Your trust is our top concern.

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

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

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.

The secretaries are incompetent fools. Rescheduling an appointment is apparently too much for them to comprehend with the end result being a “no show”

Good luck trying to get a hold of this doctor or anyone to ever call you back. I have left several messages and never get a call back. When you go there they are such in a rush to get you in and out that they don't explain nothing to you. You're the one asking a ton of questions in regards to things they should explain to you. Good luck trying to ever reschedule an appointment because noone will ever call you back, but they'll charge you for missing your appointment. Scam!!

I had a colpoperineorrhaphy with Dr. Scaffidi to fix some issues I had from having my daughter back in 2014 - he was absolutely amazing!!! He knew exactly what he needed to do and was able to reassure me that the surgery would be a success. I am three weeks post-op and for what he had to do, I feel pretty good. I did have a complication, but it was NOT from his technique or lack of experience. I would recommend him to anyone who is interested/needs surgery "down south"!
