Patient Comments (6)

Dr. Phieffer not only has a terrific bedside manner, but she clearly knows what she is doing. I guess her 20 years of experience and ivy league education are evident. Bravo to a doctor who clearly loves what she does and cares about her patients' well-being!

The whole visit, from start to finish, was awesome. All the staff is great and very nice. Office itself is beautiful. Anytime and everytime I have had to contact the office, I was treated with respect and care. Dr Phieffer is great. You can tell she really cares about her patients.

She did not spend time to find out what was wrong with me. It appears she just did now want to help me. I have found another doctor who is concerned with my care.
