I have never felt healthier and had more trust in any doctor. Dr. Edelson's communication is excellent; explains everything and is very responsive with any questions I have and any follow up. I have total trust in his diagnosis and decision making. He is the best doctor I have ever been to.

Dr. Edelson was recommended to me by a dear friend after she saw and experienced the struggles I was having. I was struggling with weight gain, hormonal imbalances and then developed an autoimmune disorder. I was frankly, a mess. Dr. Edelson started me on a path of health and happiness. All things start with us, but we need a Dr. who listens and cares. I am so happy to have met Dr. E. I am now on the right path and we are on this journey TOGETHER.

I've been his patient for 9 years and he not only has improved my quality of life, he saved my life. At 65, I am in better shape than I was when I walked through his door in 2010. There is no finer physician than "Dr. E"

I have been a patient of Dr. Edelson's for 15 years. I first heard him on NYU Doc's radio station. I knew from that moment on that he was the doctor for me. He completely understands the dynamics that contribute to obesity and backs his treatment plan on current science and research. His referrals have also been great providers. I love Jo his nutritionist. The office staff are extremely helpful and responsive as well. I can't recommend this this practice enough.
