I first met Dr. Edelman over 6 years ago with severe sinus problems. I was miserable and desperately needed help. Since I've been with Dr. Edelman for the past 6 years, my severe sinus problems have been maintained and under control. My polyps and sinus problems will probably never go away but under the direction of Dr. Edelman caring, thoughtful and professional help, I will never have the acute sinus problems I had before. Thank you Dr. Edelman!

I highly recommend Dr Edelman to everyone. I was referred to him by my family doctor for a serious balance disorder and I couldn't be more thankful. My life changed when I came under his care and because of him I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. He is one of the few dr. that actually care, spends time w/ you and strives to partner w/ you to heal you. His knowledge is unsurpassed, hetc truly is a miracle worker. Thank you Dr Edelman, I can't praise you enough.
Dr. Edelman has been treating me and family members for many years and hands-down one of the best medical doctors I have seen. His demeanor and bed-side manner is calm, positive, thorough, attentive, flexible, and personal. I find that doctors usually are rushed when visiting their patients, but not with Dr. Edelman. I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone that values their health and wants a doctor that’s intelligent, empowering, and loves what he does. 10 stars in my book!!

I have been a patient for almost 2 years. Dr. Edelman took me as an emergency referral and I received excellent care. He is cautious in treatment plans and honest about your situation. He is likeable and remembers personal stories about his patients.

I have been a patient of dr Edelman for many years. He has been wonderful at taking care of my Ent issues. I have refered many of my friends and family to dr.Edelman and all feel the same.I felt that I should be sharing this with the public who are looking for a very good Ent doctor like i was . The office staff are very professional and happy to schedule your visit to meet your time frame. hope you take my suggestion on this referral and you will be as happy as I was.

I highly recommend Dr. Edelman. He treated my children in the past. Recently I was the patient. He did a thorough exam and carefully explained the diagnosis and how I can manage the problem through modifications in my diet. His staff was friendly and courteous. Making an appointment was easy.

I would not recommend him as a ENT. I went to him to have my ears checked he said he saw some wax. Told me to sit perfectly still and I would be ok, he placed a tool in my ear then started to remove the wax I was in excruciating pain did not move. he proceeded to the other ear. I was then sent down to the first floor for a hearing test. I was bleeding from my right ear. They sent me back up stairs he look at it flushed ear. I was bleeding in both my ears I now have ringing in my ears and pain.

I think these negative reviews are absolutely absurd. My entire family has been going to Bruce Edelman for years and hold him and his staff in the very highest regard on every consideration. Also, I have several friends who have been seeing him for years and would also give him the very highest recommendations.
in Denville, NJ |
DO NOT GO TO HIM, THE WORST! Ive never written a review but must warn others.He is rude, abusive and doesn't listen. Every word of negative reviews is true & then some. He has a script and he cannot deviate from it even to answer a question-U R told to stop interrupting. He scolds you for not behaving & if u try talking over him he accuses u of yelling-when he is the one yelling. if u don't "behave" he says u have an anger problem. Insists diagnosis is right even if you don't have the symptoms.

Saw Dr. Edelman and I must agree with all the other negative reviews. He is nasty, short tempered, verbally abusive and has no business treating patients. He makes no apologies for his apparent distane for sick people looking for compassionate medical care. He is arrogant and cold. If you can, find someone else, especially if your sick, scared and worried as he had no regard for his patients feelings. Read the other reviews and trust them, as they are true. Bad temperament, would not recommend!
Each time we have waited well over an hour and a half to even set foot in an exam room. Staff is rude and unapologetic when asked abt the long wait time. The office is cramped and dingy- it's supposed to be a pediatric waiting room!!!
I had to wait almost two hours in the waiting room then I was placed in a exam room for another hour while I could hear Dr Edelman talking into a dictaphone. Finally he came in to see me. No apologies whatsoever. This man is very rude, hostile, and inconsiderate .

After waiting for over an hour with no apology he was curt rude condescending and insulted me by calling me a 3 yr old because I was nervous about a very uncomfortable procedure. My daughter saw him as an emergency patient 14 yrs ago and I thought the same thing. Mistakenly I though he had grown as a doctor and a person, I was wrong. He may be book smart but I will not see him again very unprofessional a shame because he may be a good doctor just not very human.
