Dr Epstein did my son's ankle surgery, inserting plates and screws to repair a football injury. He was great throughout. He set expectations every step of the way and explained things in terms we could understand. We'd highly recommend him.

Dr. Epstein was able to do an exam and identified a potential meniscus tear. Once this was confirmed via MRI, surgery was scheduled. The day of surgery went very smoothly. Dr. Epstein and his staff are very professional and made me feel extremely comfortable during and after the surgery. My procedure was done in the morning and I was standing in the afternoon. I did not experience any pain after surgery and did not take any pain medication. I started rehab on Day 3 full function at 4 weeks

As an active 39-year-old runner, it was very important to me that Dr Epstein cares about returning his patients to the quality-of-life they expect.

Dr. Epstein gave me hope in the darkest time of my life.. His bed side manner is superb and as a surgeon he is amazingly skilled. Since my two surgeries he performed other doctors have looked at my X-rays and called Dr. Epstein's work a "home run" .... Great man and great doctor!

Dr. Eptstein was referred to us by a neighbor after my son's foot injury was not healing. We were seen the next day and from the first appointment, he put us at ease with his knowledge, skill, empathy & kindness. An MRI confirmed the need for the surgery he recommended and we were able to schedule the surgery quickly. The surgery was successful and the follow-up visits were easy to schedule. His staff worked with us to provide the necessary documentation for school. We highly recommend him!!

I had 2 rotator cuff repairs with Dr. Epstein. With each injury (1 to each shoulder) he was very thorough in his diagnostics procedures and able to clearly explain my problem, tell me the options and walked me through the surgical procedures. He showed great confidence in achieving his surgical goals (1 of my should would probably never be a 100%) and shared his success rate for such a surgery when I asked. He was attentive in my follow up visits, always answering my question and concerns.

I can't say enough good things about the care of Dr. Epstein and his staff. His knowledge, compassion, and care is like nothing I have experienced before with any doctor. He expertly repaired my torn bicep. As someone who had never had surgery and was extremely nervous, he walked me through everything with such care and bedside manner that I knew I was in the best possible hands. His office staff was equally as nice and accommodating. I highly recommend him for any of your orthopedic needs.

I would recommend Dr. Goldstein to my friends and family. He was thorough with his explanation of treatment and surgery. He informed me of all options for my condition. He is attentive when he speaks with you. He is trustworthy

I had a posterior labral tear in my left shoulder and Dr. Epstein performed surgery. I am so immensely impressed with Dr. Epstein's medical skills and bedside manner that I strongly recommend him to everyone experiencing orthopedic issues and insist that my own family members see him. His thoroughness and attentiveness in appointments was so reassuring. After struggling to find even a primary doctor who is so professional, I always felt under such good care with this doctor.
