Not patient enough with child

She's very smart and possibly good at her job but did not have patience with a depressed grumpy kid who refused to talk. I could see her frustrated that my kid wouldn't open up to her and I didn't think that was helpful to the kid at all.

Don't waste your tine

Check her reviews before scheduling an appointment. I didn't, and paid the price. She wasted my time and nerves. She's very ingenuine and rude! Stay away if you care about your health. Also check out Healthgrades.com; there are more negative reviews about her... or you can just go there and see for yourself! I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!

Terrible practitioner

"Dr." Edelstein is condescending, pompous and downright rude! She didn't seem to care about my history at all, nor did she seem genuinely interested in helping me. My opinions or experience didn't matter to her at all, and she stubbornly tried to push meds without giving much details about them. I felt rushed and unwelcome. Most horrible doctor I've ever been to!

The worst

She only sees patients for literally 5 minutes every few months. She has no idea how they're really doing, nor does she care. She told me she didn't like the type of psychiatry where the doctor merely prescribes meds. She would rather be a psychotherapist, but is terrible with patient bedside manner, so to speak. She assumes more than she listens and is very inappropriate at times... She makes people feel worse! I've heard others in the waiting room trash talking too... Shouldn't be practicing!
