Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Superior surgeon for the upper extremity
Dr. Budoff has been the doctor seeing to my upper extremity issues for nearly 20 years. He's an excellent diagnostician, very compassionate, and explains things in a way that everyone can understand. He is a superior surgeon, as well. As a physician/surgeon myself, I'm very picky about the doctors who see to my care, especially my hands. When I had bilateral ulnar neuropathies, he was the one, and not a “so-called high-powered expert”, who said I needed an EMG and then, after reviewing the, EMG said I needed surgery. He has an excellent bedside manner, great sense of humor, and strongly recommended. A+++. Steve Meltzer, M.D.

Dr. Budoff was less than helpful with my medical issue. First, there's no privacy. When I was with other patients, I could hear everything. Secondly, he asked why I was there (never looked over any of the pw I completed). Then he attempted to invalidate everything that I was telling him about my condition. He speaks over you. Despite my finger pain due to a few conditions, he squeezed the finger, said he thinks it's an in-grown nail (possibly correct), and then proceeded to tell me he had nothing in the office to clip the nail. He gave me instructions on clipping it. Why did I pay a co-pay and why will my insurance be billed? Waste of time and money!

Dr. Budoff is totally washed. If you want to have surgery I’m sure he’s extremely nice. That was not my experience however. I visited him seeking more information about carpal tunnel. I’ve found YouTube videos more helpful than he was. Maybe at one point he decided to peruse medicine bc he had a desire to help ppl. It’s unfortunate that somewhere along the way he realized it was more profitable to keep ppl sick than empowering them with information about their bodies and inflammatory responses.

I was referred to Dr. Budoff in 2006 and have had to use him many times, mostly from complications from my diabetes. I believe he has now performed 17 surgeries on hands, wrists and arms. I wouldn't use or trust any other hand and arm surgeon. He cares about his patients and is the top in his field.

Dr. Budoff reconstructed my collarbone with a plate and eight screws after a bike accident caused the bone to break into 4 pieces. I am grateful for his work and I would recommend him.

Although Dr. Budoff answered my questions and has top reviews, my visits seemed rushed. He spoke in a scripted and quick manner. I left feeling like I was just another numbered patient. However, I've chalked it up to "that's just his personality". Either you get it and accept it, or you don't. I plan to go ahead and schedule my surgery with Dr. Budoff because his reviews have sold me.

Dr. Jeffry Budoff is the best. As a pianist, he helped me with my Dupuytren's with great skill and compassion. I would recommend him to anyone. He was worth flying 1000 miles to see. He genuinely cares about his patients.

I have been to several doctors that told me my tumor was a callus... Dr Budoff properly diagnosed me and caught the aggressive tumor. He removed it through surgery and everything went well. I would highly recommend Dr Budoff because of his intelligence, knowledge and skills in his field.
