RN Linda is fantastic!
I needed to understand the process of scheduling an appointment for a colonoscopy. I also had insurance questions. Linda answered the phone at the office and was amazingly helpful. She carefully explained the scheduling and appointment process and had me scheduled quickly for a consultation. Men need to be vigilant about color cancer screening and we need providers who make that process easy. Linda is a fantastic first Patient contact. She really works to get all the information needed to give you great healthcare.

Excellent care provider
I have had several procedures by these folks and they always provide superior service and professionalism. Dr Epstein always clearly explains what to expect and delivers east to understand findings. My family and I will always be patients here because great service in a pleasant environment is hard to find.

In my pre-procedure consult, Dr Epstein was friendly and knowledgeable. He asked pertinent background questions about my prior and existing medical history; and answered my questions thoroughly about the procedure and temporarily stopping my bloodthinner medication. Staff was friendly and quickly set up appointment for the procedure.

Dr. Epstein is truly one of the best specialists I have encountered. He took time to explain my issue in layman’s terms so I could understand my condition. He explained the different options to address my condition and sent me for the procedures I needed. After my appointment he immediately sent notes to my primary care to keep her in the loop. He is also very attentive when it comes to returning calls. I highly recommend him.
