Dr. Epstein is a wonderful surgeon. He's done a total knee replacement for me and eased my mind of any fears I might have had about it. He is easy to talk to, and helps me understand anything I might be confused about. I highly recommend? him.

Thanks to Dr. Epstein I am walking and enjoying life in its fullest, no pain at all, with out any surgery or other painfull ways, a shot every 6 to 8 months do for me, I am not a good candidate for knee replacement or other tipe of sugery due to my long time previous corecting surgery. I am super happy with his treatment, no drugs or pain killers is great for me.

I was and am very satisfied with the care Dr. Epstein showed me. Very professional and knowledgeable in his field. I felt very confident in having him do my surgery and the care he has provided afterwards. Would highly recommend him and this hospital.
Thank you for the positive feedback! We appreciate the kind words.

Doctor Epstein is a number 1 hands down the most caring doctor I have ever met. He ordered an MRI of my neck and the radiologist did not see the cyst that Dr. Epstein saw in my neck. It was not in the report. Doctor Epstein gets to the bottom of your problems. He actually talks to you face to face and not just about the reason you are there. He makes you feel comfortable like a person not a number. I can't say enough good about doctor Epstein, very trust worthy and doesn't rush you out.
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!

Very unprofessional on handling my case I tore my acl. Went back many 4 times never seen Dr eipstein again. Than my knee started acting up again and they said they never seen me after my surgery which is completely untrue.
We are sorry to hear this and truly value your feedback. Patient experience is important to us so we will make every effort to address any concerns you may have. If you would like to speak with someone about this experience, please call our office.

Dr. Epstein listened to my concerns, asked questions, and performed a thorough exam of my knees.
Milwaukee, WI |
Dr. Epstein dropped my father as a patient with no explanation. He called the healthcare facility where my father is receiving rehab and told them he was no longer his patient. He did not even have the decency or professionalism to contact my mother. This is a terrible way to treat people in their mid to late 80s.
We encourage you to send us a private message with your contact information, or reach out to us at 863-357-0540 so that we may discuss this issue.

When I called the office I was offered a same day appointment. That is awesome and the girl was so friendly when she was helping me. Very pleasant
in Logansport, IN |
My initial ankle surgery was done in Indiana and Dr Epstein agreed to take me as a patient after we went to Florida for the winter. He communicated very well and took good care of me. I would recommend him to anyone.
in Okeechobee, FL |
A member of the office staff made it a point to express their opinions of the patient's attitude and/or difficulty in receiving information. Only one sheet was provided by staff in the beginning. After being called to the exam room, twelve more pages were required. Dr. Epstein was rude in correcting me of his diagnosis from the report given to me from the referring doctor. The doctor also typed in the clinical notes that I was being difficult towards and staff. This place is unacceptable.
