Dr. Epstein is one of the BEST doctors at Vanderbilt. I feel very blessed that he is my diabetes doctor. Every time he tells me to change something with my medication it works perfectly. He is a brilliant doctor!!!

Good M.D.
Patient | September 20, 2018

I have told many people of my satisfaction and recommended two patients. to this practice.
Patient | September 19, 2018

I really like the provider. He was impressed that I keep a record of all procedures and surgeries and had it with me.
Patient | September 12, 2018

Doctor was very nice to get me samples of my diabetic pens.
Patient | September 12, 2018

Dismissed lab results from another provider. He is way out of the loop on my specific health concerns. It was a complete and total waste of my time & money. It would have been laughable if not for that.
Patient | September 12, 2018

All good.....

Dr. Epstein has been more invested in helping me feel better than any other dr. I've seen.
Patient | August 22, 2018

Dr Epstein is a credit to your facility.
Patient | August 20, 2018

I'm an RN and I really appreciate the communication with Dr. Epstein.
Patient | July 24, 2018

Very thoughtful . Not many doctors have thoughts after the visit and call you on Sunday afternoon
Patient | July 22, 2018

I am probably changing diabetes care practitioner to someone else.
Patient | July 17, 2018

He practices holistic medicine. Dr. Epstein shows concern for not just how his specialty effects your health but your entire well being. I have had one of the more pleasurable medical experiences due to his professionalism and through style of practicing medicine.
Patient | July 17, 2018

Really did like Dr. Epstein since this was my first time seeing him...
Patient | July 9, 2018

I came to doctor appointment with questions about thyroid problem (my health care provider recommended appointment due to blood work and other symptoms). I left there feeling I had wasted my time and money and unsatisfied. I have other doctors at Vanderbilt that I am extremely satisfied with my healthcare with them.
Patient | June 26, 2018

I think Dr. Epstein is an amazing doctor. He is brilliant. He has called me after hours when I sent a message through the Vanderbilt system asking him a question.
Patient | June 14, 2018

Excellent Service
Patient | June 2, 2018

Dr. Epstein seems has always tried to look at my overall health, but last week, he seemed to neglect my reason for being in his office, diabetes. I didn't do a good job of patient, either. I was sick with strep and didn't realize it and felt very foggy. I should have expanded the discussion about the decrease in my diabetes med.
Patient | May 21, 2018

For a doctor visit it is always a pleasant experience.
Patient | May 9, 2018

Dr. Epstein is very knowledgable especially about medications and clearly keeps current with latest treatments for diabetes. I think he may be on the spectrum so little eye contact but i feel he knows his "stuff" and I don't need hand holding when it comes to my meds.
Patient | April 17, 2018

Care provider allowed me to record his explanation of my problem so I would be able to explain it to my spouse later that evening. The explanation was complicated and I didn't feel I could remember everything he said.
Patient | April 16, 2018

I was very impressed by his concern and his practicality.
Patient | April 10, 2018

Dr. Epstein is great.

Dr. Epstien is wonderful. I've seen 2 other Dr's reguarding my health issue. He's the only one that got it right.
Patient | February 28, 2018

Dr. Epstein is a very caring & concern dr. I appreciate him very much for that.
Patient | February 14, 2018

Dr. Epstein is tops in my book!
Patient | February 12, 2018

Dr. Epstein did an excellent job treating me & my condition.
Patient | January 27, 2018

I really like Dr. Epstein. He has helped me tremendously. I feel better than I have in ages. My A1C is under 7 for the first time in years. I have even lost some weight.
Patient | December 7, 2017

I felt extremely dismissed and that the practice and Dr Epstein had no interest in diagnosing or treating me.
Patient | December 7, 2017

Good experience. Took the time to listen.
Patient | December 7, 2017

Dr. Epstein doesn't seem to understand how to analyze pump technology read outs resulting in repeat non-productive appointments.
Patient | December 4, 2017

Dr. Epstein is the most thorough, caring, & kind provider I have ever seen in my lifetime.
Patient | November 10, 2017

This physician is excellent. He listens to the patient and includes them in the plan of care. He instills great confidence in him as a medical provider.
Patient | November 9, 2017

Always good.
Patient | October 18, 2017

Dr. Epstein is a brilliant doctor. I really appreciate that he is on the cutting edge when it comes to new medications and information about diabetes. I also appreciate that when he changed my thyroid medication he listened to me when I wanted him to give me the previous dosage. When I had several low blood sugar readings Dr. Epstein called me in the evening to make sure I was okay. I don't know many doctors that would check on your after hours like that. Dr. Epstein genuinely cares about his patients.
