Specialties

Dr. Mark D Epstein has the following 3 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Breast Augmentation

As an anesthesiologist, I have provided anesthesia for many breast augmentation procedures and have had the opportunity to observe many different surgeons. For many years I had considered having breast augmentation but kept putting it off since I have so little free time ( busy working mom). I did much research prior to choosing my surgeon. As a physician, I was lucky enough to be able to ask nurses and doctors who they would recommend for the procedure. Dr Epstein was highly recommended by all who knew him, including another plastic surgeon. I was excited to hear about the 24 hour recovery as well as his excellent surgical skills. My procedure went perfectly -I was home in a few hours with no pain and by the evening I was feeling back to normal. The following day I went to all of my children’s activities with very slight discomfort which was alleviated with ibuprofen. I was able to go to work as usual on Monday (procedure was on Saturday). I am very happy with my results and I highly recommend Dr. Epstein .

48years old and looking fabulous

I have wanted breast augmentation since I was in my 20’s, but was so afraid of the pain and recovery. I had the 24 hour recovery surgery by Dr.Epstein and was amazed that I was able to lift my arms above my head in the recovery room. I am a hairstylist , had surgery Wednesday and was at back to work on Friday. No pain killers just some Ibuprofen. My breasts were asymmetrical and Dr. Epstein meticulously corrected it by using two different size implants. They are beautifully even now! The recovery recipe that was given to me was easy and worked perfectly. I went back to boxing 4 weeks after my surgery and I feel great. I wish I would have done it sooner. I highly recommend Dr. Epstein. I did a lot of research and he is truly the only doctor out there that does this 24 hour recovery surgery. His staff is wonderful and very helpful.

47 with extreme asymmetrical breasts

I lived with extreme asymmetrical breasts for 47 years. After consults with a few Plastic Surgeons in my area - I chose Dr Epstein and his One Day Recovery. To bring me to asymmetry we went with round gummies in two diff sizes and a lolypop lift on one side. I was very surprised right after waking up from the anesthesia, I was able to lift both arms above my head. I had NO pain - NONE EVER! Of course I was sore but I was able to get dressed and do some things around the house. I chose to take a week off from work to rest. Dr Epstein is very professional - he does not make you feel rushed - he will give you all the time you need to review your options and answer your questions. He gives his patients his personal cell phone number and he promptly returns texts! So if you are considering having a procedure done - I totally recommend Dr Epstein and his friendly staff!

One of my best decisions

Dr. Epstein and his staff make the whole process so easy and stress free. They were constantly there to answer any questions or concerns I had. Out of all the Drs I met with, Dr Epstein made me feel the most comfortable and I felt like he was the most knowledgeable. He took all different measurements to make sure I not only looked proportionate and that we didnt put in too big of an implant that it would stretch my skin too much. The surgery was an hr long and I was in recovery for about 45 minutes. That same day I was able to lift my arms, shower, cook and do light cleaning. I went to work the next day, definitely a 24 Hour Recovery, AND I didn't need to take any pain medication. A little sore but definitely not in pain. Dr Epstein and his staff followed up with me post surgery and would call to see how I was feeling, even when I had a question late at night Dr Epstein was able to be reached to answer my questions. Thank you so much Dr Epstein
