Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I love the excitement and ever-changing world of medicine. I'm fascinated by the constant evolution of it - from new drugs and procedures to research - there is always so much to learn and apply to patient care and there will always be more. I'm pleased to see current shift to value-based medical care, because I started this practice to help and heal patients, and value-based care shifts the focus towards being more pro-active and less re-active in managing health, and that's good for everyone.Read more

I started going to Dr.Epstein after it was identified that I'm at a high risk for colon cancer since my mom had stage 3 rectal cancer, etc. If it weren't for Dr. Epstein, my mom would not be alive today so I'm forever grateful that he stepped in as her doctor and I'm knowledgeable enough to know since I'm high risk, I have to be screened every 5 years for colon cancer. I started going to him since my mom was already a patient. My only critique is he can be spread too thin.
