5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I have been to Dr. Epstein for more than one procedure in the past 14 yrs, including breast augmentation, septoplasty and rhinoplasty, and returned to his office for Botox over the years as well. I live in the city where I could probably find other doctors who are skilled and experienced, but Dr Epstein and his entire staff are top-notch and go way above and beyond what I would expect and have...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
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!!!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
After waiting 15 years, I finally decided to get BA. I went to few consultations and decided that Dr. Epstein was the best choice. He was also recommended to me by a family member who had him for her BA. He is very professional and carrying. He listens and explains everything step by step. He doesn't talk over you like one of the doctors I went too for consultation. He truly cares about your...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Dr. Epstein is an amazing doctor that I would recommend to anyone. He made me feel so at ease and was there every step of the way. His bedside manner was impeccable; it is so obvious that he really cares about each and every patient. I love my new chest and it's all thanks to him!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
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!!
5 out of 5 stars Body Lift
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.
5 out of 5 stars Natrelle Breast Implants
I have entertained the thought of getting breast implants for many years. However never actually thought it would happen. After speaking with my husband about it being something I wanted for myself he said although he does not think I need it he would support me in my decision but thinks I am beautiful either way. I am 5'6 , 127 lbs and am 26 years old. I found a doctor I am comfortable...
5 out of 5 stars Body Lift
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.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
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!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
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.
From one-on-one personalized consultations to attentive follow-up care, Dr. Epstein is actively involved in every facet of your treatment. His primary objective is your complete satisfaction and to ensure that you receive the kind of focused attention you deserve.
