Mismanaged Practice
I made an appointment to see him last week. My appointment was supposed to be at 10:40 am. I was told to come 15 minutes earlier. When I got there I was asked to fill out some forms. I had asked that they email the forms to me, but was told they could not do this. On the first page of the form I was asked for my height and email address. On the second page the same questions! The forms are ridiculous. When I got there the waiting room was full of people! There is not even a place to get a drink of water. I finally saw Dr. Epstein at 12:10 pm! I told him that my having to wait so long was totally unacceptable. He claimed that people come in unexpectedly with broken bones that have to be set, and this is the reason for the delay. Since he is not the only doctor there, I fail to see why one of them could not be designated each day to deal with emergencies, and the others deal with the regular patients in a timely manner. I asked to speak to the office manager. i asked her, "Why was

I has severe carpal tunnel in both of my wrists. As a DJ I had A LOT of concerns. Dr. Edelstein made sure I was in great hands from his staff to his constant communication and care before during and after my surgery!!! I can’t thank him enough. He did both my wrists at the same time. My hands are as good as new thanks to this incredible Surgeon!!! I would recommend him to everyone I can. Thank you Dr. Edelstein and the Bone & Joint center at Maimonides!!!

Dr. Edelstein operated on my broken wrist. He is a miracle worker. I was back to using my wrist at about 90% capacity in one month after surgery. He is very knowledgeable, has great bedside manners and has the hands of gold. I highly recommend this doctor.

I'm not sure Dr. Edelstein needs any more 5 star reviews... but he certainly deserves all of them. Everything positive has already been said here: no long waits, great bedside manner, straightforward explanations. Dr. Edelstein takes the time to check on you, answer your questions, and above all, my hand feels so much better after surgery and therapy to fix the break. I'd also like to stress that the entire staff is pleasant! The therapists here, Merry and Michael in my case, were also extremely caring and personable... I'd even say friendly. Keep up the great work all!

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!
