Dr. Epstein is amazing!! As soon as I met him during our consultation I knew I wanted to go with him. When my husband joined me at pre-op appt., he felt the same way. He answered all of our questions and more! He listened to everything I wanted and I couldn't be happier with the results. He was wonderful the morning of surgery as we were a little frazzled having been stuck in traffic for 2 hours.... laughed it off and calmed me down! Even during our follow-up appts., he was great and made what could have been an uncomfortable situation with my two small girls, very comfortable. I will only go to Dr. Epstein if I have any other procedures. Totally worth the drive and time!!

Wonderful. Great bedside manner, truly concerned about his patients. Excellent surgeon. I'm so glad I chose him to do my surgery. His office staff and nurse are as wonderful and competent as he is.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Epstein, his nurse Erin and all of the staff. I was so scared to go under and have the surgery... They were kind and supportive the entire time. They made me feel as comfortable as possible. Dr. Epstein did an AMAZING job. I had an extended tummy tuck and lipo on my legs. True transformation and its only been 4 weeks. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

I recently had a lower body lift and liposuction by Dr Epstein and I cannot say enough about the professionalism he and his staff have shown. He is an excellent surgeon and I would recommend him to anybody considering plastic surgery. I knew I was in good hands and he and his staff have the very special ability to make you feel at ease. The office is very clean and comfortable and I felt at ease with him immediately. I was followed up very carefully, he kept me overnight and pain was well taken care of through medication. The overnight facility was tranquil and well staffed, i wanted for nothing and rested well. He really knows what he is doing.My scars are flat and smooth and healing well. My hat goes off to you Dr Epstein! I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

He was recommended by my sister. Dr. Epstein and his office staff are very professional. Dr. Epstein's work is EXACTLY what I wanted - the perfect size, look, etc. I highly recommend him. I feel the price is pretty reasonable too. The only negative was the pain was pretty rough for the first few weeks but by 2 months later I was pretty much back to normal - in time for summer!

He was a great doctor and took great care of me after my surgery. If I needed anything they would take me in a second. I didn't have any complications and they were always there when I did have a question.

I felt like Dr Epstein, and his very helpful, courteous staff, made me feel like I was the only patient there. They gave me such great care, and answered all my questions, I felt right at home. I chose Dr Epstein, because of people who had previous surgery, and from how comfortable I felt with him and his staff at the initial consultation. I would recommend him to anyone for surgery.

I felt as though I did extensive research in my quest for someone to improve my sun damage and facial wrinkles. After visiting many dermatologists and plastic surgeons, I was given Dr. Epstein's name from a friend who had recently experienced Dot laser therapy in his office; because of the positive experience and confidence I took home w/me from my initial visit w/him, I researched no more...he was frank, thorough, professional, no arrogance,didn't "push" for me to make an immediate decision, and his staff couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly.

I was 54 when I started the procedures and there was no age issue then. I am just as healthy now. As far as the payment, it is paid in full up front before surgery. There was no process involed. If you are not paid up, you are not operated on.
