Dr. Edelstein is a highly skilled surgeon. I had one of my eyes operated a few years ago by another doctor and now I had my 2nd eye done by Dr. Edelstein. What a difference! Dr. Edelstein is excellent!! I wish I would have had my first eye done by him.

Dr. Edelstein is totally awesome and his workers are friendly, professional and efficient. I am very impressed by his receptionists because occasionally I see some really crazy patients (and I mean really abusive nutcases) and Dr. Edelstein's secretaries keep their cool and are totally respectful to those patients. But the important thing, is the doctor and Dr. Edelstein is tops!! He is knowledgeable, thorough and has a great bedside matter!! 5 Stars!!
