Dr Rafferty had a chance to fix my mom's back nine weeks earlier but instead he messed up the paperwork to have a scan three times sending her back and forth for test (including going on vacatio) knowing her pain until the fourth time which was too late her pain was unbearable her body became to weak and she got an ulcer from the suffering causing her to become septic and causing of a stoke and heart failure from shock of the pain. She would be alive today had he done his job but instead we her

Pleasantly surprised, a surgeon willing to talk to us not pushing surgery at all, but explaining, patiently, having examined x-rays taken elsewhere before seeing me, explained options clearly, answered multiple questions.

Dr.Rafftery is a great doctor after 4 months of trying everything to avoid surgery he was recommended by my doctor. He could see I was in pain and did everything to find me a solution.I had back surgery and walked out of hospital the same day! Was back to work in less than 6 weeks. Awesome Doctor!!

This poor excuse for a doctor treated me with disrespect and totally misdiagnosed me with a condition I don't have. Because of Raftery, I am going to need further spine surgery. He either didn't look at my MRI or the report or he did and was too bothered to try and fix the mistake he made. After a surgery he performed on me a few months ago to remove a screw he first installed that came loose, I returned to him saying I was still in pain. He laughed in my face and pawned me off on another doctor

I gave the doctor another try and I am glad I did. He gave me a shot in my back and feel a lot better.
