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.
2021 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 cannot 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 cannot 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. Several 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 Josh via Google.com on Dec 16, 2020
Dr. Alex absolutely changed my life and restored my faith in doctors. When my condition first started I saw four different urologists over a period of about 6 months. All four either laughed me out of their office saying there’s nothing they could do to help, that my pain was normal, or prescribed me something that did not help or made everything worse. I prepared to live my life (22 years old now) with chronic pain that made participating in every day activities extremely difficult. Finally after getting the courage to start looking for new doctors again I found Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger and decided to give his office a call. I proceeded to see him shortly after my call, and now a few visits and months later I am finally able to enjoy life again. Dr. Alex took the time to do the tests that other doctors did not even mention. He took different approaches, gave well explained answers to all of my questions, and made me feel like there are some doctors who really do care. On top of all of that he has some of the most helpful and kind staff I have come across. I cannot stress enough how thankful I am for Dr. Alex!
by Elson via Google.com on Nov 25, 2020
This was a very fast and easy process. No pain at all and the job was very well done. He stays on top of your progress and helps to heal faster. I will definitely recommend Dr Alex at all times!!!

I saw the reviews about this place and was very hesitant to go but something was telling me to go with them and I don't regret it at all, the doctor did a great job and helped me understand the process plus the staff was amazing I would highly recommend it to anyone! quick story after the procedure I was in soo much pain and called the office on a SUNDAY, the doctor gave me a call back within 15 minutes and prescribed a stronger medication, to me that meant a lot for the doctor to take time from his day on a Sunday to help me.

Went in for a procedure with Dr. Alex and he was very calm and thorough about the the operation and the recovery. From the front desk to his assistants, everyone was very courteous, professional and polite. I highly recommend NY Urologist Specialist. They are outstanding!!!
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.
by DAM BEN STANTON on Sep 24, 2018
From the very appointment to the last follow-up visit, I felt I was at the right place and with the right people around me. Dr. Alex Stheynshlyuger and his staff made it easy and confortable. I would recommend them to every man.
