Dr. Ian Epstein's Ratings
I agree that he was very confrontational and know it all. he quick to make judgment and does not investigate, easily passes off your issues. Basically if your not dying he thinks you have IBS. he is young but seems to be jaded already. Would not recommend him to anybody.
A wonderful physician in all aspects! Knows his stuff, yet is ready to say when he needs to get more details or refer to a specialist. One of the least self-centered people I know, and eager to have the patient as an active participant in their own care. The health care system certainly has it's challenges, but Dr. Ian gives me hope that caring people like him will help "make it better".
Very aloof, immature and egotistical. Not to mention quite ignorant if you ask the same question twice. Gets quite defensive when questioned. He tried to use fear mongering to deter me from having the scope put down to investigate my symptoms. When he described the risks of having this procedure done, I asked him how many of his patients might any of these negative side effects happened too and he wouldn't answer me. After what I have been through this past year, I have zero tolerance for rude people. The medical system is broken. I liken it to a third world country. 1-2 year wait times for a scope is unacceptable. I wonder if these doctors make their family member's wait so long. What goes around in life comes around.
Really excellent GI doctor who is actually concerned about patient well-being. He always takes the time to make sure all concerns are discussed, even if it means he has to work late! I am very lucky to be his patient.
