Dr. Yurfest is absolutely amazing, he is very sweet and always does his best to help. Best doctor around!
in Westfield |
After relocating from Boston, I fell off of a 2nd story deck. Having access to Boston doctors, I was used to excellent care. From the 1st visit 6 months ago, I look forward to seeing Dr. Yurfest! He is extremely thorough, knowledgeable and professional. I have since moved to Westfield, but I am choosing to go to Dr. Yurfest in Pittsfield over Boston and they are both an hour away. Sue is also very kind and helpful!
