Dr. Kadifa is my go-to Dr. for respiratory issues. After being seen by two other pulmonologists over the years and not feeling confident with their diagnosis, I decided to visit Dr. Kadifa for a third and final opinion. He spent a good amount of time with me, answered all my questions, and explained to me what was really going on. Would definitely recommend.

My husband was very sick with pneumonia and pleurisy. We have been going to Dr. Kadifa for a few months. The staff is so pleasant. And I know my husband is in the best care. We need more care in healthcare. And Dr. Kadifa is the perfect example.

Dr. Kadifa was pleasant and knowledgeable. However, the girl in his front office is extremely unpleasant and uncooperative. I will continue to see Dr. Kadifa even though the experience is made unpleasant because of having to deal with the girl in his front office.
