It is our belief that insurance rules should not limit your treatment. New York Urology Specialists is an in-network provider with Medicare. New York Urology Specialists and Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger are not contracted with other insurance networks at this time. We will gladly see you as an out-of-network provider. Your insurance company may cover some or all costs of the care that you choose to receive from us as an out-of-network benefit. Our fee schedule is simple and straightforward. Sample visit costs are listed below. For more detailed pricing please contact us.
2020 Fee Schedule – Our Typical Fees Start as Follow:
|Regular Self-Pay Fee start at:||Prepayment discount Fees start at:|
* Costs include physician evaluation for a simple problem (99203 visit level); higher fees apply for more complicated visits. Additional fees may apply for other tests, procedures and surgeries.* add $10 credit/debit card processing fee to cover the charges banks charge us if paying with credit/debit or prepaid card for new visits and $5 for follow up visits. * These discounted rates are valid only for self-pay patients who are unable to afford standard rates or health insurance premiums. Higher regular rates apply to patients who do not prepay or those who are covered by insurance.
For patients without insurance who are paying out-of-pocket for our services at the time of service, prompt payment discounts are available. We also offer unique, all-inclusive “prepaid” office urological care plans for patients. If you have Medicare, you will typically be responsible for a 20% copay often covered by secondary insurance if you have it.
We understand that life can be unpredictable. If you are unable to come to your appointment please notify us at least 72 hours in advance. Cancellation fees apply for office visits, procedures, and surgeries.
Our payment policies are simple and straightforward. We are always happy to provide you with the most outstanding urology care in NYC whether you have a commercial insurance policy, a high-deductible plan, or no insurance at all. We would be happy to see you if we are not in-network with your insurance company, however, be aware that your out-of-pocket costs may be higher depending on your plan.
Our prices are reasonable and are typically much lower than what you would pay by visiting a similarly experienced and qualified urologist working for a hospital. If necessary, we will work with you on financing options to help you. Our goal is singular: to deliver the highest quality urological care in New York City.
Physician fees are only a small part of your medical expenditures. To help you with medical expenses, whenever possible, we will prescribe generic medications that have the same therapeutic ingredients, cost less, and work as well as the expensive brand medications. Because we are an independent practice and offer your choices, your total cost of care may be lower even when you go out-of-network compared to getting studies done at a hospital affiliated with the hospital-employed physicians. For example, when you need a CT scan or MRI you can go to an outpatient center where the cost of a CT scan can be $300-$400 compared to $1,000-$3,000 at a hospital. Please contact your insurance plan for information about your costs.
We accept cash payments, all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, PayPal, and checks. A number of financing options are available.
If you require a procedure or surgery, you should discuss your condition with your insurance company to determine what the insurance company will cover under your policy. All or part of your physician fee for the surgery may be covered by your insurance company if you have out-of-network benefits in your policy. You may be responsible for the deductible, copay, and/or other costs.
We will assist you with any paperwork required by your insurance carrier to file a claim for reimbursement of your expenses. Please be aware that your insurance may require precertification for certain surgeries and procedures. Please note that hospital or surgical center fees are separate from physician fees. Your insurance may be accepted by the hospital or surgery center where the procedure will be scheduled.
You may use a health savings account (HSA) to pay for the services we offer.

by Charles Thompson on Jul 06, 2019
I am a 54 year-old male who is extremely happy with my care at New York Urology Specialists. I came to see Dr. Alex out of near desperation after consulting with three other urologists. Literally over one night, I began experiencing severe penile pain and burning. None of the other urologists were able to help diagnose what my problem was and seemingly didn't take my problem very seriously. In fact, one of them specifically told me at it had nothing to do with my prostate. After 6 weeks of suffering, I saw Dr. Alex. He examined me and gave me some tests and lab work. He very quickly ascertained that my problem was due to an enlarged prostate. He proscribed medicine to deal with my pain in the short-term and keep my prostate size in check over the long-term. My problem quickly disappeared. Today, 5 years later, I feel great. Dr, Alex listens to you as a patient, takes your opinion and health concerns seriously and knows his field inside-and-out so that you can get proper treatment for your problem. I can't thank him enough for diagnosing and solving my malady - you sometimes can't appreciate a problem until you have it. Getting rid of it and getting back to normal is so important - I am so glad that I saw Dr. Alex for my problem.

GREAT ENVIRONMENT AND STAFF
by Tara on Mar 17, 2019
Overall, I am happy with the services provided by Dr. Alex and his office staff. They are second to none when regarding follow-ups and getting back to you promptly, which is definitely not always the case with specialists. Furthermore, living abroad, he has offered to continue to treat me via skype and through email, which has been hugely helpful considering the medical care where I live is not as comprehensive as in the United States.

I have been a patient of another Urologist for years, with no positive results. Then I learned about Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger through a TV newscast.

I highly recommend Dr. Alex and his staff to anyone who wants the most caring, capable and result oriented urological medical care. Thumbs up to Dr. Alex and staff!!!!!!!!!

Dr Alex and his staff are through professionals in every sense of the word. From initial diagnosis to a period of evaluating and ruling out options, we decided upon a surgical solution, which appears for the most part to have corrected the issue. Thanks to Ana, and the staff, especially Dr. Alex for treating me so well. Best regards, Lee

Hello, I wanted to simply thank you for your help. My condition has improved. I saw my regular Urologist yesterday and he agreed with everything you said. I am most appreciative of the speed and efficiency with which I was able to see you. I will be using the cream for another 2-3 weeks and hopefully that will be the end of my trouble. However, if not you can be assured that I will visit your practice again. Thank you for seeing me yesterday. In many ways my mind was put at ease. The operation is very efficient and professional.

"Cannot express how thankful I am I found Dr. Shtetnshlyuger. After undergoing surgery to correct a penile torsion I couldn't be happier with the results. A great doctor who is clearly good at what he does.

Thank you New York Urology Specialists for helping with my problem. The doctor and the staff are great!
by Scott Cameron on Aug 18, 2017
Received circumcision from Dr. Shteynshlyuger. Dr. Shteynshlyuger is a very good specialist who cares for his patients. He was always concerned with my physical and mental comfort prior, during and post-operation. Dr. Alex is very thorough in his work to assess any problems and provide the necessary solution. Being that he has recently moved to a new location, this may afford for speedier appointments and easier flow of patients in and out. In addition, more personal space for waiting patients. If there was any con, it would be, the lack of space at his prior office and being able to see his patients at the appointed time, but a necessary sacrifice for good, careful work. I would recommend him as a very good doctor.
by Andrew on Jun 06, 2017
I can't imagine a vasectomy procedure going more smoothly. I was playing tennis 5 days later. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and made me feel very comfortable with his great bedside manner. If you're coming to see him or considering seeing him, be rest assured that you're in good hands! Go for no scalpel vasectomy.

" He found my source of testicular pain that was missed by a Urologist from my insurance provider. Although I paid to go out of network- any price is less than testicular pain. He is generous with his time and will not short change anyone for care." via Vitals.com Posted on June 4th, 2017
by Richard on Nov 15, 2014
I went to see Dr. Shteynshlyuger for a second opinion about a urinary problem after having a continuing issue for many months that wasn\'t getting better. He seemed very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him. Cons: If you\'re not the first patient the wait can be LONG.
