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!

Matt W – Oct 27, 2020
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.

Jesse – May 27, 2020
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.

Vicky Esses – Nov 20, 2019
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.
