Dr. Epstein was my doctor for over 30 years. Was so surprised to get a phone call to say he was no longer at Mercy and my Friday appointment!! When I called back, they could only say that he was no longer at Mercy. He had joined Mercy. I'm hoping he has retired and 'let go'. I will seek to find him. He did my lasik years ago.
I have been seeing Dr. Epstein for over 25 years. Originally I came to him for eye surgery to correct my vision which was 20/500 in one eye and 20/600 in the other. After two surgeries (radial karetonomy/sp? and Laser), I am almost 20/20 (just need glasses to read from time to time). He also helped me with dry eye. He certainly was a God-send to me, and I will continue to have him as my doctor.
My Lasik surgery was one of the best things I've done for myself.
