Dr. Edelson takes care of my Mother and Father for a few years. I couldn't ask for a finer physician and and gentleman. Dr. Edelson is an excellent diagnostician and makes excellent referrals when necessary. As a nurse, I can honestly say that if you are looking for a physician, Dr. Edelson is the best.
