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...more
