PATIENT FEEDBACK

“The office staff is professional and caring. Dr. Epstein takes time to educate and explain tests and procedures. He listens to his patient’s concerns and answers questions thoroughly. He is an excellent surgeon and one I would highly recommend.”

Jeanne D.

“Dr Epstein is awesome. He has a great bedside manner and cares about his patients. He takes extra time to answer your questions and makes the most anxious patients (me) feel at ease. Surgery was a huge success and the recovery was honestly short and easy. The office staff is super helpful and sweet and Kristen went over and above to help with scheduling, insurance and coordinating all the moving parts. Thank you so much for a great experience!”

Christine D.

“This is by far one of the best doctors that I have ever had in my life and I am 60. I would recommend him to my most loved family members and anyone else that needed his services.”
