Have you seen Dr. Steven J Arsht?
Self-verified patient of Dr. Steven J Arsht - Posted on September 21st, 2017
I actually read the review below, dated 3/2/11, and it sounds just like my visit in the recent month, except for one difference: The office made up a fake medical code and charging me for $3,000. I already mailed my complaint to his billing office, but it didn't stop the bill. I'm writing to the hospital's CFO and if it doesn't help, I'll report this medical billing fraud to the Insurance Fraud Bureaus of NYS as well as The Federation of State Medical Boards. STAY AWAY FROM Dr. Steven Arsht AND LET'S SPREAD THE WORD.

What a delightful experience. My condition was far from life threatening yet Dr. Arsht was very comforting. He did not put me through any unnecessary testing.

I was involved in a bike accident this spring, and visited Dr. Arsht's office with a broken collarbone. If it was not enough that the fact his financial well-being takes precedence over the well-being of his patients was made VERY apparent, he also proceeded, to my shock, to make judgmental & superficial comments based on appearance. My accident involved a NYPD police van, which developed into a no-fault case. His office made it very clear that they are not interested in taking on no-fault cases. Thanks to my lawyer, I was redirected to much better care with Dr. Lon Weiner of Lenox Hill Hospital. I am very well into recovery, and feel much gratitude towards his attention & care. And everyone marvels at the splendid job he has done with the surgery. I'll proudly wear my scar for the rest of my life. But I assure you, it's a very pretty one :)
Uncaring Dr. and staff
Self-verified patient of Dr. Steven J Arsht - Posted on April 11th, 2012
Everything about my experience with both this Dr. and his office was frustrating and shocking. When I arrived no one took my vital signs, a typical protocol in caring thoughtful Dr.s offices. Dr. Arsht spent a maximum of five minutes with me, was dismissive of my knee pain and said "two weeks of PT then schedule surgery" A pretty quick judgement, given they had not yet taken an MRI. The office never bothered to call me back with the results of the MRI and when I tried to call them it took nine phone calls to hear what turned out to be a misdiagnosis by the physician's assistant. The Dr. himself never bothered to speak with me. After I cancelled my follow-up appointment I received no less than seven calls reminding me of the cancelled appt. The office sent an incomplete set of records to my new Dr's office and it has taken me dozens of phone calls to try and rectify this. This was a terrible experience all around and caused me weeks of delay in getting relief from a knee injury. I would never recommend this office or the Dr. to anyone. There is something seriously wrong with the way this practice is being run.
Excellent service - Knee

Doctor Arsht has performed three knee operations on me within a 15 month time period. Dr. Arsht kept in contact with me and made sure the rehabilitation was a successful one. I am now back playing competitive ice hockey and feel no knee pain. I would recommend Dr. Arsht to anyone looking for a caring, qualified surgeon willing to go above and beyond.

Dr. Arsht is my hero. He is a great listener and did not jump to any conclusions until he first reviewed my MRI. Overall, I find him to be conservative, yet practical in his approach. We spoke about my overall activity level with regard to my injury. My knee is better than ever and has been since day one of my surgery. The difference is amazing. I still need to do some more rehabilitating, but feel like a new woman!

I know my injury very well. I had surgery almost 8 years ago and know the limits of my knee. When I was re-injured last year, I went to Dr. Arsht. He is very personable and obviously has the knowledge necessary for his job. He made me think that he would be a great help. But I was wrong. His team overcharged for a simple office visit and didn't seem to care about me afterward. I wonder if he ever even listened. When I complained about the cost, his assistant said, "Sorry ma'am, it's just the code we use." I explained that this was fraudulent (charging for a procedure that never happened) and asked to speak to the doctor (which I never got to do). And when I asked the assistant, "Do you think 5 minutes of Dr. Arsht's time is worth $1,000?" well, she was stumped. I do NOT recommend Dr. Arsht.Oh yeah, and when I FINALLY got some physical therapy out of them (not like I wanted a prescription for drugs!), they told me to follow up with one of Dr. Arsht's colleagues. A.K.A. "Never come back." I'm fine with that.
Arsht the Hack
Self-verified patient of Dr. Steven J Arsht - Posted on October 31st, 2010
Do not go to Dr. Arsht. Unless you want incomplete, ineffectual care from a Dr who barely notices you are in the room. Sure - if you want to pad the guys wallet then go ahead. Its your dime.I went to this fool for my shoulder and neck. He spent 5 minutes with me and said he was going to set up an MRI. He said it would take 2 to 3 days. A week passed. Nothing. 2 weeks passed. Finally one of his staff said my insurance company turned it down because his office did not provide enough information. Good job!I asked to speak to the Dr. That never happened. He had his staff call me and say I should probably see a neck specialist.A complete utter waste of my time. 2 weeks in pain with no MRI set up. So wheres my refund then Arsht? Not only that - but Ive now gotten a bill from Beth Israel.Actually though I consider myself lucky - at lease I never put myself through some surgical procedure with this hack. That would really suck.
Dr. Arsht - Caring and Consistent!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Steven J Arsht - Posted on October 5th, 2010
I have seen Dr. Arsht for 3 injuries, and he is consistently engaged and concerned during my office visits. Instead of just dealing with the injury at hand, he also holistically analyzes the current state of your health and will recommend a course of action. I never feel as though Dr. Arsht gives me unnecessary treatment or follow up appointments either. He has an amazing bedside manner, a lot of patience for my questions, and illustrates a genuine concern for the people in his office.
