in Sharon, WI |
Dr. Epstein is an excellent doctor. He is knowledgable, informative, and more than willing to explain any questions you may have regarding diagnosis or procedures. Both he and his staff are very friendly, helpful and courteous. I have a lot of confidence in his many years of experience, and feel safe in his care. Would HIGHLY recommend his office for any ophthalmology services needed!
in Romeoville, IL |
I have keratoconis and he is one of the few and best specialists in this area in Illinois. He did cross-linking with me and was amazingly helpful. I was just told he left his practice at Mercy and am devastated. In my experience, there is a big difference between a doctor who treats cornea disease and a doctor who specializes in keratoconis. You want a Dr. Epstein if you have this vision problem; not someone who will rush you into a cornea transplant.
