Thoughtful, thorough, kind and knowledgeable. She is hands down the best primary care physician I have experienced. As a health care professional myself, I feel I am pretty picky but I couldn’t have found a better doctor to use.

Dr. Jaffa really changed my whole perception of doctors. I found her after wanting to move on from a doctor who focused on nothing but my weight. Dr. Jaffa reassessed my meds and got me in the path to totally turning around my type 2 diabetes.

Dr Jaffa is patient, kind and understanding, I sometimes have trouble articulating all my thoughts and feelings so people often talk over me while I am trying to figure out what I want to say. Dr Jaffa always waits for me to get my thoughts together, and listens. Hands down the best doctor I have ever had.

I love Dr. Jaffa! She is very caring, understanding, patient, and determined to take care of her patients! She makes sure you are always comfortable and has helped me along my journey with PCOS. She is quick to respond to any questions, concerns, or worries you have and offers multiple solutions to ensure the problem is solved. While in the office she ensures you are getting the proper treatments (if needed) and staying healthy the best way possible! I appreciate her so much as my primary!

Dr. Jaffa is the most caring and knowledgable doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I believe it is rare to find a doctor truly this good. She genuinely cares for her patients and it is clear she enjoys what she does. She is a great listener, compassionate, and understanding. Dr. Jaffa always goes above and beyond and makes sure that all my questions are answered. I will miss working with her.. It will be impossible to replace her!

I started seeing Dr Jaffa last summer. I am dealing with a years long parasite infection. She referred me to a neurologist who diagnosed me with a tapeworm infection. After the medicine prescribed didn't work, I asked Dr Jaffa for a different medicine for tapeworm, which she refused to prescribe. The neurologist prescribed it and it worked, but I need a second dose. He told me to get the second dose from Dr Jaffa and she has again refused to prescribe the medicine. Dr Jaffa has not been helpful. I am currently looking for a better doctor.

Dr. Jaffa is the kindest most sincere doctor I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. She took interest in my concerns and the follow up care I received was the best of any doctor I have ever seen. Due to her coaching and help I have been able to lose over 60 lbs. She was patient with me and took time to answer all of my questions. I didn't feel rushed out of the room. I have told so many of my family and friends about the great care I have gotten with her. I would trust her with any medical concern I was having. She's also not too hard on the eyes. I thought she was a young nurse when she first entered my room. Look no further for a new primary care physician.

Dr. Jaffa took her time to go over everything with me. I started seeing her for my physical and in the past, doctors I’ve had look at me like why are you here? I’m thin athletic and apparently “appear” healthy. She ran every test she was able to per my situation and went over the result thoroughly. She a very warm and kind woman. So happy I found her!

I had gone to the same doctor for over 30 years even after I moved farther out. I guess mostly because of habit. But when I had to change my doctor because of insurance purposes, I was lucky enough to find Dr. Jaffa. From the beginning I was relaxed and happy to find doctor five minutes from my home. I will be changing insurances again and will definitely make sure she accepts it. I think I found my forever doctor.

I'm not one who goes to the doctor regularly, but I have to say, this was by far the best experience I've had. Dr Jaffa was very personable, knowledgeable and caring. She assessed and diagnosed my issue quickly. The visit didn't feel rushed and she was very thorough. I hope she stays with this practice for a while, I'm kind of looking forward to annual visits now :)
