Dr. Pifer herself is great. I feel like she listens to my needs, and is quite accommodating. The issue I have is with the office staff. They don't listen to the questions being asked or they just don't know the answers, and don't make an effort to get a clear answer over the phone. Billing took 3 voicemails and 6 days to finally get someone on the phone. I've seen Pifer for several years now, but after recent events will plan on looking for an office closer to home with better communication.

Dr. Pifer is a wonderful family physician. She has delivered high level health care for our family for nearly 30 years. She takes the time to listen to patients, consider their problems and then render efficacious treatment or refer them to a specialist who can. Her office staff has been very professional in their dealings with us at all times. She and her staff enjoy my highest level of trust.

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Pifer for years. We cannot say enough good things about her and her staff. When there, it’s like we are the only patients Dr. PIfer and her staff have to see all day! They are so attentive and kind. There’s never a wait. Dr. Pifer is THE BEST! She truly makes herself available for her patients. Dr. PIfer’s associate, Dr. Chavda, is great, too!

I have been going to Dr Pifer for about 15 years and even after I moved back to south Ft Worth I continued to do sober It I will never step foot back In that office again after today. I called to make an appointment for the following week and the guy who took my call which turned out to be her husband is the most unprofessional person I have ever came across in that office. Took my info on why I was making appointment and started to talk me out of making appointment and I told him sir I would just like to make an appointment for next week and he continues to figure out what is wrong with me and say if your pain continues then call back and make an appointment and again I asked to make an appointment and to put me down for Thursday at so and so time and he finally does after hesitation and then I get off phone thinking wth? I think I know my body and I need to go get checked out so I call back and leave a message to complain on his actions and ask for dr or nurse to call me back...cont

I have been a patient of Dr. Pifer’s for over 20 years. Describing her as wonderful and excellent wouldn’t be enough. She is so caring and very personable.

I have been a patient of "Doc" for over 20 years. I won't see any other Doctor unless she recommends them! She's a keeper, no more needs to be said!

I love Dr. Pifer. She is very professional, knowledgable and take the time to listen to her patients. I take off one star because of the unprofessionalism of her staff. The receptionist lady is always very rude over the phone. And if you have to do blood work avoid Lisa at all cost! Or just pray she will be in a good mood the day of your blood work otherwise she will treat you like crap, will be very arrogant, rude and will do a terrible job taking blood. Don´t say I didn´t warn you...

I've been seeing Dr Pifer for 4 years and absolutely love her! She's very welcoming & makes you feel comfortable immediately. She takes time to listen to any issues and is very helpful in calming your fears. I've changed insurance companies just to see her in the past. Fantastic physician, I highly recommend her.

She has always been there when ever we are in need. Her office staff has been amazing, and if we had a problem they listened to it and it was resolved quickly. We moved to her office when it took 2 days to get an appointment with our current PCP, she had us in later the same day, as a new patient, and scheduled physicals for all of our family, we have been back yearly and as needed ever since. It's nice to have a one stop shop for pediatrician, myself and my husband.

I've seen Dr Pifer for several years and she is by far the best. In addition to providing great care, she calls personally with test results or to answer questions. Her staff is friendly and very personable. I use her for my well woman exams as well as general things. When a situation arose that was beyond general care, she referred me to an excellent specialist.
