I had a very positive experience with Dr. Maffei and Advanced Surgeons in Valhalla. Dr. Maffeii is extremely informative and takes his time with his patients. His office staff is courteous, meticulous, and responsive. They eased me through the six month insurance clearance for my surgery, and I experienced no bumps or delays. My surgery went smoothly as well, as did my recovery, something I attribute to Dr. Maffei's skill. I highly recommend Dr. Maffei and his team.

After 2 and a half months of pain, sometimes severe, I decided my wife was right and it was time to see a doctor. Of course it was days before Christmas and the timing couldn't be worse. My wife being in the medical field knew I needed surgery. I was soon diagnosed, after a cat scan with an inguinal hernia. Dr. Anthony Maffei came highly recommended by several doctors my wife spoke with. Dr. Maffei laparoscopically repaired my hernia and the pain is gone! Back to work in 3 days. Amazing job!

Other surgeons had turned me away for a revision to a 1994 surgery. Dr M was receptive to me although he made me aware the risks were higher with this type of surgery. Once Dr M knew that I accepted the risks and was working hard to get into better health he was all in. The surgery was difficult due to scar tissue and the previous surgery. Dr M did a wonderful job. I am so grateful to Dr M for his outstanding skills and willingness to take me on as his patient. I am lucky to have found him

I had laparoscopic Lap Band removal and conversion to the gastric sleeve on June 29th 2017 with Dr. Maffei. He was amazing from our first meeting all the way through to the after care visit. I am extremely impressed with his skills and bed side manner. He took the time to explain everything in detail and make sure I was given all the information needed. The surgery itself was smooth. I've had zero complications and I'm healing well. I strongly believe that his surgical skills are the reason.

I had complications from a hernia surgery I had in 2014. I was in pain and also fearful to have surgery again. I had researched many doctors and found Dr.Anthony Maffei. He instantly made me feel at ease and took the time to answer all my questions, and I had many. Dr.Maffei is one of the most caring, compassionate, and professional doctors I have ever met. Every Aspect of my surgery was handled with excellence. I am blessed to have found him and will forever be grateful.

Dr. Maffei is an amazing doctor and i'm so happy with my results and my progress I couldn't have picked a better surgeon to perform my bariatric surgery. Dr. Maffei can highly recommend to me by my father. My father said that he would only trust my life in the hands of Dr. Maffei and boy was he correct. I would highly recommend him and his team of staff if you are looking into and considering bariatric Surgery. Dr. Maffei's staff makes you feel like you are at home its like a family atmosphere.

Dr.Maffei is the most skillful surgeon with regard to his surgical expertise and patient relatedness skils. My daughter first underwent a vertical sleeve gastrectomy& lost 150 pounds and all of her weight related health issues were rectified.2years later I followed in my daughter's path in 2016, I was evaluated and deemed appropriate for the same procedure; at 58 with Autoimmune issues,Dr. Maffei assured me this would work and most importantly be safe.100 down great tool & team. look no further.

I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Maffei. Not only is he a very competent surgeon, he has remarkable bedside manner and makes you feel as though you are his only patient and priority #1. I had 2 surgeries with Dr. Maffei in less than a year and I have never felt so comfortable and at ease with any other doctor. He converted my sleeve to a gastric bypass and later removed my gallbladder. I trusted him completely and knew I was in good hands.

There is not a more caring, professional Dr. Than Dr. Maffei. He is kind, knowledgeable and will never rush you through a visit. He patiently answers all your questions - without attitude. I love him ,and cant recommend him enough. He came highly recommended to me by two of his previous patients, and I'm glad i decided to work with him. A year later, he's still as attentive as the first time i met with him. I owe this man my life. I am very grateful to have met him. A++++++.

I was in need of a very difficult surgery for my husband, but friends and physicians had advised me to go to the city of New York, because there I will find the best surgeons. I have my own concerns, however. So, I had decided to go to Westchester County Medical Center, where I found Doctor Anthony Maffei. Me and my husband were very impressed, after the first consultation. The surgery was done, without any major complications. Doctor Maffei, did and excellent job.
