I highly recommend Dr. Jaffe. It might take some time to get on his busy schedule, but having him as your Dermatologist is well worth the wait.

I give Dr. Jaffe credit for the compassionate care he's given our son. His skin is clearing up and he has much more confidence because of it!

I saw Jaffe in Santa Fe for nearly 3 years. All that time I got worse and worse. Finally I decided to drive the 2-1/2 to 3 hour round trip to a doctor in Albuquerque who immediately diagnosed my primary problem as caused by some of the meds Jaffe prescribed. The new Dr. took me off those meds, I immediately improved, and continue to improve 2 years later. I can explain why Jaffe misdiagnosed and mistreated me, but considering the suffering he caused, I'm not saying without compensation.
I am surprised and very sorry to hear this, and ask that you consider calling my office and letting me know your name so I can look into your case closely. This strikes me as unusual, and if your suffering was in any way my doing, I'd certainly like to learn from it. Our goal, of course, is always to help patients get better, not worse. I would very much like to revisit what your ailment was, and what meds were prescribed. You may leave a message with my staff and I will call you. dj
I have been in health care for many years and have rarely encountered such rude front desk staff. I can overcome the fact that the office looks like a run down mobile home on the inside and the fact that you are rushed in and out of the appointment like cattle through a meat packing plant. What I can't believe is how rude the front desk receptionist was to my family. I will not be going back.
Rudeness from any of our office staff, whether real or perceived, is unacceptable. You can be sure that we have addressed this issue, and we will continue to address it if it remains a problem. D. Jaffe
