Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I never got to see this doctor. She has the rudest & most incompetent staff. I had an appointment scheduled (for over 3 weeks) . I showed up as scheduled, with my appointment card. The office clerk looked at me, with a blank stare, and said I didn’t have an appointment. He was the one I talked to 3 weeks earlier. He had me fill out all the necessary paperwork 3 weeks earlier. He screwed up big time. I got no apologies from him, only a blank & confused stare. I hope the doctor sees this. He should be fired! I now have an appointment scheduled with a new doctor. From what I can see, this doctor has very good ratings. It’s time she monitors the performance of her staff.

I have been seeing Dr. Jefic for two years. She is the first doctor to stabilize my hypertension. Dr. Jefic is personable and explains everything about her regimen of treatment. I just learned she does not take my new insurance and I am bummed.

Dr. Jefic is awesome, she is through and takes the time to help you understand what is going on with you, she is compassionate and just an awesome Doctor. Her office staff is on the other hand very rude and arogant I called to find out what labs I needed before my next appointment as I had misplaced my paper work from my last appointment and when I called to find out what labs I needed I was imnediately scolded and treated like a child. I am very dissapointed in Dr. Jefics staff I will miss Dr. Jefic but I cannot tolerate that kind of disrespect.

Mine goes back to May 25, 2019. I went via Henderson Engine 99 at 03.00 to St.Rose ER on Epic shock. The following morning is when I met Dr. Jefic. She along with other medical Dr's and staff came to ICU and informed me that I was 10% removed from Dialissys and was put on what was referred to as "monster" antibiotics. Three days later Dr. Jefic informed me that my kidneys were functioning normal. However she let me know in no uncertain words that a change in lifestyle was a top priority. She never failed to see me during my stay and saw me as late as 17.00 on the day of my transfer to the rehab facility. She is everything you need and want in a Physician. As a result of her advice, I have now lost 130 lbs and am at my optimum weight. She is number one in my book.

There are no words with which I could express my gratitude to Dr. Jefic. She saved my mom life five days ago. She recognized and determined the correct therapy, which doctors, both in Europe and here, have not been able to determine for 20 years. My mom has been treated for high blood pressure (hypertension) for 20 years. Doctor Jefic has managed to bring her high blood pressure under control. She determined that her electrolytes were at a critical level especialy sodium, potassium and chloride as well as the wrong diuretic she drank that could have cost her her life. Her office team and assistant Kim showed great professionalism and dedication in dealing with clients. Huge respect and thanks for the doctor Jefic

I have been going to Dr. Jefic for almost a year for hypertention. I had been dealing with extreme hypertension for about a year and my cardiologist could only prescribe meds and then double them and then triple them without any success. Dr. Jefic immediately took control of my case, evaluated my meds, and made some changes. Both my pressure and my edema began to improve because she took the time to evaluate and adjust my meds. She is a very professional and humane doctor. I am sorry it took me so long to find her.

What can I say about Dr. Jefic? She's warm, compassionate, thorough, intelligent, empathetic, and she saved my life by correcting a deadly sodium level drop and tending to my needs immediately. The sodium drop was not checked or corrected by another dr. at St. Rose Sienna thus causing a seizure. I was healthy until I almost died from a negligent Dr. Thank you Dr. Jefic for getting me to ICU and saving my life. I'll always remember you. Hugs, Jean and daughter Kristine Sader
