Dr. Jastifer recently performed reconstruction surgery on my foot. Dr. Jastifer is personable and knowledge and put me at ease over this major surgical procedure. Everything went well, I followed his specific medical orders and for the first time in years I have no pain in my foot! His entire staff is great to deal with!

Dr. J is young, knowledgable and easy to work with. His repair of my ruptured achilles tendon went well and my recovery has been great.

Absolutely wonderful experience! My surgery went extremely well. Dr. J. Explained everything, and had a super office staff that did not take crap from the Veterans Choice program, which is often a nightmare for us veterans! I highly recommend Borgess Orthopedics!

I came to Dr. Jastifer to get a second opinion on a previous injury. In my first visit he found out what problem I was having, compared to multiple visits with a different doctor who did not diagnosis the injury properly. He explained what was going on in easy to understand way. His knowledge he showed when describing the procedure and what was going on helped settle my nerves regarding surgery. After he performed the surgery, every check up he showed support and answered my questions. Great Dr.

Dr jastifer is fantastic. His bedside manner is top notch. There is no great matter with him. He's brief and to the point. When he is done you know what your options are and have an idea of where to go next. Dr Jastafer is another fine example of how Borgess cultures good health care by maintaining a staff that patients are comfortable with.
Dr. Jastifer did surgery on a broken tibia and torn meniscus. He is a very caring doctor. I would recommend family and friends most definitely. Has an awesome bed side manner. Explanation of surgery and recovery very undestanding.
