Ratings for Dr. Ian Epstein
Dr Epstein is a fabulous Doctor. Very professional, warm, friendly and kind. It takes a long time to get an appointment with him, but wait-times are certainly not his fault. He is often running late for clinic appointments but that appears to be because he takes his time answering questions and explaining treatments and procedures throughly. I have never felt rushed by him in clinic. He is happy to answer any and all questions and makes sure I am comfortable with the treatment plan at every turn. He is affable and knowledgeable and if you are lucky enough to be assigned to him as your GI Doc. you will be in great hands.
I have had the pleasure of having Dr Epstein as my GI Doctor since I was diagnosed. He had been a wonderful listener and takes great time to ensure things are going well. He will answer any questions and send referrals for areas he can't help you with. So glad to have gotten him as my GI guy :)
I've seen him several times over the years, and am surprised by some of the reviews here. He has been nothing but professional, friendly, easy-going, calming, and knowledgeable with me. Takes a long time to get an appointment after being referred, but that's not his fault. Out of some of the other local gastroenterologists that I've heard about over the years, I feel very lucky that he's the one I see.
Dr. Epstein has been following me since 2011. He is knowledgeable and yet quick to confir with colleagues and other professionals should he feel it necessary. He is very professional and yet also very warm and friendly. I have some pretty big anxieties about medical procedures and he always takes the time to listen, reassure and even follow up afterwards to see how I am feeling. A real true gem of a specialist. Halifax is very lucky to have him!
He started out great but got too hard to get necessary appts. Research skills really arent good, he somehow convinced another dr that i dont have the disease from my childhood that 2 pediatric nephrologists diagnosed me with after consulting with an expert in texas. Its hard to see someone young get jaded, he really is a sweetheart if you have a common disease.
I've been seeing Dr. Epstein for about 6 years now, and couldn't ask for a better specialist! He's very knowledgeable, very friendly and compassionate. Goes the extra mile to make sure I'm comfortable and helps me understand my condition. He can be a bit tardy but he's very thorough
Worst Dr I have ever seen. My daughter has a feeding tube broken and we have had 4 trips tp emerg with three of those trips supposedly to change the broken feeding tube, he doesn't show up and the one time he did we were put off to another day and he didn't show then either. I know our medical system is in the gutter but this is ridiculous. How is she supposed to get nutrition if she can't get get the tube changed? Frustrating!!!!!
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.
