I would rather have a very knowledgeable doctor than a bubbly, cheerleader-like, friendly doctor. I went to Dr. David Arnstein about 5 years ago for a large cyst in my sinuses. He was recommended by my family doctor. Unfortunately he was not covered under my insurance. I went to him anyway because I found information about him on the internet. He is a research doctor and therefore I expected him to be very knowledgeable and current. I found that he listened to me and was serious. He also reduced his bills for the office visits because my insurance would not pay any of the amount. He did an excellent job explaining the problem and the possible long-term risks of not having surgery. At the time, he used Good Samaritan hospital for surgeries and Good Sam was covered under my policy. Dr. Arnstein offered to reduce his own surgery fee (I did not even have to ask) so that it would be easier for me to afford. However, before going ahead with the surgery, I called my insurance company and they told me that they they would deny the hospital charges if I used an out-of-network doctor and that I would have to pay over $20,000 out-of-pocket. I was unable to find anything significant about research or reputation on any of the in-plan ENTs. Therefore, I brought the list of in-plan ENTs south of San Francisco to Dr, Arnstein and asked if he was familiar with any of them. Dr. Arnstein took his time, without charging me, to review the list and recommended 3 of the ENTs. I ended up selecting the one that was associated with the El Camino Hospital group, which was a reasonable distance from where I lived. I had a successful surgery and thank Dr. Arnstein for his diagnosis, recommendations and generous reduction of his fees. Before I had the surgery to remove the cyst, I had many horrible, debilitating migraine headaches, which sometimes lasted for several days. After the surgery, I have not had one migraine to date. Dr. Arnstein did not pushed me to have surgery. Instead, he laid out the options and risks. I am glad I decided to have the surgery. I found Dr. Arnstein to be quite serious, but not at all uncaring. If you prefer a doctor with a cheerleader personality, then maybe Dr. Arnstein may not be your first choice.

Dr. Arnstein did a procedure on our child. He may or may not be a competent doctor but has no bedside manner whatsoever. We found him extremely arrogant, uncaring, cold, and quick to order procedures. Dr. Arnstein will make sure you feel worse than you already do after speaking with him. I have never seen him smile. He gives a strong impression you are a great inconvenience to him.

Parents: If he is your doctor and he pushing you to do ear tubes or another procedure, please get a second opinion. Dr. Arnstein is quick to put your child under the knife without considering other possibilities.

In my humble opinion, Dr Arnstein should not interact with the public but instead consider doing research work alone.
