Overall

I had a facial hair transplant and then came back for a chin implant with Dr. Epstein. Basically I'd say that Dr. E. is great and if I could go back and do it all over again I'd definitely go to him. I always felt confident in his abilities and in his staff too. The office is clean and being in Miami, it's a nice place to visit. The price is a bit steep, but I'd rather pay more for something and get it done right first time. I would advise other people to not be put off by it. Basically, I'm glad I went to Dr. E. I have no regrets and am happy with the results.

I had a hair transplant about a year ago with Dr. Epstein after he was recognized as one of the top surgeons for hair transplant in the area. He was very friendly and congenial. He just explained the procedure and didn't put on high pressure. I'm very happy with the results I've gotten. I was pretty much bald and now my own hair grows on top of my head. There is relatively little downtime and the recovery wasn't too bad. The procedure is outpatient, which is no problem. You just come back the next day and they take a look at your scalp and clean up some of the minor bleeding and so forth. After that nature takes its course and you only have to have the stitches removed a couple of weeks later. There's really not much involved beyond the actual procedure. I was surprised that he wasn't the one who did the actual removing and transplanting of hair into your scalp. He has other people do that, but he does map out exactly how he wants it done with some type of crayon on your scalp. He also monitors and oversees every step along the whole process. I'm sure the people he has doing it are highly trained and they're very skilled. I mean the end product came out great. I'm satisfied and I think he and his team did a nice job.

I had HAIR GRAFTS done twice with Dr. Epstein. The first time was 4 years ago and then I had a touch up 2 years ago. Dr. Epstein came highly recommended from another medical professional and I went with him because, first of all, the professionalism and, secondly, the friendly help and support. It’s really a no muss-no fuss procedure except for one important thing: on that first day when you walk out, take the pain medicine, don’t wait. I didn’t cleary understand it because I thought I was still protected by the numbness of my scalp and I didn’t need anything. But the instant you get home, you want to take the pain meds. It was between 6 and 9 months when I was beginning to see new hairs coming out so it’s a gradual thing. And now it’s really not noticeable to anyone but me because I wear bangs and a pageboy. I’m still a patient here 4 years later, doing the LASER LIGHT THERAPY as well, and I’m actually talking with his partner Dr. Barrett about some PEEL TREATMENT.

I don't have any complaints about the hair transplant procedure with Dr. Epstein. It's only been a week and I can see a little bit of a difference. Dr. Epstein explains everything that's going to happen and how it’s going to look. He is excellent. For me, he's one of the best in the field.

I chose Dr. Epstein to perform my Hair Restoration procedure because he was highly recommended through another individual who had done it. When I went in and had my initial consultation with him, he seemed very genuine and honest about the expectations. I felt very comfortable with the way that he explained the procedure. And also, it didn’t appear to me that he was just trying to sell me a product; it seemed like he was trying to convey a realistic expectation. I would highly recommend Dr. Epstein to anyone. He’s a phenomenal doctor, and I was very, very comfortable with the way he treated me.

Back in January of 2012, I had what is called a USC. Other people refer to the procedure as a Hair Transplant. Dr. Epstein specializes in Hair Transplants and has a lot of years of experience. Before I chose him as my surgeon I did a lot of research on him and other surgeons. I looked up different doctors’ experience, what they specialize in and the feedback. I even interviewed other doctors for the procedure, but I felt like Dr. Epstein was a better choice. He got great ratings and people’s reviews of him were always positive. During my initial meeting, I spoke more with the representative and then after Dr. Epstein came in and talked to me. Everything was explained well and I felt comfortable with him. So far I am really, really happy with the results. I don’t think the results are yet complete, but I have seen pretty good results so far. It's already been 4-5 months. My hair is definitely natural-looking. I will let others know to come see Dr. Epstein because of his expertise. He has been working in his field for a while and he is also a professor. He made me, the client, feel comfortable. I am really happy with the results and how the process works. And the staff there is amazing.

my nose was crooked


I got Rhinoplasty because I broke my nose 7 years ago, so I had a little bump and it looked really crooked. I was afraid to have any surgery, but I decided to see a few doctors before I made my decision. Once I met Dr. Epstein I wanted to go with him. He convinced me by the way he showed me the before and after pictures, and he spent a lot of time with me. He also explained all the possibilities and answered all my questions. Compared to the other doctors, it was a big difference. Of course, the surgery wasn’t a pleasant experience, but afterwards the staff and the doctor were excellent. My face is more delicate now because the bump is gone and it looks natural. I was so pleased that I am already recommending 2 other patients to Dr. Epstein.

ecstatic!!!

I started looking up information on the top surgeons in the country and in the world and came across Epstein’s name. I also came across some of his tutorials on YouTube and I watched just about every single one that I could because I was so happy about what he was doing for people, and what the results looked like when he was finished. The other doctor that I went to for my eyebrow transplant posted another doctor’s work as his own and I later found those pictures on the Internet.

But Dr. Epstein was actually wonderful the whole way through my eyebrow reconstruction procedure. I didn’t have any problems with the numbing or the procedure itself. Everything went really smooth. I was ecstatic at the results, especially after how poorly it was done the first time, and I think this time I will have very good results. He contacted me directly after to make sure everything was going well and he answered a couple of questions I had a few days later, so I was really happy and impressed!

Dr. Epstein is great at what he does!

He is definitely talented and gifted; a really special doctor. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my rhinoplasty because even though he did a lot of changes, I still look natural. People keep asking me for his phone number.

you should go to epstein

I had an accident in 2003 and broke my nose. It had been operated on twice previously just to make sure that I could breathe, but it still wasn’t right, I still had a boxer’s nose. I went to Dr. Epstein in Miami and told him what I wanted and what I was looking for. He explained the procedure in detail and explained to me what needed to be done to fix my nose esthetically. The way he approached the problem, and when I explained to him what I wanted, he understood exactly what I was talking about. I asked him what he saw about my nose and he would point out the same things that I saw as well, without me telling him first. It was so assuring to know we were on the same wavelength. I felt he was esthetically connected to me, which was encouraging and made me feel confident.
Anybody who wants to venture down that road should go see Dr. Epstein.

Hair Transplant

I consulted with five different doctors for my hair transplant and I finally narrowed my top choices down to two doctors. Doctor Epstein was one of those top choices. I liked Dr. Epstein

Dr Epstein

Dr. Epstein is probably the best hair transplant surgeon in the country. Im also a physician and I went to the same medical school as Dr. Epstein. I know this area quite well myself, and Id say hes the best in the area, best in this field. He also has a terrific bedside manner and thats very important when youre looking around for potential surgeons. I could not be happier with my results. Im extremely pleased.

very, very happy

I had a hair restoration procedure done a couple of weeks ago in Dr. Epstein?s office in Miami. The process was a lot easier than I expected so for me it was a pleasant surprise. Basically it starts early in the morning around 8:15. There?s a person assigned to you who prepares you for the procedure, and then Dr. Epstein is coming in and out as needed, making decisions and giving directions. So they prepare you, give you some medications so you relax and you?re not nervous or anything like that, and actually they get your order for lunch. They move you to the procedure area and then they go ahead and apply the localized anesthesia and then they start working on doing the procedure and this continues throughout the day. I?ve had other procedures - not regarding hair or anything like that - but the relationship with the doctor is not like the one that I have with Dr. Epstein. He is very understanding and very patient and that actually made the whole procedure a lot easier. The procedure result could take up to 9 months, so we will have to wait until that, but up to now everything that I was told has progressed the way I was told and I?m very, very happy.

Recommend him in a heartbeat

Dr. Epstein listens to you and he’s very patient. He doesn’t rush you or anything like that. He doesn’t tell you, “Oh, you know what, you need this.” Because I asked him, “Do you think I should get this and that?” And he was like, “No, you don’t need it.” So he’s good. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

They are wonderful!

About 5 years I had a hair transplant with Dr Epstein. Which was outstanding. He was referred to me by a friend.

The staff was friendly, fun and I had a great time with them. They are wonderful! Dr Epstein felt like my best friend I just loved him.

He made me feel completely comfortable and he was approachable.

My expectation was Absolutely met! I was not disappointed at all!

I was awake for the procedure under local anesthesia. I did not have any pain. My recovery took weeks. He told me that it would take a while for the transplanted roots to kind of sink in. Maybe about four to six weeks, with only mild pain, more like a stinging sensation.

I mean he gave me some kind of a water solution to put on the areas just so that it would not itch. Within 24 hours that went away. It was easier then going to the dentist and have a tooth filled if you want the truth.

I am very happy with the results and would refer him in a heartbeat. There is no doubt. There is no hesitation whatsoever. He is the first and the only one I would refer. He is the only one I would recommend. He's the best! It is hard to argue with greatness!

He is the type of person that cares about his patients.

I had hair reconstructive surgery a month ago. I found Dr. Epstein online. I had actually gone to New York and met with a doctor there, and came to the conclusion that Dr. Epstein was the doctor I wanted to have the procedure done with. I did a lot of research on Dr. Epstein, and from the interview process alone, I realized he was the right person for what I needed.

Dr. Epstein has a good office. It is very welcoming. The front desk staff is very welcoming and professional. The doctors’ staff is very professional, warm, and inviting.. Just very nice people! The doctor's bedside manner is also very professional. He is the type of person that cares about his patients.

The previous procedures I had (not with Dr. Epstein) had given me a lot of (unwanted) attention. You could see the large plugs and people were aware of my procedure. Everyone was always staring at it. Now, after having the procedure done with Dr. Epstein, it is very natural looking. The surgery met my expectations. The anesthesiologist was fantastic. He did a terrific job. I didn't have any problems, side effects or after effects.

My recovery was very easy; I’d say it lasted two to four days at the most. I didn't have a lot of pain or discomfort. I probably took a few Advil that first night. Other than that, the recovery was very, very easy. The recovery process was beyond my expectations. I thought the recovery would be much longer, and I’d have to wear a hat a long time to hide the procedure, but it didn’t end up that way.

I am very happy with the results; they were beyond my expectations. I didn't actually believe my hairline could look as natural as it does now.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Epstein. Actually, the person that cuts my hair has had a couple of clients who have had procedures done by other doctors, and I told him if anyone is interested in having a correcting hair procedure done, to contact Dr. Epstein.

I'm very grateful and appreciative toward the doctor and his staff. I think they did a terrific job. They are very professional and very welcoming. I can't say enough about them. The procedure Dr. Epstein performed was terrific, compared to the discomfort and hardship I had from procedures done by other doctors.
