Dr. E is incredibly skilled and talented. His precision and excellence is unmatched. He is passionate, caring, and has a great eye for detail. I selected him because he is specialized in facial plastic surgery, particularly rhinoplasty, and after the consultation I knew he understood my goal and was the right doctor for me. He was always available for any questions or concerns I had. The staff was very professional, attentive, thorough and kind. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed.

He really cares about the outcome of the surgery and it was something that I felt once I stepped into the office that I didn't get from any other office that I've been in. The staff is very professional, very caring. They were always very nice.

I had originally had my Rhinoplasty with a different doctor, but after with that I didn't see any other doctors but Dr. Epstein. I saw everything in his books and online. They were very natural, and he is obviously very qualified. I like his office and everyone has been friendly and attentive to you. He really knows what he is doing. He is very confident. I feel like they have exceeded my expectations. He knows what he was doing, and I felt confident even after having a poor surgery before. I really trusted him to do the job, and I'm happy with the results. I really like Dr. Epstein and his work.

The doctor is apparently very popular and for good reason, when you meet with him you recognize his genious right away. He is not rushed and comes across as genuine. Very well mannered and straight forward and talented. Consequently, be prepared to wait FOREVER no matter what time your appointment is scheduled for. The waiting area is cozy clean and quaint and you will get to know it well!

He's an artist. He has a really good eye and will let you know if something you're thinking about won't look good. He has dozens of before and after photos and his results are amazing. He also has excellent credentials, teaches at the University of Miami, etc. The anastheseologist was also very good. I've come out of anasthesia throwing up, but this time, it was a very pleasant feeling and no queasiness.

Dr. E is one of the best in the world at hair transplants. He does personal consults with his patients to tell them their options as far as hair restoration. He answers all questions and concerns that the patient may have regarding procedures. The patient is always his top priority. In my opinion, Dr. E and his staff are the best in the field. I have had the same procedures done by other doctors in the past and the experience and results do not even come close to the excellent experience I have had with Dr. E. If you want excellent results and a doctor that cares choose Dr. E. Dr. E likes to use his skills to restore the hair of victims of tragic events such as burns, accidents, and domestic violence. I am so thankful for this.

Look at the patient book to evaluate results. You should have help after having both lids done, like a friend or someone from the doc's office. Someone to drive and care for you a couple of days. Take the pain meds and don't suffer needlessly, you can sleep through some of the recovery, but use the eye medicine. Don't put ice, just cool compress. Follow the doctor's order's before surgery, extra suppliments, etc... to reduce bruising and promote healing.

My results speak for themselves, perfect brows that look totally natural. I visited the clinic on my own from overseas and was really nervous, but the Dr. and his staff are so friendly and put me totally at ease. Excellent follow-up service too. I would not hesitate to recommend my Dr. to anyone considering this procedure.

Doctor E has over 20 years of experience and is a facial plastic surgeon- these are very important credentials because your face should only be trusted to someone that specializes in facial plastic surgery

My outcome was possible because of Dr. E and his incredible staff. Cosmetic procedures, particularly of this kind, are an art and a science. His attention to detail, experience, and professionalism combine to give the patient the best possible chance for a good result. I give the doctor and his staff the highest recommendation to anyone considering rhinoplasty.

Board certified plastic surgeon. Has performed over several thousand HT procedures. Conservative in that he saves some hair for future procedures. I achieved good natural results.

An excellent, technical physician with a heart of gold. Dr.Epstein is not only a great technical physician , but is some who genuinely cares about his patients. When I spoke to to his previous patients, I realized he is not only is a great at hair transplants but all other cosmetic surgery procedures, he really is the "Jeff" of all trades. I would recommend Dr.Epstein to anyone in a heart beat.

See my notes above. Dr. E is an expert with noses. He loves noses, and you can tell he loves his work by the results he brings. he's not just another plastic surgeon with a specialty in rhinoplasty. He's got a gift, and I didn't appreciate it until the process was over.

Dr. E was extremely knowledgeable and has great credentials. I hardly had to tell him what I wanted, he seemed to have read my mind and gave me great insight and advice.

Epstein is highly qualified for rhinoplasty. Just look at the before and afters! I also like how he is considered a conservative rhinoplasty surgeon. I was initially nervous because I wasn't sure how familiar he was with Asian noses but he after the computer imaging pictures and my post-surgery results, I am very very happy!

Dr. Epstein did an outstanding job on my eyebrow transplantation surgery. In the planning process, he and his aesthetician suggested an eyebrow shape; I also collected pictures of different shapes I thought would be complementary. Still, I was anxious previous to the surgery about the final decision of what the brow shape would be. Even after the surgery, I was pretty shocked as the difference seemed too dramatic to me. But several months later, the brows grew in beautifully, look natural, and really enhance my facial features. This is a testament to Dr. Epstein's aesthetic judgment, skill, and experience. My friends and family have not even noticed the specific difference. Ten months after the procedure, I feel more beautiful, and wish that I had the procedure performed earlier. I should also mention that I am a medical doctor, so I had many questions and opinions about the technical aspects of the procedure. I was very impressed with the courtesy and responsiveness of the staff to my many, many questions and the quality of their patient education materials. I had some minor complaints about the timing of the surgery during the day, and the pace of the actual procedure day (being on call for half the day until previous cases were finished, then feeling a little too rushed right before the event). All in all, these were minor. The lasting memory I will have of the procedure day is what I see in the mirror each morning. Needless to say, I am very happy with the results.

If it is your first HT operation the pain is not as severe as your 3rd/4th. Dr E and his team make you feel reasured and confident from start to finish. Thats why I have had 3 ops their travelling from the UK.

Dr. Epstein and I went to the same medical school. I have Dr. Epstein to thank for these results. He understands how it impacts one's self confidence to be losing one's hair, especially at an early age like me. I highly recommend him and his staff in South Miami.

I chose Dr. Epstein after looking at the before and after pictures. I should have looked more closely and been more thorough. Something looked a little off in all the facelifts but I wasn't savvy enough to know what was wrong. After having the surgery myself, now I know why they looked off because now I look the same way. I looked better before. I went all in with this doctor. He may be good at hair transplants, but I wouldn't go with him for facial plastic surgery. I think he has a set way of doing facelifts and he tries to apply it to everyone. People's skin and facial structures are different and I don't think he makes any distinction. He's a technician, not an artist, and an artist is what you need for anything you have done to your face. He has a lot of staff to help him keep the client flow going, but when all was said and done, it felt a bit like a meat market.

I chose Dr. Epstein because he came highly recommended by several people in my industry, the Broadway theatre world. I have been wanted this for over 15 years but didn't have the courage. It didn't take courage to choose Dr. Epstein because in my research is was apparent he was the right one for me. ( and I wanted the best) I walked into his office confident and as I am writing this I am smiling like a Cheshire cat. Very pleased with my decision. I just yesterday had my hair transplant by Dr. Epstein, and although I am months away from seeing results I had to share my joy. Everything from my first consultation to my last hair wash was exceptional. It was done with grace and clarity, professionalism but geared toward me individually. I know Dr. Epstein does thousands of procedure a year, but he and his staff made me feel that I was their most important patient. It is really a team environment and all of the staff wants to be there. I really felt that everyone was an artist with a medical tool instead of a paint brush. Trust me, that a great feeling when the canvas is your head. I look forward to seeing the results and returning to this site to give a full update. I give my overall experience 6 out of 5 stars

I must say I was very impressed with Dr. Epstein and the high quality of care he provided in the Hair Transplant Procedure. He and his staff were very polite. They made me feel very comfortable, before, during and after the procedure and they kept me informed on everything.

I read Dr. Epstein’s reviews and looked at his website. That's what made me choose him. When I met with him, he was fantastic. He pretty much knew what we wanted, for me as far as the shape and everything. I mean, he looked at you and even you without having to tell him what it was you wanted he was able to determine what I wanted. I would highly recommend him to others just due to his expertise. He pretty much knows what is good for your face.

I cannot say enough positives about Dr. Epstein. Not only is he an international hair restoration expert but also a very nice man. He is an incredible artist, very kind and patient oriented. I gave him total control over the shape and number of hairs for my eyebrow transplant. His artistry is amazing. I could have gone anywhere for this procedure but did my research and choose the best!

He is a great doctor! The staff is awesome to name a few Cindy,Susie, cynthia, danny, and cannot spell the others guys name but he is always watching over me making sure I use sunblock so I do not ruin my skin. He makes me smile! They are always there to hold your hand. I feel kinda bad not knowing each and everyone's name to mention. However, the ones I come in contact with is all very kind. You can tell they are all very close. I can go on about them. I know my husband and I chose the best place.

I had the Hair Graft procedure done on May 30 in New York City. I found out about the procedure and Dr. Epstein online. My look always bothered me and I never considered a solution because I never thought one existed. But once I found out about it I didn't hesitate to do something about it. I felt comfortable.
