“I have taken my son (who is on the spectrum) to several nuerologists in the area, including Drs. Edelstein and Pearl. We saw them for a rare and aggressive type of elipepsy before the autism diagnosis. Dr. Edelstein has a wonderful manner, is very optimistic in the face uncertainty, and most of all is unbelievably available given doctors these days — even gives her personal cell out to patients (we have called it several times on weekend and nights and she always answers). I found Dr. Pearl to be a brilliant nuerologist, even compared to other very smart neurologists. We came to him because nothing was working to help with my son’s seizures (described by Edelstein as the pediatric neurologist that other neurologists send their kids to). I found Dr. Pearl to be someone who has a lot of knowledge about newer (though not necessarily better) medications and treatments – we went to him because we wanted something out of the ordinary since no typical treatments were working. He was either very brilliant or we were very lucky (probably both) in that he put us on an unusual and very aggressive treatment that no other doctor had suggested and it managed to finally control my son’s seizures. I recommend both, though I went with seizure issues — but they are very different doctors. We still see both, because Edelstein involves almost no wait.” by Kevin Donahue
