Dr. Yaffe is easy to talk to, a good listener, and takes a conservative approach. The receptionists are generally not great, and one in particular gave me a really hard time during check-in. She could use some training in customer service. That wouldn't deter me from seeing Dr. Yaffe again, though.

Dr. Yaffe was very down to earth and easy to talk too. This is my fifth trigger for and no what to expect after receiving a cortisone shot. We also discussed the fact that I had surgery on three trigger fingers and that the surgery wasn’t successful, which he was surprised to hear. We discussed so things that we might try with those fingers.

i highly recommend Dr. Mark Yaffe to everyone. Dr Yaffe is truly a skillful and extremely intelligent orthopedic physician and hand surgeon. Dr Yaffe takes time at each office visit to explain ex-rays, procedure and results. he listens very intently to my concerns. Dr Yaffe is also very compassionate, really cares about me as a person. Dr Yaffe is an excellent and qualifies hand orthopedic surgeon. i truly trusted all of his recommendations through out my journey of healing my wrist injury. Karina (occpational therapist) was outstanding to work with. Karina is patient-focused and really cared about my results accomplished each week in therapy. Karina helped me each week to achieve my goals with getting back to a normal life after a wrist injury. she really listened intently each week to any concerns or questions. i would highly recommend Karina as an occupational therapist to anyone.

Dr Yaffe changed my life! When I walked into his office, I was unable to write my name due to the pain. He gave me an injection and within days, I was pain free and back not only to writing but playing the harp. He is a miracle worker!
