    Excellent care from Dr. Jaffe and all of his office staff.

    I was injured and had to wait 5 weeks for an appt. - Dr. Jaffe told me that I should have "pushed" for an earlier appointment, as there is a mechanism in place for such things. I should have been told this earlier...

    I was very pleased that the receptionist came out into the waiting room to inform all patients that Dr. Jaffe was running a little late. She did this without prompting from any patients. She was very appropriate. I was very positively impressed. Within 5 minutes I was called to see Dr. Jaffe. Total wait time 20 minutes and it was quite acceptable.

    Very good experience.

    the nurse/assistant was the best. I was ready for an uncomfortable procedure (shot in my neck) the doc looked at my papers and said "I don't know how to do this." He excused himself for 5 min. All was OK.

    This doctor comes across as a very knowledgeable, and caring doctor & person you can tell he cares able his patient's well being. He had the ability to feel at ease in his office. He's very worth his weight in platinum! [...]

    [...] I was very disappointed it took so long to get in to see him.

    I go to Dr. Jaffe because he gives me his honest feedback. He is autonomous and not afraid to disagree with other doctors.
