Ratings for Dr. Kevin F. Sunshein
I thought I was going to have to have surgery for plantar fasciitis as another physician told me I would. When I saw Dr. Sunshein and he put me in custom orthotics, I was so pleased. My pain has decreased significantly and I am able to return to activities I used to enjoy.
Terrible service! Cancel appointments without any concern for patients. They said they called my 'daughter' and she cancelled the appointment. I do NOT ve a daughter. How could they talk to her? No apologies, send me to another doctor, arrogant, petty service
My family members go to Dr. Sunshein for 10 years now.My kids play sports and go to Dr. Sunshein for everything-from broken foot to orthopedic inserts in the shoes. We are always greeted with smiles from the reception area to the exam room,Dr.S is understanding, kind and has great bedside manners.I shared our stories with others on the sport teams and learned that 3 other kids on the team went to him as well.Both doctors are helpful and you are treated with the best of care. They handled a bad break with such care and calmed us parents and kids too;now my kids think breaking foot is not a big deal since it comes with a hug from Dr. Engel,sparkly boot, a medical lesson from Dr. S.and the treat from Ms. Gwen. Hope that there no more broken bones for us but if there are some... we know where to go.
NONE of the options he recommended were options that my insurance would cover. His first recommendation was for a $500 laser procedure that would be just as effective as a pill but he said he does't prescribe the pills anymore because they have "possible" side effects like kidney damage. ANY medication will give you kidney damage if you take too many! So NO I'M NOT COMING OUT OF POCKET $500 FOR A PROCEDURE MY INSURANCE DOESN'T COVER WHEN YOU COULD EASILY PRESCRIBE ME SOMETHING JUST AS EFFECTIVE THAT MY INSURANCE WILL COVER. In fact he TOLD me that the prescription would most likely NOT be covered by my insurance and would cost about $200 whereas HIS other products would only be $36/each. I got that prescription. It didn't cost me a DIME. So by all means sell your stuff. I'm glad for you that it sells. But don't you EVER think of me as so stupid that I'd buy something simply because I'm scared my insurance MIGHT not pay for an alternative that doesn't make you any more money out of me.
I was with my wife in September 2012 when she saw DR. Sunshein and she thought she needed surgery for a neuroma. He did not order an MRI but wanted my wife to have a routine physical before he would do the surgery. This made no sense so we did not proceed with him. She just saw another Podiatist who insisted on an MRI and the MRI revealed a neuroma AND 2 other foot abnormalities. Bad office staff as well, seems like a very disfunctional office.
Finding a podiatrist when we first moved here was not an easy job. I saw several podiatrists and was very unhappy before finding Dr. Sunshein. I have been a patient of Dr. Sunshein's for over 15 years. He has always been very knowledgeable, very professional, and an extremely caring doctor.
