My husband was diagnosed with c-diff August 10th. We could not get an appointment until September 15 ( by then my husband had lost 10 pounds down to 149). He went through two rounds of antibiotics prescribed by Brittany Dickert. On October 20th my husband was rushed to BWMC with a raging fever (that morning he had been cleared of c-diff). He received a fecal transplant. I do not think that my husband would have been rushed to the hospital had the practice been more aggressive.

Not at all impressed. I went for an MRI, heard nothing a week after, so I called for the results two days in a row with no call back. Then, three days later, I receive a letter regarding my results. A letter? REALLY?!? It said that something was found and that I should follow up with my gynecologist, of which I do not even have, because I haven't had issues in this area. WOW, terrible way to tell bad news to a patient!

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.
