Reviews

Reviews

"From the very beginning Dr. Edelstein was committed to helping me and my husband start a family. I live and work an hour away from his office and on more than one occasion he and his nursing staff went above and beyond to ensure I made it back to work in time. Dr. E recognizes understands the financial and emotional stress that fertility treatments put on a family and truly tries to help however he can, even if it’s just an extra phone call to make sure you’re doing alright."

"Dr. Edelstein was very patient and took time to explain diagnosis and possible treatment options. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about a year on our own and nothing seemed to work. If it wasn’t for Dr. Edelstein’s help, I probably would not have been blessed with this current pregnancy."

"Thanks to Dr. Edelstein. I remember the first ultrasound that I had to determine how my baby was doing. Dr Edelstein and his nurse just giggled and said..”it is twins!”. They are now seven and in first grade, loosing teeth, playing sports, and being happy!! Thanks again!!!"
