All went well, the wait wasn't long and the Doctor was great. Didn't rush me and was very thorough. The only negative thing was that I had to fill out a form that was already completed previously on Zocdoc. Minor gripe really. I would highly recommend Dr Edelstein.

Excellent doctor and excellent visit. His front desk girls are amazing. My mother needed an injection that day and they called her insurance and had the injection approved within 15 minutes! Though there is a short wait to see the doctor,that is because he actually takes his time with patients and will take his time with you too. Highly recommend.

Dr. Edelstein was very personable and extremely knowledgeable. He put me at ease the moment I stepped into his examing room. I was in pain from an injury to my finger and he was empathetic to my discomfort. He diagnosed whatwas wrong immediately and had them make the splint that I needed right in his office. That was a separate therapy practice but I would highly recommend them as well. Overall a very good experience for a not so good problem I had.
