I have been a patient of Dr. Edelstein for twenty (20) yrs. I contracted Glaucoma during treatment for Myasthinia Gravis that left me with a permanent condition. Dr. E. performed three laser treatments and numerous visits to stabilize and treat my condition. His professionalism and engaging nature have directly contributed to my retaining my eyesight; with no visual loss in these 20 yrs. He is always available help and advice. He is an absolute credit to his profession.
Worst doctor and worst staff that I have ever met. I made an appointment for my two daughters (a 6-months old and a 3-year old) to see an ophthalmologist and instead the staff booked me for a regular pediatrician. I show up with my two girls and wait in the waiting room for 20-30 minutes before a receptionist asked me for immunization records. I said that I made an appt to see an ophthalmologist and they made me feel stupid that I showed up for a pediatrician. I called the call center (all appts made through main switch) they said to see dr. Edelstein. I went upstairs to speak to dr. Edelstein and... he turned me down. I was there with my two screaming daughters and instead of an appt I got a nasty attitude from this dr. and his staff. The call center never even apologized for their mistake. People: do not see this doctor. He does not care about his patients.
