When it comes to taking care of your health, only the best will do, and since many medical issues are first dealt with by a general practitioner, it’s ideal to make an appointment with a top doc.

Long Islanders voted Dr. David Edelson, M.D., F.A.C.P., of HealthBridge – Great Neck the Best General Practitioner on Long Island in the 2019 Bethpage Best of Long Island contest.

When it comes to your overall health, Dr. Edelson cares like no other physician on Long Island. The founder and medical director of HealthBridge in Great Neck, Dr. Edelson is widely recognized as one of the nation’s top weight loss experts. He was listed in NY Magazines’ “Best Doctors of 2014″ issue, and was also selected for the prestigious Castle Connolly Top Regional Doctors award.

He is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Bariatric Medicine, is a two time recipient of the Faculty Teaching Award at LIJ Medical Center, and was awarded Fellowship in the American College of Physicians. He has published independent research in the Journal of the American Diabetes Association as well as the journal Nutrition, and has been featured in articles in The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, LA Times, Women’s Day as well as many others.

“If you’re not familiar with the concept of concierge medicine and the benefits for you as a patient, you should be,” said one patient of HealthBridge. “This is a different kind of practice where you can get truly personal care. I’ve had experience with Dr. Klein and now Dr. Edelson. These are excellent, thorough and knowledgable doctors. They spend a long time with you in visits. They really care. The nurses and office staff are all top notch. This is the most helpful medical practice I’ve been to in my nearly six decades on this planet. They even have an on-site full gym.”
