I have been a patient of Dr. Edelman for over 10 years. He is such a great doctor. He is very caring and answers any questions I may have and takes his time explaining what he is going to do. I once asked him a question thru his internet portal and he personally replied within the hour. His entire staff is very professional, efficient and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Edelman.

I saw Dr. Edelman for a consultation on hemorrhoid banding. During the course of the consultation, he recommended I start using MiraLax laxative daily. I immediately noticed a dramatic change in bowel habits, one that alleviated the need for hemorrhoid banding due to less irritation and swelling of those tissues. Thanks to Dr. Edelman, I dodged a bullet.

I have been under Dr. Edelman's care for several years now, and every time I see him I am surprised at how prepared he is, and how informed he is about my condition and issues BEFORE I get there. It's like he has memorized my chart. Extremely caring and professional, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who asks.

What a Doctor! In the past I had a couple of really bad experiences from real bad Doctors in the Downey Area. When I met Dr. Edelman, I was blown away by his kindness and genuine care for his patients, I could not have found a better Doctor to take care of me! You are one of a kind. Thank You Dr. Edelman.

Dr. Edelman performed my colonoscopy. No problems at all, and the post-procedure conversation and recommendations were efficient and very reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Edelman to anyone.

My experience with Dr. Edelman was very positive. I was referred to him by another doctor not associated with Huntington Hospital. He was thorough and answered all of my questions. I was on time for my appointment.
