Dr. Epstein is a very caring doctor, he does take the time to explain the results after your procedure. My wife had a diagnosis of gastritis he perscribed her medicine and the problem of my wife showed no signs of improving. He did order other test for her. And after a couple of tests he calls and says that their was some concerns regarding a test that was performed. He said she needs to have a very special test for a biopsy. We were visiting oregon ar the time. I asked should we be in a hurry to get this done and should we head back to our home in AZ. He said no hurry at all stay and enjoy you visit. Turns out that was the wrong ADVICE. He is a caring dr. I just wish he would have told us it was very serious. As it turned out it was pancreatic cancer. When we arrived at our home. The oncologist admitted my wife into the hospital. His words were "she can't wait!" I am not saying Dr. Ebstein is a bad Dr. He is very caring, I just wish he would have said yes its serious. After learning how to read the report. Her tumor marker was 1250. I guess that's high. I hope in the future he will say, yes it's serious.

Knowledgeable and thorough
Dr Epstein is one of the best! He is very caring and focuses on your comfort. Dr Epstein is thorough with explanations and very adamant that his goal is your comfort before, during, and after the procedure. 5/5 in my opinion. You won’t find a more caring doctor to perform your procedure. Thank you so much for all your knowledge and compassion.

Disappointed with a staff member
I have an upcoming colonoscopy and was advised to pick out a certain prep prescription. When I went to the pharmacy even with insurance it was going to cost $100.00. To me that's a lot of money! So I recontacted Dr. Epstein's office. I told them i'm not paying that much just to drink and then leave my body. I was made to feel cheap, then told of another option. I was told i'd be sent new instructions, and a new prescription. I never received anything, so I called back the next day. This same staff member basically made me feel incompetent. Asking if i had turned on my computer? or checked the trash. I kept trying to say yes! but she kept talking over me. I couldn't get a word or explanation out. She needs to learn to listen, as we are all not rich, and have our own life issues. I do trust Dr. Epstein, and like him, that's why i'll stay with my upcoming procedure.

He doesn't listen and talks right over you. We are changing to another doctor. He might be a capable doc but wait is he a surgeon? Might explain the poor bedside manner. When dealing with gastro type issues it is helpful to get lots of info from your doc..doesn't happen here. We gave him a 2 because of bedside manner. I wouldn't recommend him.

I came to Dr. Epstein when my medical insurance changed. I was previously diagnosed with Crohn's disease and he tried to convince me I no longer had it (after a colonscopy confirmed I was in remission). I was in remission because of a life-changing treatment I started when I was first diagnosed (Remicade). He encouraged me to get off of it and then refused to put me back on it when my symptoms reappeared. He never looked at my previous test records from another doctor.

Scarey and dangerous. This doctor fails to listen to his patients and missed a life threatening, long term issue. I would never risk my life and go back to him. He is dangerous and it almost cost me my life.

The time from my first appointment until the procedure was much quicker than with previous providers. Dr. Epstein and his staff were very reassuring and easy to work with.

It could not have been a better experience, considering what was done. The doctor was very professional and kind, and inspired confidence. It was lovely to hear his staff speak so highly of him, as well, particularly in the hospital.
