Dr. Mark Epstein is now with the Middlesex Digestive Health Endoscopy Center (MDHEC) in Acton, Massachusetts. He has been my gastroenterologist for about 15 years. He is excellent. As important, the team and facilities at the MDHEC are excellent. The entire team is very efficient, diligent and caring. The facilities are top notch. And MDHEC is easy to reach with plenty of close parking. I strongly recommend this gastroenterologist, medical team and facility.

I highly recommend Dr Epstein and the staff at Middlesex Digestive Health Endoscopy Center! I had colorectal cancer 6 years ago, so it is important for me to have an excellent doctor. I trust Dr Epstein completely. So far, I have had two colonoscopies with him. During each, Dr. Epstein was able to do a thorough examination of my entire colon which is twisted and quite difficult. His entire staff is also efficient, competent and friendly.

Dr Epstein has treated me with the utmost consideration. He left no stone unturned when I was referred to him regarding my abdominal pain. I always felt respected and listened to. If you are a detail-oriented person with high anxiety levels, Dr Epstein's thorough and scientific approach will calm you.

I have not been to see him in a couple of years but saw him many times before that. Another Gastroenterologist, with a private office and surgery, had diagnosed me with an intestinal tumor. I had it removed at Emerson Hospital. He did not respond to my concerns, so I switched to Dr. Epstein. Dr. Epstein took the steps to make sure I was all right. I later had digestion issues. He is not a demonstrative man, nor does he have an impressive office, but he's a responsible physician.
