He has been my GI Dr. for 4 years. He is always friendly and compassionate Dr. Edelson always explains everything to me AND is very thorough. Because of this he was able to diagnose a liver disease I have at a very early stage. He always asks after my husband who works at the hospital also. I trust Dr. Edelson completely and know I am in good hands!

I called ready for my next 3yr appt. Was told please wait for our letter, which I got, few days later. I called to make an appointment, and was told that I was not wanted as a patient, because I had to many no shows, and cancellations. All of which, I have no knowledge off. And this I got from the lady who answers the phone,when nobody's there...her tone, was, rude, unprofessional, and sarcastic. Im glad my doctor referred me some where else. I don't need to be treated like a third rate citizen.

Very helpful doctor. I recently had an appointment with him and he has helped with every need. I've gone to other doctors in the past and was never satisfied until I came to his office. I highly recommend Dr. Edelson.

If you have a problem that requires any thought or extra effort do NOT see Dr Edelson. If you need a doctor who will find the cause of your problem and offer alternative solutions, this is not the doctor to see.
