Dr. Epstein, his staff and the surgical staff at Conway Medical Center cared for me over a period of eight months this year. Dr. Epstein is an amazing physician: caring, thoughtful, easy to talk with. He takes time with each patient, explains thoroughly the diagnosis, subsequent procedure and prognosis. He's incredibly upbeat .. serious when needed but has a delightfully wicked sense of humor as well. Found no one in the medical community who does not think very highly of this man! Recommend :-)

Weston and I would like to thank Doctor Epstein and his team staff for the great job they did while Weston Dix was in the hospital under their care and he was taken good care of while there. Dr. Aaron Epstein accomplished an amazing surgery on Weston and we were very pleased with his work that he did. Also his team staff were so good to us while Weston was there in the hospital and upon his followup appointment as well. Thank you for your great surgery that was performed on Weston.

I can't really say enough concerning his care and patience. I entered Conway Hospital through emergency and did not expect I was in need of emergency surgery. Dr. Epstein was more than professional in his manner and practices. I, without any hesitation, highly recommend Dr. Epstein.
