What People Say About Dr. Erica Engelstein, MD
Reply
Brilliant! Thoughtful, informed, communicative, measured. I was recently admitted to the hospital due to a complex mix of sudden onset health issues that impacted my heart. Dr. Engelstein was my assigned - and FIRST - cardiologist. She was reassuring and relaxed. She left me feeling highly informed. An outstanding healthcare experience!
