Dr. Edelstein is a great doctor and knows his business well. A pleasure to deal with
in Brooklyn, NY |
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.
in Brooklyn, NY |
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.
in Brooklyn, NY |
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 |

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.
