Dr. Epstein is dedicated to finding solutions to problems many other doctors overlook or try to mask. He is a Great Man and a Better Doctor. I would recommend him to anyone with problems they need answers to about their blood pressure or kidney health! He has helped me when no others could find a reason or solution to my health issues. He is The Best!

Dr. Epstein has been my kidney Dr. for some time now. His recommendations to me on how to become healthier have made my life better and easier. He is encouraging, nonjudgmental and I believe he really cares about his practice and the health of his patients. I feel like he does not rush his appointments and I appreciate that he takes the time to address any concerns I have.
