Dr. Edelstein was great. I broke my wrist at the beginning of the pandemic, thought it had healed, and then had to have surgery, which was very discouraging. But Dr. Edelstein walked me through it, was clear about what would happen, and as I healed was consistently honest and straightforward about what to expect. Also (maybe due to the conditions imposed by the pandemic) I never waited more than a few minutes to be seen on the about 5 total visits I had and the Dr. wasn't rushed, answered the questions I needed to ask.

Broke my middle finger in a snowboarding accident. Dr Edelstein was professional, clear and very helpful along the way. After a few visits and one surgery, I am extremely happy to say I have completely recovered! Overall seamless experience and although it was a bad break, Dr Edelstein was confident throughout the whole process. Rightfully so.

I absolutely love Dr. Edelstein! I've been a patient for the past 4 years, he performed 2 of my wrist surgeries. I found him simply by researching the best hand surgeons in NY and reading reviews and it was the best decision I made. His bedside manner is amazing. He's extremely informative every step of the way, he answers all questions and makes sure you have a clear understanding from beginning to end. He and his staff responds immediately to any questions or concerns you may have, may it be with appointments, prescriptions or necessary documentation. The onsite services are a great plus. My casts and splints were made onsite and customized to my liking. If I had to say anything negative it would only be in regards to the wait time to see Dr. Edelstein for scheduled appointments, it can be anywhere from a half an hour to an hour on average. However, I personally believe he is worth the wait, he's a fantastic doctor and has a great personality!

I was very pleased with Dr Edelstein. He had a great bedside manner, was kind, very easy to talk to and patient with my many questions. Also, I barely felt the injection needle so his level of skill and finesse was above par. I would Definitely recommend him. I recommended him to a family member and she has been happy with her treatment so far.

My first visit was great from the girls outside to the xray tech and his assistant they treated me awesome. I was referred to Dr. David Edelstein for a non-Functuonal left ring finger. I crushed my finger almost 30 years ago and have not been able to close my hand. Dr. Edelstein was great he made like I was a part of my surgery and the day of the surgery. Brooklyn Surgery Center treated me like a king from the doctor to the nurses was the best experience. From his trusting smile to a great bedside manner he takes away all those nerves that your feeling. I had my finger amputated and the old pain is allready gone in 10 days. When you go to his office he calls you by his first name, and just makes you feel like a like more than a patient and truly cares. I have some more issues to take care of he is my doctor. Thank you Sir.

Dr. Edelstein treated me for carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome. He is an excellent surgeon with great bed side manner. He took the time to explain and answer my questions. Dr. Edelstein was very personable and made me feel comfortable about the surgery. Dr. Edelstein also treated my 4 year old daughter last year for a fractured wrist. He was excellent with young children.

I was very impressed with the level of concern and care provided by Dr. Edelstein. The pre operative care was excellent, the Doctor was mindful of my concerns and explained the various options I had. The surgery went as planned and my post operative recovery went better than I expected. His follow up advice and care were very solicitous of my needs. He was easy to talk to and and able to relate complex issues in an understandable manner.

I've been playing guitar since I was 5 years old, power-lifting since I was 19. When I tore my tendon, I was afraid I'd never be able to perform at the same level again, if ever. Through surgery, guidance, and help, Dr. Edelstein has made it possible for me to get back to what I love doing in no time. I knew I had paved a difficult road for myself, but with Dr. Edelstein, I got through everything without breaking a sweat.
