Who is Abortionist Solomon Epstein?

Operation Rescue, has accused Solomon Epstein of being involved in the death of an abortion patient from Queens.

Dr. Epstein has denied this charge to OR and has sent this blog a message also denying he was involved. Dr. Epstein requested that I remove this entire “thread” from my blog and issue an apology. As I stated in the thread, we did not know who was involved in the death of that abortion patient , and I reported that Operation Rescue was accusing Epstein, not this blog. For that matter we are removing the story of the woman’s death from this “thread” and although I can understand why the “good” doc would want to intimidate me into “removing the entire thread”, this blog will leave up the information which DOES publicly document Dr. Solomon Epstein’s past records.

That being said, there is plenty of public information relating to abortionist Solomon Epstein. He may not like the fact that we are publicizing this – but – he needs to take that issue up with the State of New York Medical Board and the media- because that is where we have obtained our information.

In fact in a previous disciplinary action by the State of New York he was charged with negligence, incompetance, and failure to maintain records. For a full and accurate account of the case you can Read the public disciplinary report Here

Let’s go back in time and see just what kind of Doc this abortionist was?

In 2000, According to the The Binghamton Press In an article entitled: Abortion clinic closes temporarily
Health department: Doctor needed on site for emergency care 4/28/2000

An abortion clinic that deals primarily with second-trimester abortions will close temporarily starting today as its doctor tries to abide by an order from the state Department of Health.

Dr. Salomon N. Epstein, who sees clients two days a week at his clinic at 147 Front St., Binghamton, said the health department has ordered him to have a doctor available at the clinic every day.

If I don’t have adequate back-up for emergency care, they will close (the clinic) down,” he said. “I am trying to find a doctor who is acceptable to the state.

Epstein said he lives in New York City and works in Binghamton on Wednesdays and Thursdays. But, he added, an assistant works in the office six days a week to answer phone calls and contact him in case of an emergency.

This (requirement) is something new,” said Epstein, who said he has operated the same way for 19 years. He said he is hopeful he will find another doctor. “If I don’t find a doctor to back me up, I’ll have to leave Binghamton,” he said.

The other abortion clinic in Broome County, Southern Tier Women’s Services, is unaffected.

Women’s Services deals primarily with first-trimester abortions.

Margaret Johnston, director of Women’s Services, issued this statement Thursday night:

“It is my understanding that Dr. Salomon Epstein closed his office in Binghamton as part of a negotiation settlement with the New York State Department of Health … Naturally, we regret the loss of a colleague dedicated to providing abortions for women. (EDITOR’s NOTE – In other words we are loosing big buck, because we could care less about the safety of women !)

It is apparent that the climate of intimidation and fear engendered by anti-abortion activism in the last 15 years has made provision of abortion services more difficult.” Johnston said this is the reason Epstein has been unable to find another doctor to back him up. (EDITOR’s note- YUP and it was the anti-abortion people who killed that woman in Queens later, I suppose, huh? )

Representatives of the state Department of Health were unable to find paperwork on Epstein’s clinic and could not respond.

The Next day 4/29/2000, the paper ran this story:

State puts abortion doctor on probation
Binghamton clinic closes

By JENNIFER IVAN
Staff Writer
Dr. Salomon Epstein, who has performed abortions for nearly 20 years, is no longer practicing in Binghamton.

His clinic on Front Street in Binghamton closed Friday, after he could not meet one of the terms of his five-year probation set Friday by the state Department of Health.

Facing 36 allegations of negligence, incompetence and improper record-keeping, Epstein entered an agreement April 14 to plead guilty only to the record-keeping charges. He said he did not seek a hearing for economic reasons.

Epstein’s probation began Friday, said Kristine Smith, spokeswoman for the Health Department. He can continue to practice medicine if he follows the terms of his probation, she said.

One of the terms required Epstein to find a doctor to “back him up” for emergencies on the days he is not in the office. Epstein worked Wednesdays and Thursdays at his clinic in Binghamton, where he performed first- and second-trimester abortions. He maintains a practice in New York City as well.

Epstein said he has been unable to find a back-up doctor for the Binghamton clinic.

Epstein called the results of the investigation bogus. “It’s not an issue of inefficient care,” Epstein said. “I only consented to insufficient record-keeping. That’s it.”

Smith said the terms of probation address all of the charges. “(They are) very specific and appropriate to address the deficiencies in Epstein’s practice of medicine,” she said.

The terms call for Epstein to arrange for another doctor to review all office and patient records and hospital charts, and to make periodic visits to Epstein’s offices. The terms also require Epstein to create a document for each patient, including “history, signs, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up care and instructions.”

Epstein said he thought the investigation was politically motivated.

The allegations are six or seven years old. I don’t understand why the issue has come up all of a sudden. I fear it has something to do with abortion politics.”

Smith disagreed. “We don’t take action on just one case. We try to find a pattern,” she said. “The bottom line is we want to make this care safe for women.”

The only other abortion provider in the area is the Southern Tier Women’s Services in Vestal.

In an article in the NY Post, they reported : Dr. Salomon Epstein, a Brooklyn obstetrician, failed to care for patients after abortions, the state found. In some cases, he did not even test for pregnancy, state records show. The state let him practice on probation from 2000 to 2008.

He has eight payouts from 1996 to 2005. He did not return a call.

In this NY Times article – Victory over Operation Rescue is applauded and who are the clinic’s doctors, you might ask?

Southern Tier Women’s Services, one of two abortion clinics in Broome County, believes it has perfected the art of keeping unruly anti-abortion protesters off its premises….Abortion services are now provided by two doctors, Dr. Cousins and Dr. Salomon Epstein, who travel from New York City to Broome County each week. ( NOTE: Yippie for them – they got a good doc there- now chase away those pesty anti-abortion folk !)

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Check out Epstein’s website where he brags, Doctor Epstein is a New York State licensed physician in practice since 1977. He is a certified specialist by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
And YES…he will do ABORTIONS Up to 20 weeks ( What a guy, I bet NARAL is proud !)

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I do not know if this is the same Doc or not – but a Pennsylvania State Health Licensing Boards in 2004, reported that Salomon Epstein, license no. MD-419812, of Basking Ridge, NJ, was denied a license to practice medicine and surgery based on the fact that he made misleading, deceptive,untrue or fraudulent representations in obtaining a license and has had other disciplinary action taken or an application for a license refused, revoked or suspended by a proper licensing authority of another state. (12/17/03) ( NOTE – LOOKS Pretty suspicious to me, but wait…an abortion doctor would NEVER lie – NO, I must be wrong)

In an effort to be as accurate as possible – I publish the PDF record I have saved from the state – it reads:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Allison Hrestak or Brian McDonald (717) 783-1621
State Health Licensing Boards Release Actions – (1st Quarter 2004)

The State Board of Medicine imposed the following sanctions:
Salomon Epstein, license no. MD-419812, of Basking Ridge, NJ, was denied a license to practice medicine and surgery based on the fact that he made misleading, deceptive, untrue or fraudulent representations in obtaining a license and has had other disciplinary action taken or an application for a license refused, revoked or suspended by a proper licensing authority of another state. (12/17/03)

Dr. Epstein- if these reports are not you – feel free to send me more messages for clarification – because accuracy is my policy here. I will gladly make any corrections you can prove.

  1. […] Operation Rescue has been notified by the State of New York Department of Health that abortionist Salomon Epstein is now under investigation for his part in the abortion death of Alexandra Nunez at a New York City […]

  2. see the latest post of Operation Rescue,Dr. Salomon Epstein denies involvement in the abortion death and never worked nor is related to that A-1 clinic.This information was provided to the NYS Department of Health .The Department knows the identity of the physician involved.Dr. Salomon Epstein’s office is in 37–54 th st, not in the A-1 clinic.Not one of his patients ever died.

  3. I don’t know what do you mean by “the Character of the Abortion industry” but for your information in the State of New York any OFFICE BASED SURGERY(including abortions) is strictly regulated by a law enacted sometime in 2007 I think,which mandates a strict accreditation process of the medical offices doing them by national organizations such as the Joint Commission or the Am Assoc of Ambulatory Care.In the case of Dr. Epstein ‘s office this was done by the Joint Commisssion.Your postings referring to the proceedings from the Dept. of Health in the past,well there are 10 years old,and essentially came down to sloppy and poor medical recordkeeping.The Terms of Probation were very specific in that respect ,All of the terms were succesfully met and Probation ended in 2008

  4. Dr. Salomon Epstein Says:

    Hello Saynsumth,I would request that you remove thisentire thread from the internet and post an apologyThis is outright defamation and libel.I was not the doctor in thia case.Please do it soon.Sincerely

  5. Dr. Salomon Epstein Says:

    you sound like an idiot,if you were not led to believe that I was the doctor involved,you wouldn’t have printed all this stuff.If someone wants info about me or my practice ,would go to the DOH website,which is much more objective that what you write.

  6. Great research. He threatened me with a lawsuit too. I thought I hit GOLD when I found what I did, but you upped me big time. I posted a link on my blog to this article so my readers can find more detailed information. Rebecca has commented on my post about him too.

  7. Dr. Salomon Epstein Says:

    You see saynsumth,you have one more guy interested in the stuff you write about,this guy from catholics view,his name is Stan Cunnigham and he is a Deputy Sheriff in Eugene,Oregon,unbelievable.!Why don’t you identify yourself ,I mean your real name,and perhaps your address,as this guy Stan bravely did.I think that if if you want to exercise your right to “free speech” meaning trashing somebody for no valid you should say who you are.Regards.Dr . Epstein

  8. Thank you for your comment Dr. Epstein. I don’t understand why you think it is unbelievable that a Deputy Sheriff would be Pro-life and talk about it. As a Catholic it is my obligation to do so. As far as the department of health is considered, if you go there you can not search the archives, which is where the actions are against you, Dr. Epstein Abortion Doctor extra-ordinare.www.catholicsview.com

  9. Dr. Salomon Epstein Says:

    what archives are you talking about Stan?You sound silly>You are messing up Saynsumth’s blog and he is going to get mad.Go back to your blog catholic views “simple answers for complex catholic problems” and write about the pedophiles in the clergy of the Church.That’s a big problem and you as a law enforcement officer should be more concerned with this subject that get involved in trashing a doctor,

  10. Archives are old records – surprised you didn’to know that. Archived records from New York- which are no longer easily available, are the records that show that New York took action on some record keeping violations and the like. I don’t know if there was officially medical misconduct but a article pointed out that you paid a lot out in settlements for some stuff, right? Less than a half percent of all ordained are pedofiles.Dr. Epstein what is silly about this is that you continue to comment on posts that state what a horrible doctor you might be so the site gets ranked high on Google. If you just left us alone these posts would disappear into an internet black hole but you can’t stop yourself from digging your own grave.BTW bloggers like it when people keep a post active. Keep commenting so this post that talks about you gets listed higher on the search engines if that is what you want.

  11. Dr. Salomon Epstein Says:

    Now you want this to go in the “internet black hole” and to leave you alone.
    You started this unwarranted cyber attack.Now it does not sound silly.You sound idotic.I wonder what the good citizens of Lane County and the State of Oregon think of you,law enforcement officer,Lane County Deputy Sheriff,Stan Cunningham,trashing a New York City doctor. in his spare time.Now these blogs look like real garbage.Poor Saynsumth.

  12. Elizabeth Says:

    I had a first-trimester abortion by Dr. Solomen Upstein in 2005 and it was a horrific experience. He did not test for pregnancy before my abortion; he also drugged me prior to an pelvic examination without a women in the room (both illegal). He stuck his finger in my vagina when I was almost unconscious before I was able to loudly demand that a female assistant be in the room so that he couldn’t sexually abuse me. One arrived, and she quickly blasted the radio to hip-hop and started dancing around the room, clapping her hands.

    Afterwards, I suffered hemorrhaging, fever and infection. I called the clinic and they called in a antibiotic prescription for me; they never requested to see me or performed any follow-up care.

  13. Dr.Salomon Epstein Says:

    2005 ??? Now???This Elizabeth” is a convicted felon(Travis County Jail(Austin,TX).
    This is a concoted review.These things didn’t happened here.
    It would have been investigated and acted upon.Don.t you think?

  14. I was doing a search and this has brought some memories back. I forgot to add that Mr. Epstein attempted to have me fired from law enforcement because of my Prolife stance. As he clearly showed us here, my superior (Captain) thought Mr. Epstein didn’t understand a persons right to free speech. He also found no wrong doing in any of my writings (which at the time were in the 80 or 90 posts).
    I think Mr. Epstein and his employee Becky give us a good example of an abortion doctor. Educated in a third world country for medicine, high number of complaints, is degrading towards women (identifying the woman as a felon, inmate, her opinion of a abortion doctor isn’t valid.) As I have said before, your investigative reporting of an abortion doctor will hopefully save many unborn children. The first clue to Epstein and why no one should see him is the number of complaints and discipline records. A great picture of an abortion doctor I must say!
