Specialties

Dr. Joshua P Stein has the following 2 specialties

  • Diagnostic Radiology

    Radiologists help doctors get a closer look at what’s happening inside your body. If your primary care doctor wants to investigate your symptoms further, they may refer you to a radiologist to get an ultrasound or x-ray. Some radiologists specialize in mammography and breast imaging, which is who you see when you need a mammogram. A Radiologist can also determine if bones are broken or fractured after any kind of accident.
    Radiologists are trained to perform MRIs and CT scans, both of which are used to determine the presence of diseases or disorders and help your doctor properly diagnose you. They can detect anything from tumors, bleeding and infections to bone and muscle disorders.

  • Radiology

    A radiologist is a physician who specializes in the use of medical imaging to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries in patients.
    The different types of medical imaging are X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.
    Radiologists are experts in these different types of tests and can advise a primary care doctor on which test is most appropriate in a specific case. These doctors also assist primary care doctors in analyzing the images produced by these tests in order to determine next steps necessary for treatment.

One Star

Dr. Stein is rude and so arrogant in his tone. He is an inexperienced doctor who expressed his frustration after he could not get what he needed during my ultrasound. I would not recommend this doctor. Full of himself and does not care about his patient's perspective. I have a superb breast surgeon and oncologist. This doctor was unfortunately part of a follow-up ultrasound visit and I didn't chose this subpar doctor nor will I have Dr. Stein in my future.

I wish I knew who it was and could look him up: horrible experience

I very seldom rate doctors, but I am so outraged today that here I am giving advice to a next poor patient who doesn't know what to expect. I went to the Radiology department today for an ultrasound for my right breast. My physician who is a breast cancer survivor said: don't get a mammogram, you are still too young, it will not show much. This person here sent in a nurse who started brainwashing me into getting a mammogram and finally said that no ultrasound will be done if I don't have a mammogram done first. I tried to object, and they sounded so freaking determined. Well, I thought I am already here, might as well. The mammogram results of course showed nothing and the so to speak Doctor mentioned that it's because of my age and tight tissue. Wasn't it what I was saying to begin with? The ultrasound showed nothing either! I clearly feel mass! I am exhausted after today's appointment and feel helpless that I can't do much about unprofessional docs like Dr Stein. Bummer that you don't know what doctor will be looking at your results before you schedule an appointment. hope it helps.
