Dr. Epstein is extremely rude. He does not listen to his patients nor does he make eye contact. I have charcot foot and he said I should be wearing sandals instead of tennie shoes. At the time I had six dislocations in my feet and he said I needed start oxygen therapy which in no way shape or form will cure osteomyelitis. Dr Epstein it is time for you to retire!!!

Racist patients in the lobby sat in pain for an hour and 50 minutes and they took lunch instead of seeing us. Total bs.

Nothing but unprofessional people that work here. They're not capable of thinking on their own and yes this includes his front desk and Dr. Epstein himself. When I went for post galbladder removal problems, he blew me off saying that it was probably an ulcer, which couldn't be the case since I was on meds for ulcers to begin with. The staff and him are slow and rude, you wait an hour and a half until you finally see the dr. No one at the front desk knows how to use a simple phone. Pathetic
