Dr. Edelstein is a caring and knowledgeable physician. He is very detail, patient all testing was done at the Bay Pkway location. He took care of my elderly mother with much attention. Strongly recommend him.

Dr David Edelstein is an outstanding doctor. He listens to all my concerns and I trust in his recommendations. He keeps me highly informed with my treatment. From my opinion, when a doctor knows his patients by name when he sees them before looking at their chart, that’s a sign that the doctor takes interest in his patient and that’s Dr. Edelstein. He is an amazing othropedic doctor. I would recommend him to a family member or a friend!!

Dr. Edelstein and surrounding team are very good with kids. We couldn't be more pleased and have been recommending the Bone & Joint Center to friends with children.

I had to come see Dr. Edelstein after breaking my wrist for the first time. About a week later I had surgery to repair the wrist (first experience with surgery). I felt very comfortable the entire time. Dr. Edelstein has an excellent bedside manner and is very approachable! It is about a month and half later and my wrist is feeling so much better. The rest of the staff was also very personable and accommodating.

Had both carpal & cubital tunnel surgery done. I'm now about a month & 1/2 after, & I couldn't be happier. The numbness was gone instantaneously, and the incisions have healed nicely. Dr. Edelstein has amazing "bed-side" manors, explains every step, & allows you to make the best decision knowing all the info needed. I cannot thank the doctor enough. As I am in the computer field, this has literally allowed me to continue working in my profession.

Dr. Edelstein is a great doctor and knows his business well. A pleasure to deal with

Dr. Edelstein worked very well with my son, who had broken his wrist and ruptured tendon to his left thumb. He casted his wrist and operated on his thumb, moving a tendon from one part of his hand and reattached it to his thumb (which he could not use at all). The surgery was extremely successful. My son now has full use of his wrist and his thumb thanks to Dr.Edelstein. He was very professional, informative, and friendly throughout the procedures. Highly recommend.

Two hours waiting to see a doctor. Two minutes with the doctor. It is not a medical office, it's a factory. This doctor did not want to hear or discuss anything, got forbid it would take another minute of his time. Waste of time and money.

Highly professional doctor and surgeon. Very good attitude to patients.
in Brooklyn New York, NY |
He performed surgery on my wrist in October 2015. He was compassionate and answered my many questions, as I was very anxious about this procedure. My follow up visits have been nothing but pleasant.
in Brooklyn, NY |
This dudes the man. He'll put up with your inane questions and all your random crap. Oh yea, and he'll fix you. Couldn't recommend a doctor any higher.
in Brooklyn, NY |
He'san expert, and is easy to talk to. Did a complicated surgery for me and i'm so thankful.
New York, NY |
They sent me an additional bill more than a year and a half after a visit. He did not provide any treatment.
