Patient Comments (8)
in Haslet, TX |
Doctor E, in my opinion, is by far the best overall physician, specialist, medicine man, or doctor that I have ever had the pleasure of being under the care of in my 56 years. He has helped me with other medical conditions as well as my kidneys. After my primary care physician retired I haven't been real happy with my new one so Dr. E. has stepped up to the plate. He makes even the negativity in life seem not so dreary. A great doctor, a kinder, more genuine soul who makes me smile every time.

Dr. Epstein, DO, does listen to my concerns and seems to understand my reluctance to take certain medications. I appreciate his care and understanding.

Dr Epstein is an awesome nephrologist, he takes plenty of time to visit with patients, he is friendly and engaging and listens to all my questions and comments. He believes in taking a proactive approach and I trust him totally with my care. I hope I never have to change doctors!!

HE'S KIND, COMPASSIONATE AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE.
in Yukon, OK |
Dr. Epstein is hands-down the best Dr. I have ever seen. His personality is awesome and he makes sure to relate all issues in a manner that you can understand, regardless of your foundational knowledge of the issue. I literally could not be more pleased with him. Last year I moved to another state for work, yet I still travel to see him 3-4 times per year because he is absolutely worth the time and expense of getting back to North TX. On a scale of 1-10, he is a 20.
