in Park Ridge, IL |
My complaint of many Doctors is what I call the "rush Job". Get in - get out, no personal touch, no listening to your concerns. Saw Dr. Yaffee yesterday for a hand issue and he was NONE of the above. Listened, explained my problem understandably, provided treatment in a very professional manner and had an excellent "bedside" manner. Great job!
in Elgin, IL |
This was my first time undergoing a surgery. Dr.Yaffe did endoscopic carpel tunnel release surgery and trigger thumb surgery on March 3, 2017. I was extremely nervous and had many concerns as I am an athlete and it's my right hand. Without hesitation he put my mind at ease. Explained in detail the procedures. He listened, did not rush me at any point, and let me ask all my questions. He has an excellent beside manner, and compassion for what he does. I will highly recommend Dr.Yaffe!

I had carpal tunnel outpatient surgery. This was my first time ever going for a surgery, so I was nervous. Dr. Yaffe answered all my questions and explained everything in great detail. The day of surgery he was very reassuring. Dr. Yaffe was thorough in his follow-up appointments. I was EXTREMELY satisfied with my procedure, it's outcome, and Dr. Yaffe's bedside manner. I would highly recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Yaffe did surgery on my 79 year old sister and 14 year old grandson and his rapport was excellent, age did not matter. He addressed all our concerns in language we could understand. He is genuine. professional. skilled, concerned and optimistic. The outcome of both surgeries was excellent and both are on their way to be whole again. He makes you feel important and his warmth and energy are contagious and you are assured the processes will be a success. Highly recommend him ,Great doctor!

I had a torn labrum in my shoulder, it was literally torn off the bone. I was in pain every day. I decided to have surgery to repair the torn labrum after consulting Dr. Yaffe. He was very knowledgeable and explained the procedure and what to expect post surgery. Every time I saw Dr. Yaffe he took time to answer all of my questions, I never felt rushed. The surgery was a success and I am so happy. I no longer have constant pain all day long. I can't thank Dr. Yaffe enough.

First broken bone I've had. Needless to say I was concerned & frightened. Dr. Yaffe put me at ease, explaining the surgery so that I could understand the procedure. Surgery went well, Dr. Yaffe suggested a therapist that I went to twice weekly for 16 weeks. Broke the arm November 22, 2015, surgery was December 11, 2015, therapy began December 29, 2015. Was released from therapy April 22, visited Dr.Yaffe April 25 and was also told I've healed well and everything has been completed.
in Palatine, IL |
I can't speak highly enough about D. Yaffee. He takes time to explain what your condition is, options to repair or correct it, answers all questions asked, and has a great bedside manner. Fortunately, the procedure on my hand was done in the office. Surgery was avoided. However, if it had been required I would totally trust him.
in Schaumburg, IL |
Very pleasant. Good bedside manner. Very positive and confident. Very easy to talk with.
