I had anxieties about this surgery for many years. Then, I met Dr. Koffron. Heaven sent. He and his team did everything promised to see that my care was first priority. I felt like a celebrity. Lol! I had carried a 10-pound mass around for 11-years. I was obviously terrified of having this removed. I know GOD sent this miracle Dr. to help me feel safe. He worked through Dr. A. Koffron+his's colleague. I'd just like to point out that I'm a black woman and I know for certain when I looked into this man's eyes I could trust him because GOD had sent him. He is an angel. He never saw my color. He only saw my condition and knew that 10-pound mass had to be removed asap. The surgery took place on October 30th, 2019 and I feel fantastic! I'm reaching out because doctors like him should never go unnoticed. He deserves recognition. I've reached out to the Dr. Oz Show and CBN The 700 Club with this testimonial. No response. I even have a pic that Dr. Koffron+his colleague took holding the mass.

When you go to visit this doctor he will give you that impression that he is the one that you want to trust to do your surgery with Dr. Koffron is a very professional actress, he will not stop talking how smart he is, how all his patients get 100% successful result from his surgeries, and how he have his "professional team" that works under his directions in all his surgeries. Don't let the way that he will explain the procedures and results of the surgery FOOL you. All he cares is how to convince you to trust him and put your life under his hands. After he's done with your surgery he will disappear like a ghost. If you decide to do your surgery with Dr. Koffron, good luck having the chance of being a live.

Dr. Koffron promised my husband that he will take a good care of him for stomach cancer. He told us that "there is no complications, no infections with my surgeries" and promised that my husband will stay 3-5 days at the hospital. We trusted him and did the surgery with him on 2/5/2020 my husband Is still at the hospital till now 2/25/2020 with the worst infection, 4 outside drained bags, high fever, high blood pressure, and high heart rate. After the surgery finished Dr. Koffron came and told me that the surgery is done and it was "successful " I asked him when he is going to see my husband, he told me I will be seeing him everyday, but he only saw him for once. The worst surgeon that I ever seen.

I feel blessed to have found such an exceptional surgeon, from explaining what my surgery would entail to my hospital stay he was there . Any questions or concerns I or my family had were addressed immediately . His team was 5 Star also ! Upon meeting him and discussing my situation I felt a trust in him that surprised me, I felt no second opinion was required, had my surgery and I am doing well ! Without hesitation I would recommend him!

I first came to know Dr. Koffron when he and his team literally saved my brother from a certain death by providing him with a liver transplant. Lo and behold, here it is two years later and I find myself in the same boat gratefully under the care of Dr.Koffron and his team. Koffron is quite a guy, a consummate professional, yet one of the most approachable and accesible physicians I've ever known. His knowledge is vast. He explains medical procedures on a comprehensible level. He connects.

Dr. Koffron, might have a great bedside manor, fails to let you know the after affects of the surgery he is doing. My wife let him do surgery on her related to liver cancer. He never told us she would have to go in and have 10 needle stuck in her belly every week to be drained this is very painful and now wishes she was dead. Now that this has occurred he has passed her off on to other doctors and I complained that she is worse then before and getting all these bills they now dropped her
