Dr. Epstein’s main office that he shares with Dr. Bared is located in South Miami, just 20 minutes from Miami International Airport and close to Coconut Grove and Coral Gables. The office contains a fully accredited surgical suite, staffed by his highly experienced and compassionate OR team. He also has privileges at South Miami Hospital, located right across the street from the office. Consultations can also be seen in his NYC office.
While a face to face consultation with the doctor is ideal, in cases of patients traveling from out of town it’s not uncommon to perform the initial consultations electronically and/or by phone. Working with a Patient Advisor, prospective patients may submit photographs of themselves, and through phone conversation, anticipated procedures can be discussed, and computer imaging can be performed by the doctor. In addition, live “face to face” consultations are offered through the internet.
Most rhinoplasty procedures are performed with the patient receiving twilight anesthesia. The patient feels and remembers nothing of the surgery. Patients can also have the surgery under general anesthesia, having it performed in a local surgery center. The type of anesthesia will be decided upon in consultation with the doctor.
In keeping with established policies by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, all fees for plastic surgery procedures are payable in advance. In cases where insurance is applicable, the office can assist with paperwork, but except in unusual circumstances, Dr. Epstein does not work with insurance, rather Dr. Bared is the one who does. The office can also set up patients with a financial plan offered through several lending institutions geared to elective surgical procedures.
South Miami hospital
Dr. Epstein very occasionally performs surgeries at South Miami Hospital, on the same campus where his office is located. US News and World Report in 2012 ranked South Miami Hospital the No. 1 hospital in South Florida, based on a pool of 74 hospitals in the Miami-Ft Lauderdale-West Palm Beach market. The prestigious report placed South Miami Hospital among the best nationwide and among the elite in the state. Nationwide, nearly 5,000 US Hospitals were analyzed to choose the best, and South Miami Hospital is one of only 3 percent of hospitals in America to earn US News national ranking.
The Miami office is open Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Patients are also seen in the NYC office every month. Visits are by appointment only. Call or email the office to schedule an appointment.
