During the height of the pandemic, I developed an allergy. My Dermatologist recommended Dr. Epstein. She was and is an amazing diagnostician. Dr. Epstein (using internet connections) remotely interviewed me, ordered blood tests, and was able to diagnose my problems. The Doctor and I never met in person but her expertise brought my issues to a successful conclusion. I highly recommend Dr. Epstein for her professionalism, caring and thoughtful concern for her patients.

I was a patient for many years. An incompetent technician gave me a shot in the wrong area of my arm. It has been 2 years now and only have 60% mobility due to carelessness. She dropped me as a patient saying I shouldn't get serums any more! I continue to see serious medical professionals on my damage. Beware as it is your life.

She is very respectful. She encourages my participation, so that my own ideas about my condition become an important element in treatment. Let me put it this way. I have moved some distance from her office. One of my great hopes for post-COVID 19 life is that I will appear in her waiting room.

Dr Epstein listens very carefully to what is happening and takes a thorough history before anything, which is more than refreshing. As well she provided me with a strategy to move forward and that method has worked in eliminating foods that I had no idea I was allergic to. I feel so much better already, and she helped me find a way to live with alternatives so I don’t get sick and inflamed every day. I would recommend her wholeheartedly. As well she is early or exactly on time and I never wait to speak to her. She is an excellent physician.

Dr. Epstein is very thorough and extremely knowledgeable! She really cares and takes the time to listen and help find solutions to make you feel better! She takes the time to help figure out what you need and doesn’t just prescribe a one pill fits all! She has helped me with my asthma more than any other doctor I have been to in the past!

Dr Epstein always takes the same time to hear the concerns or issues that may have occurred. I have been taking my daughter to Dr Epstein for a few years now and have seen a drastic improvement in her allergic break outs and we have been able to get better control of the allergic reactions in general. Dr Epstein is extremely patient and truely shows that she cares for her patients.
