In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Epstein is a very sharp and knowldegable doctor. However, she is very difficult to work with. She comes across as a doctor who thinks she knows your child better than you. At times she can be quite abrasive. When discussing interventions with her, she doesn't want input from the parents. I have found this causes delays/interuptions in treatment/therapy and creates extra causes of frustration. If you are not forced to use her, go somewhere else.
I took my son, who has some behavioral problems, to see Dr. Robin Epstein. She was incredibly rude and overbearing. A test was given to my son and she told me she thought my son guessed on most of the test and got pretty lucky and that he shouldve scored lower. I was in the room and he actually missed some questions he knew not the other way around. She told me my son had bad eye contact among some other observations that I didnt agree with. When I would tell her he doesnt have problems with eye contact or the other things she observed she would disregard what I said as if I was ignorant and had no idea what I was talking about or say things to me as if I was in denial. I might not be an M.D. but I know my son and what he is or isnt capable of. All she did was refer us to other places so we would no longer be their problem. They referred us to speech and language and Occupational Therapy (where they teach you how to brush your teeth and get dressed etc.). My son was already receiving speech and language services and was in no need of Occupational Therapy. We went to the Occupational Therapy evaluation and were declined services because he didn't qualify, he didn't need it. Which shouldnt she already have known that?I called back for a referral for some kind of Behavioral Therapy and they told me to "call my insurance see where I'm covered and call them backSo I'm not sure what Dr. Epstein gets paid for but she doesn't deserve any of it.I tried for 2 years to get into this place thinking I would get help for my son and after I finally did get in, I've never felt further from help. I don't know what to do and where to go. This office is a joke, a BIG waste of time and energy and they don't have your childrens best interest at heart.... they just want your money and then they want you out of their hair.
after my son's regular pediatrician spent so little time with my son and stalled in diagnosing anything related to what were becoming obvious social and speech problems, Dr. Steinberg-Epstein was a breath of fresh air!! She was kind and patient with my wife and me, spent an extraordinary amount of time with my son, and astutely figured out my son's problems. With the proper diagnosis and her strong and skillful advocation for services, our son has been doing so much better. Perhaps on a certain level we did not want to face the fact that our son has autism, but Dr. Epstein was both direct and understanding of our concerns. We would recommend her to anyone!!
Our son who has multiple issues due to his prematurity was referred to Dr. Epstein. Not only did she within one hour DX our son with as she said, Straight up Autism. She also was rude to me and my husband various times. My son is blind in one eye and has jerky eye movement and she claimed he did not make good eye contact from Autism not from low vision difficulties. She then proceeded to take off her glasses and cover one eye and looked at us and said, SEE, I can give you straight eye contact. That was just rude. I know for a fact you can not DX in one hour. It takes several testing times to get an accurate picture. We have since sent our son to someone else for a second opinion who did multiple testing on him and did give him a DX of PDD-NOS mainly so that he could receive services. Yes, he has issues, but no one should ever jump to conclusions when it comes to diagnosing a child. Parents just be careful when using this doctor.
