Dr. Edelstein was very caring and thoughtful about how to go about finding the proper solution for a chronic sinus problem. I feel very hopeful for the first time that this problem can be solved & he will continue to work with me until it is resolved.
It was fine....I was looking for second opinion.
efficient, thorough--took an extended amount of time very late in the day despite a busy morning with multiple surgeries.
Extremely knowledgeable and professional.
Dr. Edelstein and his office staff are nothing but superior. After filling out forms for my first visit, I was immediately taken for an extensive hearing test with the audiologist. Once finished, I waited only 5 minutes for Dr. E. He was very personable, asked A LOT of questions, sincerely listened to my answers, and is exceptionally sensitive to musicians and their needs.
He seems very knowledgeable.
Staff was very accommodating and went above and beyond normal expectations to try to work out some confusion with my insurance company. Dr. Edelstein himself was very attentive. He actually listened to my concerns, spent significant time with me, and didn't push me to surgery. I actually came in because I believed I needed surgery, and I may still, but he said that we should address my concerns methodically to make sure we can't fix the problem another way before we go the surgical route. If I do end up needing surgery, I will feel very comfortable having him do it.
I hope he can help me!!!!
Very thorough. A bit awkward socially, he has a tendency to look away when listening. Also, he pushed for a CT Scan and mitigated the radiation risk of it. He also did not offer the most technologically advanced surgical procedure. All this being said, I DO definitely recommend him, and may actually go back to him. I believe there are better options for my specific condition but I feel very confident in his overall abilities.
Really comforting and great. Seemed very competent and expert. The complications with insurance were the only glitch I had to resolve.
Super professional and super efficent. I have seen Dr. Edelstein on several occasions and highly recommend him. He offers detailed explanations on what he prescribes for you and why.
Felt like great working atmosphere in his office. Everybody was friendly and attentative.
very pleased with how thorough he was.
Presented a viable diagnosis, answered inquiries, did not feel like a "rushed" visit and pursued follow-up. As a first appointment, excellent. Office help excellent and friendly. Will be able to make better determination on subsequent appointments.
Very nice personal service, short wait time & great diagnosis.
He was very nice, knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend this doctor.
