Patient Comments (2)
in Overland Park, KS |
Dr Gaffney is a good listener who pursues a diagnosis thoughtfully and knowledgeably. I especially appreciate her ability to explain medical terms in a lay person's language. I have recommended her to others and those who chose her are equally satisfied and happy with her professionalism and caring.

Very easy to talk with. Takes time to listen and shares details in an easy to understand way. The only difficulty I have had is in communicating with the RN staff over the phone.
