Had to see doc urgently. His kindness, compassion and experience made a very bad situation almost bearable. His nurse, Jackie, was a peach and really set me at ease. They work so well together. They both have a great sense of humor and for me, that helps greatly. I am better and no need to see him regularly. I have nothing but good things to say about this office and this great man.

Dr. Raphael is friendly and caring. He is very knowledgeable and I feel confident in his assessments. I was lucky to have him as an orthopedic surgeon over 25 years ago, and again as a provider for a recent injury.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Irving Raphael. He's personable, caring, really listens to you and your situation, explains everything in a way you can understand easily, and puts your mind at ease. I left his office feeling great about what was discussed and what plan(s) were going to be followed. He truly lowered my anxiety level to zero.

Dr. Raphael came very highly recommended by my primary care physician and I could not agree more!!! He has spent the time to explain to me what I have wrong and the options that are available. He has great bedside manner and very easy to talk to. I never felt rushed! His staff is always kind and courteous and I left the text messages and emails for reminders for appointments! Thank you very much SOS for making myself and my family feel very comfortable!
