While Dr Sclafani may be an excellent doctor, I'll never find out. his office staff is uncaring, rude and arrogant. Completely unprofessional service. Time to change your front office staff Dr Sclafani

I have had many surgeries on my nose for different skin cancers. So not a lot of skin to work with. Dr. Sclafani was thorough in his explanation of the possible outcome before the surgery. After surgery, he listened to my concerns, discussed in detail timing for recovery and moved up my appointments accordingly. He is compassionate, spends a good amount of time with his patients and I trust him.

Dr. Sclafani is thorough and knowledgeable. Explains all procedures and protocols. Gives reasons why progress is moving forward or not so you don't wonder what's happening after the surgery is over. Excellent bedside manner w no wasted time; either his or mine

Perhaps one of my favorite physicians, though Weill Cornell and Columbia Presbyterian have shown me quite a few noteworthy ones. Dr. Sclafani performed nasal valve surgery on me after having had 2 other doctors make a mess of things. He was always patient, cautious, listened attentively and has about as pleasant a personality as one could hope for. I never felt rushed or noticed disinterest. As for the reviewer who complained about $'s, I never once felt any financial issues were in play.

The $ shake down Dr. & Staff Unprofessional Dr./staff with only $ ethics & not your health or well being. I had a scheduled visit with Dr. Scalfani to have procedure done after my intal visit with him. Knowing I had a deductible I was more than happy to pay after the procedure, But no Dana the Dr. assistant & hospital staff insisted $ be paid before procedure? ?Dr.?s orders? I asked them to show me the policy where it?s documented that I have to pay before procedure is done?Noting. STAY AWAY.
