Dr Geffen was a few minutes late seeing me, but he took his time and went the extra mile explaining things to me prior to, during and after my testing. I did not think he was rushing through my appointment with him. He was knowledgeable and while the information from my testing surprised both my surgeon and myself, it was well received as an EMG test cannot lie, it tells you exactly what your body is telling the machine. I will refer others to him without a question.

Engulfing arm & shoulder pain 24/7 for a month. Had to do insurance dance - see my doc to get a ref to spine doc to finally get to Dr. Geffen. Needed cortisone injection in neck. Dr. Geffen and his staff are kind, understanding, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. I immediately felt I was in very competent and capable hands. Procedure was very well planned, organized, and executed without a hitch. Dr. Geffen is a wizard, and his staff is amazing.
