    I had excellent results with reconstructive surgery on both feet. Dr. Pfeffer is a renowned surgeon who is both caring and responsive.

    He is one of the most honest and thoughtful physicians I have ever encountered. He takes the time to listen and discuss the options and considers the short and long term impacts of the treatment plan. I came to him after my wife had ankle surgery and was very impressed with the results given she was a very complex case.
