a Ct scan. My pain was gone right after the procedure. So happy i wanted to share it here.

Dr. Shusterman's bedside manner was incredibly professional and friendly. I felt immediately at ease as he discussed the prognosis in depth and gave me tips in other areas of men's health. His staff members were also very polite and helpful. The facilities were also very clean and contemporary. Overall great experience.

His staff were very friendly and quick. His PA was super I loved her ! The receptionist had a little attitude issue but I haven't really met any nice ones so it doesn't bother me much. The doctor took the time and spoke to me answered all my questions as insane as they sounded. He explained everything in detail. I will be coming back to him. He's SUPER !

Awesome Awesome!!! He is very friendly. I asked him a million questions and he did not mind a bit. He has all the testing done directly in his office. If you are looking for a doctor that gets the job done in 1 visit and not 3-4 visits he is the best. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to know whats happening on the first visit. Very modern and up to date office and a friendly staff is a big bonus. You may be there for a while but that's because testing is done there ; sonogram, certain urine testing, etc. I am very pleased to have found him here. A

Bad experience show details Bad experience
by J wisk on Jun 18th, 2014

I found personally that his method is unprofessional. I never understood the reason for immediate scheduling and for procedures that I had to have. I have gone to another doctor since then and he asked why this dr insisted this procedure was best. My current doctor said there are other methods.I still had the problem after seeing doctor shusterman and also have been harassed with bills that should have been paid by my insurance. They used a provider ID that was not his and I had a headache from the situation... I would never recommend anyone to him.

Doctor's Response

I am sorry you had this experience. We always attempt to resolve all billing issues in house and there are unfortunate times when insurance does not cover some tests. We saw our patients time and money by preforming ultrasound, blood and urine testing in our office to improve the efficiency of the care we provide. You can always reach us at 718-360-9550 for any assistance that is needed. We will always be happy to help.

The office was, and always is, very busy - which is fine. And many of the appointments involve more than one step. I wish the communication to patients was better; a simple "Hello, we know you're here; here's the approx. wait time" would be great.

Top Doc!!! Wish all doctors were as caring as Dr. Shusterman show details Top Doc!!! Wish all doctors were as caring as Dr. Shusterman
by M. Medina on Jun 11th, 2013

I am so happy my doctor referred me to Dr. Shusterman. I was so happy with my visit that I decided to post a review online and it only confirmed my option of the care and compassion he showed me. He was able to diagnose me in the office on one visit and without the need to keep coming back for more testing as he was able to do all the testing and treatment in his office. The wait time was minimal considering I had an ultrasound and other testing all in one visit. My last urologist sent me to 3 different places and then I had to follow up again for the results which took weeks to complete. Clearly the Dr. and his staff know that patients can not waste time with multiple visits in NYC. I have referred several of my friends to see him.

I was very happy with the way I was treated by Dr Shusterman. His office is modern and diagnosed me with kidney stones right in the office. He did not send me to multiple places for testing as he does everything onsite! He set me up for kidney stone laser treatment in his office. This was done with anesthesia which was great. I passed my stone and now I am stone free. I wish all my docs were as kind and professional as Dr. Shusterman. There is a reason why he wins all these top urology awards! I would recommend him to anyone.

His whole office is paperless and when I came to see the doctor all my testing and results where right on his computer. He knew all my results right away. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. He treated me like a relative even though I just met him. While many other doctor I consulted where recommending surgery, he touted a minimally invasive approach. He saved me from an unnecessary operation. I recommend him to anyone.

His office is extremely disorderely and there is little or no privacy at all. Even the medical assistance ask you about what you came to see the doctor about. They all need to be schooled on HIPPA policy!

Mark as Helpful  | 1 person found this helpful Report Abuse
Doctor's Response

We at Advanced Urology are sorry you had this experience. HIPPA policy is strongly enforced in the office. The office is large and has many patient rooms which should offer the maximal level of privacy to our patients and this allows for private discussion and overall good privacy. Asking what the reason for the visit is standard for all medical practices and in no way is a HIPPA violation.
