It was been a year since Dr. Edelman completed the surgery on me to stop my hands from sweating. What a year it has been! I have grown leaps and bounds socially and emotionally. I don't have to worry about my sweaty hands anymore. I have Dr. Edelman to thank for this! He was very professional, very caring, and simply an excellent surgeon! I could not be more pleased being under his care, and I will be forever grateful for it. Words really can't express how much I am appreciative, but this review will have to do. Thank you so much Dr. Edelman for changing my life for the better!

I had hernia surgery with Dr. Edelman in March, and everything went absolutely perfect. Aside from being a fine surgeon, Dr. Edelman treats his patients with genuine care, explains the procedure in clear, simple terms, and does not try to force a decision on the patient. You can't help but trust this doctor and go into surgery with full confidence in a positive outcome. The office staff is wonderful--very helpful, knowledgeable, always willing to answer questions in a friendly manner. I could not be happier with my choice of surgeon and his office.
