Dr. Edelstein is an excellent doctor. I went to him for a second opinion and was pleasantly surprised at how thoroughhe was in his examination and how he took extra time to explain everything to me. While I only have positive things to say about Dr. Edelstein, his office staff in a complete disaster and were terrible with following up, submitting insurance information and seemed dazed and confused anytime i would speak to anyone there.

He's very good but I had to pay for the visit because he does not participate in my plan, yet everyone else in the office does!! I may be going back to see one of his partners who participates in my Aetna PPO Gold Plus!

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.
