I had a long time struggling with an uncontrollable rash all over my body. After Dr. Gaffney diagnosed and prescribed for me, my problem was solved only less than a week. He is a professional and confident great doctor. His nurses are pleasant to me, too. I highly recommend him!

In the past I do agree the wait times were crazy however he has always been worth the wait. He’s extremely knowledgeable and his nurse practitioner is also extremely knowledgeable. I really appreciate that they take time to explain what is going on and how to use my medicine. They are the best in the area 100%!

Perfection! Dr. Gaffney removed a Basel cell lesion from my face. Surgery went as planned and on time. 6 stitches and two weeks later you can barely see the inch long cut. Staff was great and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Gaffney and his team.

Dr Gaffney gave me my life back!!! I suffered from Palmer planter psoriasis and psoriasis of the scalp and other areas. I was 90% clear for about a year, until now. Now I'm having a flare but do to the virus im out of my meds. I know I need an appointment because it's been a year since I was last seen. I've always been treated very well by staff. Love my dermatologist clinic/office and staff.

I needed moles looked at on my back. Dr. Gaffney and another man were in the office to see me. When I told them that I needed the moles looked at, they simply said okay. I didn’t know what to do next. I asked if I should take my shirt off, or what I should do. They said I could do whatever I wanted to do. I was confused and humiliated. How were they supposed to see my back? Where was a cover-up gown? I finally decided to just lift up the back of my shirt a little. Not sure how they even saw all of the moles on my back by my doing just that. This was so unprofessional. I will never go back.

Dr. Gaffney is a very good doctor and so is his medical staff but the two ladies at the front desk ,the two brunettes can be very rude! they will not greet you talking about recipes and everything in between. wait until your seated and then call you up for your ID even though I have been going there over 10 years! They make the experience less than pleasant for me!

Dr. Gaffney and his office staff are the most personal, pleasant, and professional medical individuals in their specialty I have found in my life time. Having visited doctor offices in many different communities, I applaud not being looked upon as a number or just a piece of flesh. I have absolute faith in their care for my health. They answer every question I have in terms I understand. They are never pompous or pretentious. They are never condescending. Kudos to Dr. Gaffney and his staff.

Would not recommend Dr. Gaffney or any other doctors in that office. I had to wait 45 minutes to an hour on both visits that I went for and not able to see the doctor for the second visit as only the PA was available. He spent a total of a couple minutes with us in the first visit and did not even do the procedure as the assistant did.

I have been to Dr. gaffney's office several times. Each time I had to wait over an hour in the waiting room before I was taken back to be seen. I am not sure how much longer I am going to be seen there. My time is valuable too. Too many patients are scheduled at the same time. The staff is friendly. When the doctor arrives, he spends about two to five minutes and then sends in an assistant to do procedures. I found that his PA is extremely competent, and she actually spends time with the patient
