Dr. Rajpara called me on 4/17/20 & 5/1/20 to PULL THE PLUG on my dad who had Covid-19, who’s at Carroll Hospital Center. He said he’d never get better or be the same again! He was rude, no compassion & or respect for my feelings!!! He told me to prepare for a funeral & call the family in.

Review for Dr. Epstein

DO NOT SEE THIS UNPROFESSIONAL piece of trash! He was extremely rude and openly scoffed at my homosexuality. I went there to see if I had cysts because I was experiencing pain and he insinuated it was because of an STD. Did absolutely nothing for me, except to talk down to me.

Dr. Bender performed a hip replacement over 20 years ago. I played sports most of those years. Ran, twisted, fell and did everything I was use to physically. He's top notch. Now am an older guy but that hip just keeps working. You can depend on this skilled doctor.
