Have you seen Dr. Ellen Epstein?
August 9th, 2017
Exceptional. Dr. Epstein took the time to explain why my asthma was worse and showed me how to use my inhaler correctly, which made the difference. I wasn’t getting the medicine at all. She spend a lot of time trying to figure out what triggers made my asthma worse and was able to give me specific instructions about things I could do at home which really helped. Great bedside manner and best of all always accessible for my questions. Will be bringing my son to see her also. Wish all my doctors were as competent and compassionate

Dr. Epstein takes a hands-on approach with patients. She is always there, even when I come in for an allergy shot. If there is any question about whether I should get the shot, she evaluates me first. This is so different than my previous allergist. I have asthma and sometimes it is not under great control. She always adjusts my medication. The receptionist is great. I can always reach someone by phone and they have always been very accommodating with my schedule and getting an appointment. It's been a pleasure dealing with this doctor and this office.

My son was seen by Dr. Epstein for hives. He had been seen by his pediatrician and dermatologist who referred us to the doctor. When I called I was quite upset as he was breaking out and nothing seemed to work. The receptionist was great, calmed me down and immediately gave me an appointment the same day! She did tell me that she was fitting him in the schedule and I should be patient. I agreed to that. I did have to wait but it was well worth it. The doctor spent a lot of time trying to figure out what might have caused the hives. After testing, she determined it was soy and my son has been fine since. I did spend a lot of time in the office, but that was because the doctor spend a lot of time with us. I have been back for other allergy problems and I have been very happy with this office. It is rare these days to be able to see the same doctor every visit and especially not a nurse practitioner or PA every time you have an appointment. I would wait to see Dr. Epstein any time. Well worth the visit!
December 13th, 2014Not a bone of compassion
Wasted 2 visits at 7 am on saturdays. Nothing was done for my son. Uninformative doctor and staff. The 4 yo had to wake up at 6 am and missed his piano lessons twice to be sent home twice because they never informed us properly on meds not to take prior and told us to give him singular when an. ENT recommended against it. Spoke to the Dr and she was not a compassionate health professional. Who makes a 4 yo wake up at 6 am on a cold 37 F weather to see her and only turn him away twice due to improper instructions and therefore could not perform the tests on him. Do not go to see this woman !

I have been seeing Dr. Ellen Epstein for the past three years. I am on allergy shots and they have definitely made a difference in my symptoms. I hardly need any more allergy medication. Dr. Epstein explained what my options were and I decided to try allergy injections. She was very honest about the time committment and the alternatives. In fact, when she explained the procedure, she encouraged me to think about it and get back to her. I really appreciated the way she handled it. In the past, I was put on shots by another allergist, but I really didn't know what i was getting into. She is also very different than the other allergist that I saw. She stays involved in your case and is always present when I get my shots. I most definitely reccommend Dr. Ellen Epstein

I would highly reccommend Dr. Ellen Epstein as an allergist. She is very smart and cares about her patients. Her office staff is friendly and concerned and I imagine she would not tolerate anything else as she genuinely cares about her patients. She treated me for allergies with allergy shots and as she told me it would take about a year to feel better. Well, I decided to be patient and I cannot believe how much better I feel. I hardly need to take an antihistamine anymore! I have recommended her to my coworker who also had severe allergies and she was just as satisfied. She also is very nice and makes it a point to connect with her patients- even if I just come in for a shot. She always sticks her head in to say hello. I reccommend her highly.

Dr. Epstein always greets patients with a warm "hello,how are you doing?" whether you are in the office area or the waiting room. She gets to know her patients and is very caring about how the life around them can affect their ailments. I have been going to her office now for ten years and consider just part of life's routine. An allergist can make a difference in how you feel each day of your life.
