Patient Comments (4)

I had a lap chole a few weeks ago and was very nervous about having surgery. Dr Jeffers was amazing and very reassuring. I have seen her twice since my surgery because of an allergic reaction to some adhesive that has prolonged my healing (no fault of anyone). She has taken exceptional care of me....more

She got both my daughter granddaughter in very quickly and got their surgeries scheduled within days. She was very caring and compassionate.
