Ratings for Dr. David M. Epstein
I was having right knee pain and buckling and could no longer do any physical activity. Dr. Epstein was able to do an exam and identified a potential meniscus tear. Once this was confirmed via MRI, surgery was scheduled. The day of surgery went very smoothly. Dr. Epstein and his staff are very professional and made me feel extremely comfortable during and after the surgery. My procedure was done in the morning and I was standing in the afternoon. I did not experience any pain after surgery and did not fill my pain medicine prescription. By Day 3, I started rehab on the exercise bike. I was back to full function by week 4. Thank you Dr. Epstein for getting me back to full function!! I couldn’t be happier.
I am writing to express how impressed I was with Dr. David Epstein care during my rotator cuff repairs. With each injury (1 to each shoulder) he was very thorough in his diagnostics procedures and able to clearly explain my problem, tell me the options and he walked me through the surgical procedures. He showed great confidence in achieving his surgical goals (1 of my should would probably never be a 100%) and shared his success rate for such a surgery when I asked. Dr. Epstein was always attentive in my follow up visits, always answering my question and followed me with care through my discharge.
I was hoping stem cells would fix my shoulder, but Dr. Epstein made a simple and elegant case for surgery while not being dismissive of my concerns. He was frank and kind and answered all of my questions all of the time. While I certainly did not want surgery, I am now very happy that I had it. I can get my arm around my guitar again, my range of motion is excellent and I have symmetry between my arms, something I thought would never happen again! I hope to God I never need another orthopedic surgery, but I know where to go if I do!
Went in for rotator cuff surgery. Explained it well. Absolutely no pain after the surgery. Did not have to take even an aspirin. This doctor rates high in my book and I would have no problem recommending him.
Dr. Epstein performed surgery on fractured ankle, inserting plate and screws. Follow up was excellent and thorough. It is now 3 months after surgery and am able to function with little discomfort. All Physical Therapists remarked on the "beautiful" surgery, and stated I was ahead of the curve on recovery. I'm happy that my family physician recommended Tri-County Orthopedics while I was in the emergency room. Dr. Epstein is personable, and takes time to give practical advice on how to cope with after surgery necessities.
