Dr. Epstein is amazing! She has a formula that works as long as you follow her plan. She is straight forward and tells you exactly what you need to do for a successful recovery. Her and her wonderful PA Renee are caring, attentive and very accessible.

My Wife has been in agonizing pain and the asstnt refused to make an apptmt because Dr. Epstein is on vacation-when she arrives back, we are told that there is a 3 month wait period for an appointment.When we do finally get an apptmt, we make plans for further tests, instead we get a call a few days later to tell us that you refuse to help my wife. There was no referral to another Dr. or further advice.Dr. Esptein is more concerned with her reputation than actually helping people. Sickening

It has been over 10 years since I entrusted Dr Epstein to perform my 2 spinal fusions. I was very young and very scared never being sick a day in my life but I could no longer live in pain. It was not a walk in the park & a long healing process as long as you follow her strict instructions & direction the long term outcome is very positive. Today I am still living pain free, still standing straight and erect. I owe it all to Dr Epstein. She is a brilliant neurosurgeon & highly recommend her

Dr. Epstein is a Godsend! After suffering with lower back pain and sciatica for 9 months, Dr. Epsteinwas able to spot the problem that was overlooked by an MRI technician in July. As a result of this persons oversight, I spent 6 extra months with a diminished quality of life, most notably not being able to pick up my granddaughter. After a 4.5 hr. Surgery, I was up walking that night and totally pain free from original problem the same day.
