I saw Dr. Yaffe a few years ago and was very pleased with the services I received. Went back today for a different issue and, again, was very pleased. He takes time to understand your condition and explain the issue and possible treatments. Staff members are also very friendly.

Dr Yaffe is both efficient and very pleasant. He explains your condition thoroughly as well as treatment options. If it involves an injection, as mine did, he’s as considerate and gentle as possible. The office staff and assistants are also welcoming and efficient, and there’s very little wait time. Highly recommended.

Dr. Jaffe was professional, had a wonderfully pleasant demeanor, and was fantastic at using all tools to his avail to diagnose my wrist condition. He was through and down-to-Earth in explaining the findings-not rushed or pompous as some doctors can be-as well as treatment options. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family.

I broke my arm and wrist in a roller skating incident a day before my birthday. I didn't choose Dr. Yaffe, the emergency room at the hospital did and I can't thank them enough. Surgery on my birthday was mostly a blurr. What I DO remember is how reassuring Dr, Yaffe was before and after surgery. These were my first fractures in my 66 years. Dr. Yaffe's bedside manner is top drawer which I consider second in importance. First you ask?? His surgical ability, of course! I had broken my arm close to the elbow and Dr. Yaffe had to install a cage in my elbow area to put this Humpty Dumpty's arm back together. Dr. Yaffe's expertise gave me the ability, along with lots of physical therapy, to recover completely and regain full use of my right arm. If you require surgery and are looking for a doctor that you can feel comfortable with, Dr Yaffe is your man. Want the surgery done right the first time? Dr. Yaffe is your man. You won't be disappointed.

I would highly recommend Dr. Yaffe and his team! I am an active 30 year old who has luckily never had any serious injuries or surgery. I broke my thumb on my dominate hand and that’s how I met Dr. Yaffe. I was really nervous about surgery, but Dr Yaffe took the time to explain in detail why I needed surgery and everything I should expect. I appreciate Dr Yaffe’s personal approach and I am happy to say that his service was the best part of one of my worst days. I am now fully healed and very thankful I had such a great doctor to help me out.

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.
