What People Say About Dr. Judah Pifer, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Pifer did surgery on my foot/Achilles heel and later on my shoulder. He was very professional and the anesthesiologist said we need more surgeons of his caliber in our town. He took a fair amount of time with me and calmed my fears. He offered suggestions about services and how to be more comfortable at home. Seems to be a very good doctor.

I saw Dr. Pifer, he ordered some testing, and determined my course of treatment. He was defensive when I questioned him after he completely forget what he told me at my first appointment. He turned to my husband and spoke to him instead of me. His office staff needs further training on referral procedures and were unprofessional and rude on the phone, telling me they are not obligated to follow through on referrals and were just doing it for me as a courtesy.

Nice prior to surgery after,little to no info, spiels are legalese & no real answers. Treatment in office is totally different if my husband is with me. Nicer, & he shakes husbands hand, not mine, Addresses husband when I am the patient. I injured my surgical foot,called at 9:00 am for X-ray, which they have digitally in house. He sent me to ER since they were closing at NOON & he was too busy to look at the x-ray (30 sec) to see if foot is broken.Yells at staff members in office halls. A Jerk.
