Dr.Gefter has the "golden touch",when it comes to foot surgery. She not only exhibits,professionalism and expertise....but displays a genuine concern,for her patients well being with her maternal instincts....I had the privilidge of being her patient after emergency foot surgery !!! I am a baby when it comes to pain or injections, but Dr. Gefter actually took all the pain(or most of it) out of my tragic experience .She gets my vote for "PODIATRIST OF THE YEAR" !!!! GO ...

My 12 year old daughter had an issue that came up with her foot. Doctor Gefter was very thorough with her examination. She was very welcoming and made sure that my daughter felt comfortable. Every step that was taken was explained to my doctor. The explanation made both my daughter and I feel at ease.
