In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.

I think the world of him and appreciate his thoughtfulness, responsiveness and judgement. Great team too.
Dr. Edelstein is a wonderful, wonderful doctor. He is great with kids, but also with parents. Even if you only see him once a year for a checkup, he remembers who your child is and makes sure to find out what is going on with your child at home and at school, and also with your family. He takes serious things seriously, even calling late at night to check on a sick child, but also is great at letting you know when you do not need to worry without being at all dismissive of your concerns. It feels like we are partners in caring for my child. He really is the model of what you would want in a doctor, I cannot say enough good things about him.
I have the utmost confidence in Dr Edelstein, the pediatrician for my 4 year old son. He is very thorough, gentle, & smart. There is also never a wait for checkups (exception for sick visits). His colleagues are also top notch. I also like that the practice is computerized so they any dr on call is up on my son's medical history.
