    I have had two shoulder surgeries with Dr. Banffy. He is an outstanding surgeon who has become an expert in his field. He is the only orthopedist I will ever go to...I trust him with my children; that should mean something. Plus his staff is extremely professional and nice to deal with for any matter!

    Have had both my shoulders repaired by Dr Banffy. He's a rockstar. He takes his time to explain the situation in words a lay person can understand. He did my left shoulder about 3 years ago and my right one this year. Totally trust worthy, and very talented surgeon.

    I have been very pleased with Dr. Banffy and his crew. I had my ACL replaced and although it is just 2 weeks after surgery, I am doing nicely. I am thankful for their care.

    Dr. Banffy was attentive and I felt confident I was in good hands with him and his team at Kerlab-jobe.

    Dr Banffy did a partial knee replacement for my husband. I am a surgical nurse and cannot begin to say how much I admire his professionalism and quiet confidence. He made us feel comfortable and confidant in our decision. We had several "blips" in my husband's treatment at the hospital that became non-issues. He handled everything. Period.

    I trust Dr. Banffy implicitly & would highly recommend him. I had a full knee replacement & need another; I won't let anyone but Banffy perform it. His staff is terrific & they handle every detail w/ incredible efficiency & kindness. Adam, P.A., doesn't rush you & patiently responds to all questions. Banffy's scheduler, Nicolle, is wonderful, reliable & handles everything w/ grace. Team member Justin is kind & a delight to deal w/. Banffy & his team will be my "go to's" for orthopedic issues.

    From the initial consultation to the date of surgery and follow ups, the entire team made my experience at the Kerlan Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic as simple and as pleasant as one could expect. Everyone was extremely helpful and courteous from day one. Dr Banffy has put together an incredibly professional staff and I would recommend his entire team to anyone.
