Dr. Haffez was thorough, answered all my questions and treated me like a person unlike so many others in the past. My decision to see Dr. Haffez has been one the very best decisions I have ever made! Thank you to everyone at CSM!

I work in healthcare and I've never dealt with an MD with so much arrogance and poor bedside manner. He came in the room, didn't introduce himself. Anyone with a condition wants to feel at ease and be educated. I walked out of there not knowing anything different. The after visit summery read differently than what he verbally told me so I don't trust him. When I explained how I felt about the visit to the PA that works with him she got defensive. Unfortunate because I was so excited to meet him.
I am not going back. This guy was so highly talked up and I am about sick to my stomach on the service I received. Looks like the I will NOT allow him to touch me. He will NOT listen. Over talks me when I try to tell him how I feel. Laughs off symptoms. I do NOT trust him. He doesn't care. He just doesn't CARE! I wouldn't refer my worst enemy to him. 2 visits and I got to talk to him for exactly 7 minutes COMBINED. (yes I timed it.)

Dr. Heffez is very thorough and an excellent surgeon. He answered all of my questions/concerns. After my surgery I immediately felt relief. I would definitely recommend him to my friends/family. I cannot say enough how much he has changed my life as well as saved my life.

Dr. Heffez is an excellent surgeon who will actually talk to you and answer your questions. I was so blessed to have him remove the brain tumor which halted my life.
