He and his staff intentionally destroyed my eyes. I'll likely never see properly again. The best surgeons in the country are shocked at what Dr. Epstein and his staff did to my eyes. Falsified Records, Destroyed records, Incomplete Records

Dr. Epstein wow what can I say. You improved my life 100% I am a Mail Carrier and glasses were a very big problem. When it is raining, or in the winter when you cover your face your glasses fog up. Try to see out your windows just the elements outside are hard enough to deal with let alone have glasses on. I had my Lasik and PRK done on June 13, 2019 and it is now October 2019 and my eyes are perfect. I am so happy ad can't thank you enough. The whole team in your office are awesome. Just waking up everyday knowing I don't have to wear glasses makes me happy what can I say WOW Dr. E you are amazing.

Dr. Epstein and his staff have been amazing to work with. Our son was diagnosed with a rare corneal disease, for which Dr. Epstein has extensive experience in treating. I cannot thank Dr. Epstein and his staff enough for their thoughtful care throughout every step of our son's treatment.
