Dr. Geffen is a waste of time. He is very dismissive and does not have much experience. You can see the wheels spinning in his head because he has no clue. Facts are facts.

Meeting Dr. Geffen is the best thing that has happened me. I was very lucky to have such an experienced, smart, kind and caring physician evaluate me when no other doctor was able to diagnose my high blood pressure issue. He is extremely smart and truly cared about my health. He takes the time to go over my health issues and provides thorough information to help me keep healthy. I highly recommend Dr. Geffen, I could sincerely say he is very skilled.

Left the doctors office where this man works in tears. I had a HORRIBLE experience with him. I came in with an MRI 6 years old and new, painful symptoms. Doctor Joseph Geffen COMPLETELY trivialized all of my symptoms. Honestly, if I hadn’t had a previous MRI showing issues, I would’ve left feeling completely crazy, like what I’m experiencing is all in my head. Thank God for that MRI.Joseph Geffen was terrible and I will have the new testing I had to FIGHT for reviewed by another physician at another practice. Shame on you, Joseph, for making an already worried patient feel this way.

I have been under Dr. Geffen's care for the past 2 years. I could not ask for a better person to take care of the most important thing in my life - my health. I am always compassionately given clear instructions and explanations about my medical issues. I have recommended my friends and family to him and they are all happy as well.

Dr. Geffen is the best thing that has happened to the Clermont/Winter Garden community. We are so fortunate to have such an experienced, smart, kind and caring physician here. He is extremely skillful and smart but what sets him apart is how much he truly cares. He gives his 100% at each visit and each conversation. My entire family sees him and we are more healthy than ever before.

This so called Dr. should not be practicing at the Wound Care Center. He performed a procedure on my husband, after being told that his primary Dr. did not want procedure done and my husband telling him the same, he proceeded anyways saying that it needed done. As a result, my husband has suffered extreme pain in his foot for over 3 months and the healing process will still take several months. We were advised by his primary physician to go to another wound care center so that foot could be treated properly. South Lake Wound Care Center should wake up and have a Dr. there that knows what he is doing and can treat patients with the care they need.

Dr Geffen was my wound care doctor. His patience with my process and progress was totally rewarding for me. My toe was scheduled to be amputated but his care, expertise and dilligence has me still living with ten toes. I cannot say enough good about this fine young physician.

Not only was the office inviting and the wait short, but Dr. Geffen asked questions like he really wanted to understand rather than simply checking off a list. He used open ended questions. He was honest and direct without sounding callused.
