Thoroughly happy with overall staffing, professionalism and quality of expertise and care throughout my initial consultation, pre-surgery, surgery and post-OP visits. I felt comfortable, listened to and satisfied with all communications and info regarding my extensive shoulder injuries, gameplan to alleviate the issues and how to get my shoulder back to a near normal condition. The confidence and compassion exhibited by Dr. Pifer and his staff were one that left me feeling that this entire procedure would go quite well and that I virtually had nothing to worry about. Dr. Pifer is a wizard with shoulders and I'm glad I chose him to take care of the many years of damage that my shoulder has endured along the way as a baseball pitcher, body builder and material arts practitioner. Thank you, Dr. Pifer and staff for this great experience!! R Webb

Our 15 year old daughter had a tear in her right shoulder which was causing her pain & not so good range of motion. 2 weeks ago Dr. Pifer did her Surgury. She’s finally now on the road to recovery. Dr. Pifer has a great bed side manner! He’s very easy to talk to & understand. He made us feel very comfortable. Would highly recommend him.

From the beginning Dr. Pifer was very confident about his ability to basically reconstruct my shoulder with multiple issues. He was very reassuring he’s the best, and now after seeing the results of his skills I believe him. For what it’s worth, I have had 2 shoulder surgeries by the Oakland Raiders team orthopedic Dr., and I would choose Pifer any day anytime.

Dr. Pifer has been a terrific doctor. He diagnosis the problem quickly and explains the solution and processes very precisely. I felt I was in good hands from the beginning. His honesty and surgical skills have helped me heal back from a car accident injury. Remember to be patient with your body because some areas will not heal very fast, but you can't go wrong with Dr. Pifer. He and his friendly staff will definitely help you get back to being active and your body moving just like before your injury or better.

My son dislocated his kneecap on his HS graduation night. We were able to quickly get an appointment with Dr. Pifer and we could not be happier with him. He was very clear explaining the injury and what to expect. He made us both comfortable, as well as confident about treatment and what to look out for moving forward. My son said he was his favorite doctor and he trusted him to take care of any other injuries an active young guy might encounter. Additionally all the staff, and his assistant are amazing. They were helpful and patient and everyone was very upbeat and encouraging. I highly recommend Dr. Pifer and his staff.

Dr. Pifer and his staff are the most wonderful people I have had to deal with to my journey of cancer and the after effects in the past three and a half years. Whenever I have a question or a concern dr. Pifer and his staff would get back to me right away and this made me feel so comfortable and I did not have to worry about my questions or concerns. Everything was explained to me before surgery and after surgery. The emails I would get regarding my recovery what's the best it made me feel very cared for. I would recommend dr. Pifer and his staff anybody who needed any help with a shoulder injury they are the best.

I injured my left shoulder in a fall during a recent vacation and was referred to Dr. Pifer by my primary physician. Dr. Pifer was very thorough with his exam and offered the necessary MRI scan to confirm the condition of the shoulder. He was polite, professional, and easy to talk to. He offered physical therapy by a provider of my choice to follow up on proper therapy for the injured shoulder.
