Dr. Serafini's Care Philosophy

I prefer to manage most of my patient's issues without referring out to multiple other doctors. My greatest joy comes from explaining to patients and their families how medical management can both extend and improve the quality of their lives. I take pride in keeping my patients out of the hospital though that is where most of us meet. I also believe that the greatest complement a physician can receive is being recommended to a friend or family member and entrusted with their care.

    I had no idea I felt bad until I felt this good. Recognized areas where we could improve, made some changes and they paid off just like he said they would. If living longer and doesn't interest you and you'd rather do things your way, then he's not the doctor for you. If living a longer healthier life is what you're looking for than he is. He doesn't sugar coat it. People come to him from very long distances for his expertise and because he gets results. The best I've ever been to.

    Didn't ask for previous medical records just started prescribing meds. Did not seem interested in me or my life... only making sure my lab numbers looked right.

    Dr. Serafini is very intelligent and his efforts speak for themselves. Before seeing him I was in the hospital every month or so and I haven't been in the hospital since I started seeing him. As long as I take my medicine and make my appointments I have the comfort of knowing that I'm going to live longer and have a better quality of life. I've never felt better. In response to others I would say that he is very clear on what he expects from his patients.

    Am 62 years old and the best doctor I have ever had

    Great in every way. He tells you what you need to know in an understandable way without making you feel stupid. You can tell he really cares about you and is SO smart and skilled!

    Dr Serafini kept me making office visits every 3 months for my Cholesterol and Thyroid meds, even knowing I was a self pay without benefits. He would not give me a script for anymore than 3 months. He ran tests that weren't needed. He checked me for menopase even though he knew I was way past that, I am 61. The testing was out of my pocket as I had no insurance. He had very few patients.

    Terrible, he wants to take you off medicine after you have taken it for years. Then when you go to a specialty doctor that He knew you was going tk, he cancels your care. He has a lady named Courtney that is totally rude and obnoxious. Tons of miscommunication in his office. Would not recommend my dog to him.
