horrible professional
Total zero! This is the second review I am giving Dr. Guiffrida because my initial review was removed. She is not professional at all and reminded me she was not a robot! She performed a nerve repair surgery (11/2021) for my 13 year old son and promised to communicate during the surgery and did not. Due to her lack of professionalism the surgery was $56000 and for the follow up, reminded me she was no robot and doctors aren't perfect. I got a second opinion and found out my son has 20% permanent damage that is irreparable. Thank you Dr. Guiffrida. Never again!

The perfect orthopedic hand expert
Due to a fall I injured my hand and wrist a friday afternoon. Later that evening I went to a walk in emergency facility in my area. They x-rayed my wrist reviewed the x-rays and said there was no breaks or dislocation.. My wrist continued to swell and the pain increased over the weekend. That following Monday I was able to see Dr. Giuffrida ASAP. She reviewed the x-rays that were taken on Friday and saw a bone chip in my wrist and another in a finger. She diagnosed the injury and immobilized my wrist for several weeks. I'm now completely recovered. Her diagnosis, medical treatment, bedside manner and office staff we're all fabulous! I highly recommend Dr. Giuffrida

Dr. Giuffrida was extremely helpful with my ailments in my dominant hand. The doctor explained options to improve my hand. We talked about an injection treatment as well as surgery. I chose with her recommendation to go with injection treatment which ended up being a breeze. I’m very happy with my results and everything went as described by Dr. Giuffrida. After years of not being able to fully open my hand I’m still getting used to it. I would recommend her Highly to anyone I know. My overall experience was excellent!

Dr Guiffreda is an amazing surgeon. I loved a female doctor more sensitive and professional than two others I went to for carpal tunnel and trigger finger surgery. Also faster healing and no scar which is amazing. Her assistant Lisa made all paperwork easily handled and appointments. Glad I found her. I will be forever grateful ????????

Dr. Giuffrida was friendly and personable, which helped to put me at ease. She prescribed a cortisone injection in my hand, which made me nervous (nobody like shots!). It was over before I could blink, and I didn't feel a thing!
