      Dr. Epstein corrected ptosis in my eye last week and I am so pleased so far with the results. Swelling is minimal and I already notice such as improvement and I am looking forward to what the end result will be. I visited many surgeons to possibly use and I am so very happy that I chose Dr. Epstein. He is extremely knowledgable, sincere, honest and made me feel at ease during this process. I highly recommend him and his wonderful staff to anyone that needs an eye surgery.

      Very competent. Wonderful plastic surgeon.

      Dr. Epstein has a medical assistant (I think her name is Rebecca) who is extremely rude and impatient. She has no human skills and needs more training. Her rudeness is incredible. Dr. Epstein was not there on my follow up appointment and I needed to see him so interested another doctor. He does not spend enough time with patients and is not very patient either. He is one more doctor who thinks that he is above the patient. Being a doctor is a sacred mission. Compassion is needed!
      in Hollywood, FL |
      Extremely kind, informative, tremendous attention to detail, which is crucial when choosing a surgeon. Also, honest! I felt I was in good hands with Dr. Epstein!

      I am sure you have heard the expression, the proof is in the pudding. Well you would never have known that I had surgery.on a delicate part of my eye. He is a fantastic surgeon..I could not get over when I looked in the mirror and saw the results.. .My first meeting with Dr. Epstein, he did not rush me and sat and explained everything that was going to be done..And answered all of my questions. He put me totally at ease and would highly recommend him with total confidence. M. Keller

      Dr. Gil Epstein is an amazing, terrific eye Doctor and I can highly highly recommend him for eye surgery. I had my eye lids done 10 days ago and I have No black and blue, and there was no pain, He has an outstanding bedside manner, and great support staff and best of all, no one can tell that I have had eye lid surgery
      in Hollywood, FL |
      Excellent. He explained things clearly, was thorough in examinations, phoned twice to keep me informed, good bedside manner. Thank you Dr. Epstein.

      Dr. Epstein performed an eye lid lift on my upper lids. Before, my lids were saggy and tired looking. The surgery and follow-up went exactly as he had explained, and the results are GREAT. I look years younger and I keep getting compliments from friends; they can't figure out what is different.
      in Coconut Creek, FL |
      Dr. Epstein performed upper and lower eye lift surgery, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would recommend Dr. Epstein and his team if you're considering the same type of surgery. The healing was quick and the outcome remarkable.
      in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
      Very difficult to schedule an appointment within any reasonable amount of time. And when my surgery was decided upon it had to be booked several more months in advance so that the total time elapsed from initial visit to the date of the operation was about 4 months- way too long. In addition, the time waiting to see the doctor was several hours each time beyond the scheduled appointment time. One time I had to actually cancel the appointment after waiting several hours.
      in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
      I had a 9:20 appointment. I left at 11:00 after being told there was another patient ahead of me. They told me the usual wait was 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Worse than ridiculous.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
