    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 a highly experienced paediatric gastroenterologist, and offers a great, balanced and clinically focused opinion. She will only undertake invasive investigations such as endoscopy if it is really needed, which is so comforting for patients and referrers like myself. I know my patients are in safe hands and will get a great opinion from her.
