I’ve had the pleasure of being Dr. Epstein twice this year, excellent bedside manner, genuine, sincere, listens well, explains what he’ll be doing and why, really makes you fell at ease, which is especially important when it comes to having a colonoscopy. I recommend him without hesitation.

Dr Epstein's nurse practicioner let me down. I am still as sick as before, but further testing that I was requested was denied. The nurse practitioner seemed skeptical of my sympmtoms, and suggested I see a therapist to " help deal with my stress." Now Ineed to begin with another doctor tohopefully get some answers.

I know this must sound like all of the Doc's patients must be in love with him or a relative. After all, He seems to be too good to be true BUT he is ! Caring, funny, informative...everything you could hope for except he does charge money, NOT overcharge, but you might get a bill (the guy has to make a living). Even his staff and the nurses at the hospital love this guy.
