Dr. Bruce Stein, MD
After completing a residency in internal medicine in Columbus, Ohio, Dr. Stein completed a fellowship in rheumatology at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
Dr. Stein worked in a large group practicing rheumatology before deciding to open Floral Park Arthritis, P.C., where he has been practicing for over 10 years.
Dr. Stein decided to open his own practice so he could spend ample time with patients and provide them with quality care. He takes special interest in the diagnosis and management of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Gout, Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, Myositis and Osteoporosis. In addition, he has a strong interest in treating Tendonitis, Bursitis and Sports Injuries.
We Are Always
Glad to Help
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete paperwork that will assist us in your care. You can help us by also bringing the following to your first visit:
During your first visit to our office, a nurse will take your vital signs, get your medical history and talk with you about your symptoms. The rheumatologist will then discuss in detail your symptoms and perform a comprehensive examination. The doctor will also assess the range of motion of your joints, so wearing loose clothing will help make the evaluation easier.
Now is the time to ask questions or discuss any concerns with your doctor. We promise to speak candidly with you about your symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options.
Your rheumatologist may order lab tests and X-rays, which can be done in our office. This will help the doctor confirm a diagnosis and formulate a treatment plan.
