Follow-Up to Last Review From R. Candee
Dr. Fefferman championed my cause to receive a medication normally prescribed for once every eight weeks. That frequency was not controlling my symptoms adequately and he undertook to receive an approval for every four weeks. This is not an easy task and required multiple conversations after each denial. Yet, he got it done and I’m now able to much more adequately control my symptoms. I’m writing all this because he fought for what I needed despite the significant effort it entailed and I appreciate it.

Excellent Care
I am under Dr. Fefferman’s care for Chrohn’s Disease. I also have other complex medical issues that require a broader perspective than many specialists are willing to provide. After seeing several Gastro docs upon my Chrohn’s diagnosis, I was fortunate to be seen by Dr Fefferman. Fortunate because he listens carefully, engages in productive discussions, explains without unnecessary jargon and, most of all, keeps working with me to find solutions. I appreciate being treated holistically rather than just as a Chrohn’s patient. A number of my other issues (can) affect Chrohn’s and he is careful to integrate them into his thinking. Read the other reviews. Dr. Fefferman has called me at night, many times, after I contacted him via the portal. Respectfully to others, his administrative staff isn’t doing my colonoscopy; he is. *Use the portal* if you need assistance. I’m rating him on his competence, thoughtfulness and communication. Highly recommend Dr. Fefferman!

Dr. Fefferman is very kind and great bedside manner but very long response time even with emergency cases. No coordination with other physicians like primary care, or heart or diabetes doctors which is important when there are other health issues, and making sure everyone is on the same page and medications do not interact with each other

I could not recommend this office or this doctor. The response time for emergencies is days and even weeks. Scheduling is very difficult and mistakes are often made.
