Dr Serif was wonderful when replacing my hip! I was up and walking the very next day! He has a GREAT bedside manner too! Explained the whole procedure before and after! Hooray for Dr Serif! A happy patient. Donna Houser

terrible outcome with surgery, what should have been a simple surgery has left me impaired for life.
Palm Springs, CA |
Dr. Serif had a genuine concern about my mom's health. He made extra efforts to make her more comfortable and relaxed prior to her surgery (on her broken wrist). He told us that he may not see us after thee surgery - (managing our expectations very well) because he had a packed day. He showed up by moms bedside right after her surgery - I think he may have been on his lunch break because he was obviously swallowing down a bite of something. This man cares- he has been amazing so far.

I thought the doctor explained what my problem was to me in a matter of fact way but he has an attitude with me when I showed disappointment with his recommendation of physical therapy which to me is fine if it helps.I won't deal with him again.

This was my first visit to Dr Serif and it was most pleasant. I was completely at ease as he discussed the upcoming surgery on my wrist. I felt confident that he would handle it professionally and I had no reservations or concerns after our meeting. His staff was also courteous and helpful. My wait was less than 10 minutes which is a good start with any doctor!!!
