Specialties

Dr. Ruvan R Shein has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Just Horrible

Where do I start?The worst doctor I have ever gone to! Went to see him for a specific complaint and went through hundreds of dollars worth of testing only to have him tell me everything looked good but couldnt help me figure out why I feel the way I do. So why is the lining of my stomach swollen? He couldnt help me figure it out, nor did he want to discuss and explain my results, but rushed to get off the phone several times. Impatient, unprofessional, and unknowledgeable if you ask me! Went to another Gastroenterologist for a second opinion after Dr. Shein was so unhelpful, only to find out that all the information he told me regarding my tests were false and didnt match up to my paperwork! How does a doctor neglect to tell a patient CORRECT blood work results? According to Dr. Shein my blood work came back fine. But once I got my second option and showed the doctor the same blood work Dr. Shein sent me, I have high sugar levels and am considered Prediabetic.....I think that's important information he should have told me!! I cant believe I trusted him to treat me under anesthesia TWICE! Wish I had done my research before! If you're considering him to treat you, thing again!

CARING AND ON POINT

I HAVE BEEN GOING TO DR. SHEIN FOR OVER 10YEARS. AT FIRST I WAS GOING TO ANOTHER DOCTOR IN THAT OFFICE BUT I FELT HE WAS NOT DOING ENOUGH FOR ME. ONE DAY MY CO-WORKER(WHO IS A PATIENT OF DR. SHEIN'S TOO) TOLD ME HOW DR. SHEIN IS EXCELLENT WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR PHYSICAL. GUESS WHAT SHE WAS RIGHT. DR. SHEIN MAKES YOU TOUCH YOUR TOES, SPREAD YOUR FINGERS APART, CHECK YOUR EYES, YOUR STOMACH I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT DR. SHEIN. BUT THE ONE THING THAT REALLY STUCK OUT TO ME ABOUT DR. SHEIN IS THAT HE CALLED ME ON A SATURDAY OR A SUNDAY TO TELL ME ABOUT MY RESULTS.(WHAT DOCTOR DOES THAT)AFTER THAT I TOLD MYSELF DR. SHEIN IS A CARING DOCTOR AND HE REALLY IS A DOCTOR WHO CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS AND LOVES WHAT HE DOES. DR. SHEIN IF YOU LEAVE NYC I WILL FOLLOW YOU. :) I RECOMMEND DR. SHEIN TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR A GOOD AND I MEAN GOOD DOCTOR. P.S HE HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR AND HE DOES NOT SUGAR COAT ANYTHING HE SHOOTS RIGHT FROM THE HIP AND TELL YOU LIKE IT IS WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT AND THAT IS ANOTHER GOOD THING ABOUT HIM THAT I LIKE.
