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.

I would highly recommend the doctor, not only is he very competent and knowledgeable he has a gentle bedside manner that is empathetic and caring and doesn't treat his patients like numbers where he is ready to say next. Since he is so good many people go to him and since he is thorough appointments take time, this is normal for a great doctor like him. It is refreshing knowing there are doctors like him out there.

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!!

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.
