Review for Dr. Epstein

Dr. Vaid and his staff were wonderful. I felt like he actually listened to me and cared about my well-being. He didn't rush me out of the office and took my concerns seriously. I felt like an active participant, which seems rare lately. I'd definitely recommend him.

He gave me a new life.

Review for Dr. Davis

He had me scanned for mental illness while my problem was cervical nerve issues. Now I can't receive proper treatment anywhere. My medical records are tarnished and doctors second guess anything I say.
