What People Say About Dr. Ervin Epstein Jr, MD

Dr. Epstein had no idea what caused my complaint [rash on arms from mites, origin unknown] even when I showed him two examples of mite specimens, he simply brushed them off my skin without examining them under higher magnification. I also had deliberately worn a tee-shirt and sweat pants for convenience--the same "uniform" I wear to almost all my medical appointments; from this he said I looked like a "homeless" person. This offended me, of course & demonstrated he was a lousy clinician.
