Cpt.

After 2-3 visits w/ Epelbaum & given free samples of Cialis which is forbidden for me w/ enlarged prostate, my latest blood test showed an even higher PSA. I called Epelbaum after speaking to some experts using the new & much better technique MRI/ fusion. & being told that prostate biopsy are out of date. I told Epelbaum that I wanted a referral for the MRI/Fusion test, he told to come to his office, when I got there he told that only after he did the useless biopsy would he give me referral for the new method, I told for third time I will not get another biopsy as it was painful & I bleed for a long time. I know that he makes more money doing a worthless test rather than being concerned about my health. He is a great business man but a poor excuse for a doctor.

Signs on the door complaining about insurance reimbursement. He only spends 5 to 10 minutes with me and barely talks. Most people make minimum wage or $10 per hour. In my case, I can't even get a job because of my age and the economy. He is polite to me and maybe an excellent surgeon. Fortunately, I have only seen him for cystitis or UTI's.

Excellent Doctor!

My daughter is only 5 years old and we had had a terrible experience with a previous urologist. Dr. Epelbaum came in and made her feel comfortable, he has a daughter of his own and he knew exactly what to say and do to make her relax. He was very understanding when it came to my concerns and questions and he explained everything in a way that I could understand and feel comfortable with. Overall one of the best experiences I have had with a doctor!
