Absolutely the worst Doctor and staff I have experiences in my life! He does not listen, throws drugs at you without explaining the side effects (which were quite serious in my case), and treats you based on how much your insurance pays. I actually had one staff member intentionally "miss" my vein 4 times just to cause me pain. Run from this Doctor!!

He saved my life too! The 3 rheumatologists I had before him misdiagnosed me and treated me for 5 years with high doses of drugs I didn't respond to because I never had rheumatoid arthritis in the first place. He saw the truth in the first 10 minutes I was in his office, that I didn't have and had never had it. He is an instructor at UCSD medical school, and had all three of the previous doctors in class and said they hadn't paid attention in class. The second and should all have their licenses suspended and be required to go to CE. The first one is a charlatan and should have his license permanently revoked.

I adore Dr. Jaffer. He has been my allergist for 25 years and also treated my son. He is very intelligent, caring, and professional. He has a terrific staff. Shayna and Mary are both very knowledgeable. I don't know what I'll do when he retires! It will feel as if I am losing part of my family.
