Dr. Rafferty saved my life. I was diagnosed with colon cancer after a colonoscopy at 45 in NKY. I was referred to a general surgeon to remove the tumor. The CT scan seemed to show that the tumor was contained. It was strongly recommended that I go to Dr Rafferty. MRI showed the tumor had escaped the colon wall and had spread to lymph nodes. My course of care changed to chemo/radiation, colon resection, and chemo follow up. I'm a little over 2 years post surgery and still clear!

Can't say enough good things about this surgeon, her office, and her staff. Not only is she highly skilled as a surgeon, she has incredible communication skills: very accessible to patients and so easy to talk to. Knowledgable, efficient, organized and compassionate. When one has cancer and is facing surgery, you want the most competent surgeon available which is Dr. Rafferty . Hue vervet the fact that she looks you in the eye and treats you like a person not just acase is even better.

Dr. Rafferty saved my life. I thought I had hemorrhoids only to discover it was Stage IIIa cancer. I called to make an initial appointment & whoever I spoke with took the time to question me about my symptoms...3 days later I was in her office. She & her office staff made every arrangement for every test, etc. & then put me in touch with 2 amazing oncologists who brought me through chemoradiation therapy. The treatment was hell but the result - remission, life, & time w/my 8 yo granddaughter!

I believe Doctor Rafferty is a excellent Doctor and I would and have recommended her to some people I know needing surgery. She was very easy to talk to and I felt so comfortable with her, because I knew she had my best interest at heart. She and her whole staff have just been great. Thanks to them I just walked my youngest daughter down the wedding aisle.I can't say enough or praise them enough..
