What People Say About Dr. David Geffner, MD
Reply
Okish, I would not waste my time with Dr Geffner. He was inpatient with my diagnosis and was quick to prescribe Rx, I was not interested in taking. The appointment was like watching paint d-r-y. Needs to work on his bedside manners and talk to pts as if they exist.

Will not return. He didn't listen nor take time to explain anything. He seemed bored and anxious to get through appointment. I've never had such an uncaring doctor in my life.
