He fixed three knees and one shoulder
My wife had both knees replaced and one rotator cuff operation. I had one knee replacement. All went well. Dr. Jaffe is a good no-nonsense surgeon. We both liked him. For all four OP’s he sent us home with Continuous Passive Movement (CPM) machines that moved the joints and made a world of difference in the outcome. Many surgeons don’t use CPM’s. I suspect that therapy means money and a CPM helps you recover quicker. Dr. Jaffe is not a touchy-feely guy. But he’s a surgeon who can give you the best possible outcome on your operation. I’d recommend him to anyone.

Doctor is unprofessional, not sympathetic to senior patients. He told a patient it was too early to call the in call doctors number so in pin the patient had to drive herself post op to the ER. Choose wisely when looking for a provider. Patients have a choice.

Dr. Jaffe is knowledge, kind and takes the time to listen to you. He has a great bed side manner and speaks in layman’s terms. I went to Dr. Jaffe when another doctor could not/would not listen to me. I ultimately needed a total knee replacement. Surgery went well. I was having other issues with the same leg and he sent me for an MRI of my lower back. The other issue is back related.

Spent 45 seconds with my knee before diagnosing osteoarthritis. Went for a second opinion and I have a tibial plateau fracture. He missed it on both the x-rays and the MRI.

Dr.Jaffe is the best! He has preform surgery on my left shoulder rotator cuff in 13, Surgery onQuad mussel on left knee in 15, and Rotator cuff surgery on right shoulder in 20. After required physical therapy after each surgery I am back 100 percent! Thank you for doing what you do! Highly recommended!

Dr. Matthew Jaffe was my surgeon for two total Knee Replacements in August 2019 & December 2019. Dr. Jaffe took the time to answer my questions during all of my visits making my surgery worry free both times. Dr. Jaffe was also available to answer my adult daughter’s and my husband’s questions if they accompanied me to a pre or post operation visit. Prospective patients will be happy to know they will be in out of office visits in a timely manner.

Dr Jaffe was the surgeon for my mother's knee replacement. She felt very comfortable with him and the surgery because Dr. Jaffe took the time to review the procedure and recovery in detail. He visited her many times in the hospital in the days following the surgery and called her during physical therapy to see if she was doing ok. She is now able to walk again like when she was younger.

I saw Dr. Jaffe to treat a very painful knee injury. He did not rush to suggest surgery and took his time explaining my options to me. I have seen many orthopedists over the years for various sports related injuries and he is by far the best around.

If I could give a minus! After a sports accident that sent me to the emergency room so I knew I had bruised ribs then after two days my foot and leg swelled up was three times the size ! I went to see him as a follow up that the emergency room recommended I do wish I had picked another doctor he didn’t even seem the least bit interested. All they wanted was 50 copay and the boot copay 89 never called to see why didn’t come back or if the swelling had went down. Worst experience ever in a doc office ,he acted like I was keeping him from something . Didn’t talk to me at all ! Seconds later he left . They made a return appointment which I canceled. Never heard back from guess they couldn’t care less

I visited Jaffe trying to get an answer on what was happening with my knee. He was not thorough at examining my knee and my complaints of discomfort and popping! Jaffe did not feel my knee as I bent it back and forth, instead he felt around the knee cap and after looking at the X-ray told me the best course would be a cortisone shot and he was sure that the injection would work. After a day I felt no difference and immediately contacted the office in which time he authorized an MRI. After three weeks of going back and forth with the office and my insurance company, Jaffe finally did a peer to peer with the insurance company at which time they denied the MRI? Not only did Jaffe lie about services, he incorrectly entered the dates wrong on the file and misread the X-ray! A second doctor noticed a deformity on the inside of my kneecap and that the kneecap was not tracking correctly, which cant be healed with a shot! Over $400 for Jaffe not doing his job! Don’t trust Jaffe/OrthoAtlanta
