Specialties

Dr. Peter H Stein has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Fibromyalgia

I have been to Dr. Stein three times. He is horrible. He may be smart, but he has no bedside manner, does not seem to "care" at all about his patients, and doesn't even look you in the eye. I was made to fee that I just have to live with my disease and just deal with it. Would not recommend him to anyone, unless you want to leave the office feeling miserable and depressed. I have been to many doctors in my 48 years and have never felt the need to write a review. But if this will help someone else not receive the same cocky, uncaring attitude, then it's worth it. Find another doctor for sure!

Reasonable doctor

Listened well, tried to find solution for my leg pains. Did not prescribe medication without evaluation. Did eventually find something that worked.

Great Rheumatologist in Marin -- Be Leery of Some of the Negative Posts on this Site

***I'm reposting this to correct my overall rating to five stars, as originally intended (this site won't allow me to amend current one).*** Dr. Stein is a thorough, intelligent doctor who listens and makes every effort to help improve my health issues relating to Sarcoidosis (and a few other conditions). I've been seeing him for six months since moving from Chicago back to California. Aside from my specialist in Chicago, he is the best doctor I've had when it comes to spending quality time with me and finding solutions to improve my condition. When I walk out of his office, I have a detailed write-up from him of the game plan to follow until my next visit -- this is great because I'm used to taking copious notes to ensure I'm maintaining/adjusting my regimen. I rarely write reviews but am compelled in this case because of the suspiciously negative posts on this and other sites where you can review physicians. Most of the critical reviews appear to be done by the same person who complains that Stein doesn't write scripts for pain medication. In the last four years, I've been through two surgeries, seen several specialists (including Stein) and live with chronic pain...I have never once had a doctor refuse to help me mitigate discomfort with prescriptions when it's reasonable and medically necessary. You can't blame him, or any doctor, for doing his ethical and legal responsibility to detour the drug-seeking behavior that is clearly illustrated in some of these posts. If you live in Marin and need a good rheumatologist who is local, I encourage you to see Dr. Stein. Yes, you may have to wait 20 minutes, but it's worth it because he never rushes his appointment with you (meaning if he's late, it's because he needed to additional time with the patient ahead of you) .
