Dr Epstein has a very pleasant and calm manner. She explains everything very clearly and gave my daughter the very best of care. She appreciates that parents worry when their child has to undergo a hospital procedure but I felt reassured by her high levels of professionalism and expertise. I am very glad that we chose Dr Epstein and would highly recommend her.

Dr Epstein is impressive. She is beautifully articulate, reassuring, warm, kind and above all she exudes calm. She made the complex simple and was never condescending. She was authentically caring and made us feel reassured. The difference that she made to my mental and emotional state in such a short time was considerable and I consider myself hugely fortunate to have found her during my hours of online searching.
