We saw Dr Fufa on three separate occasions. Each one was worse than the previous. Without going into details I can say that she has the worst people skills and bedside manner I have ever experienced.

I saw Dr. Fufa for a consult. She is exactly the kind of doctor that I like: highly competent, evidence-based, confident, and efficient. I appreciated that she did not steer me toward an unnecessary intervention (which surgeons can sometimes do), and while I can't speak to her surgical abilities since I only had a consultation, I would certainly come to her first if/when that time comes.

Very knowledgeable and skilled surgeon. She was able to diagnose my problem and present solutions. Very impressed
I am 103 years old and had injured my wrist in a fall. An initial x-ray revealed no fracture, but without an adequate physical exam, Dr Fufa said my pain was all due to arthritis and gave me options of remaining in a splint, taking Aleve, using a cream, or having another cortisone shot. She asked me to return in 4 weeks, and when I did, still in pain, she angrily asked me, without an exam, why I had bothered coming back since there was nothing else she could do. She told me never to come back.

Don't know how good the doctor is as didn't have a chance to even make an appointment for my mother as her Staff makes you wait on the phone for hours, horrible! Terrible staff that makes promises to call back within minutes, days and never get back to you. I'm sorry for the doctor giving this rating but very unprofessional staff - I don't know how busy you may or may not be but do people a favor and FOLLOW UP!

My husband injured his pinky and had his initial visit with the doctor. He traveled 1 and half hour to see Dr. FUFA, Waited for 2.5 hours for a doctor who never showed up. He saw a PA and a nurses they did an x-ray for him and refer him to see another hand specialist. After the appointment he had to go home to our baby, he wanted to check out but there were no staff was at the front desk. It was very unprofessional. There were no explanation as to why the doctor never showed up.

Calm, yet direct and honest. Comforting bed side manner.

I feel very lucky to have had Dr. Fufa fix my broken elbow. She and her team at HSS were extremely competent, professional, and nice. I can?t imagine the surgery and rehabilitation process being any easier. Dr. Fufa is a very smart, well trained, and skilled surgeon. I really hope that I don?t break another bone, but if I do, her office would be my first call!
in Demarest, NJ |
I am completely satisfied with my surgery. She is one of finest surgeons I have experienced.
