Wonderful experience with Dr. Tifford. He was very easy to talk to, spent a lot of time with me and I felt like he was actually listening to what I had to say. I highly recommend him!
in Darien, CT |
Dr Tifford repaired a full tear of my rotator cuff with fantastic results! This shoulder now seems stronger than my other one. It did not come without a long rehab process but I am back in the gym and doing push ups with no problems. I have full range of motion. I cannot express how grateful I am and fortunate to have had Dr Tifford do this surgery.

Dr. Tifford reconstructed my ACL. I was very nervous to have surgery and was especially dreading the recovery stage. Thankfully he was extremely easy to talk to, compassionate and reassuring. Everything went PERFECTLY and I was able to get back to my activities in no time!
in Milford, CT |
My experience with Dr. Tifford excelled all my expectations. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. He is the most professional, kind and knowledgeable doctor I have ever met.

Dr Gifford treated a pained shoulder. Thorough, caring, professional. Highly recommend.
in Scarsdale, NY |
Dr. Tifford operated on my right shoulder and the experience was nothing less than amazing. I had my other shoulder previously operated on at a very well known NYC Orthopedic Hospital and my experience with Dr. Tifford and his staff was far superior. I am thrilled with my new shoulder and I am back to playing tennis, golf and swimming like nothing ever happened.

I have seen Dr. Tifford several times over the last couple of years after seeing two other Orthopedic Surgeons for a complex knee issue. I found him to be attentive, responsive to my questions and concerns and felt extremely confident in his ability to care for me. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone looking for an Orthopedic Surgeon.

Couldn't remember my name even after surgery. Left stitches in my meniscus (knee) which greatly extended my recovery time, yet recommended pt for a standard meniscus trimming. I wasn't even aware that he sowed it back together until the stitches popped and I had to get a second surgery. It wasn't until the second surgery that the new surgeon told me there were stiches in my meniscus. Long story short, don't trust him.
