Patient Comments (8)
Jackson, NJ |
called for an appointment and had to leave a message. No one called back. Called again and was told they could give me an appointment in May (this is November). I'm already diagnosed with a disease and they want me to wait 6 months. Terrible. Look elsewhere for a good doctor who cares.

I was a first time patient and I was in a lot of pain. I was very unhappy about the way I was treated. She has no warmth, no caring, no bed side manner and dimmisive. I waited 3 months to get appt. and got no help from her. My eye doctor and primary doctor cared more about my health than she did. I was sent for blood work and told everything is fine. I am not fine. I am in pain. then told to come back in 3 months. for what. she didn't help me this time. I would not recommend her. disappointed

I liked Dr. Edelman, didn' t jump on the prescription band right away, wanted to monitor me for a couple of months, but after my blood work came back she stated I had to take care of that problem and then return to her for the treatment of my original visit. I like her
Barnegat, NJ |
Don't expect any warmth from her. She is dismissive and there are plenty of other doctors who are just as educated but actually try and care.
in Toms River, NJ |
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Edelman is kind, attentive, empathetic, and takes the necessary time with you to get the whole story. She listens. She is gentle knowing you're already in pain and validates that fact. I had the best experience with her, and trust that she'll get to the bottom of my pain issues.
Brooklyn, NY |
Dr Edelman does not return phone calls! Not even to other to Dr's! Our neurologist has had two calls out to her, and for over a week now. There is issue involving dosage of medication that she needs to weigh in on and she has not even answered him back. This is outrageously unprofessional. I would not recommend her. Especially if you are looking for a concerned Dr with a good bed side manner.
Toms River, NJ |
When I first saw Dr. Edelman, I could hardly walk. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I completely trust all that she has done for me. I would highly recommend Dr. Edelman.
