Patient Comments (1)
in Brooklyn, NY |
On July 27, 2017, Dr. Epstein operated on my right eye (cataract surgery). He did such an amazing job that on August 10, 2017, I am having the left one done. This physician is EXCELLENT. The whole procedure took between 15 to 20 minutes. I had absolutely NO pain after the anesthetic wore off. Dr. Epstein's office and the staff at Brook Plaza are magnificent, professional and compassionate. I am sorry I didn't do this procedure sooner. I LOVE YOU DOCTOR EPSTEIN!
