The general consensus is that Dr. Neil Troffkin is one of the worst behaving physicians at Deaconess. Even the staff that work with him at NSC comment about how rude, condescending, and arrogant he is. He only gets away with his poor behavior because of the money he brings into the Health System....Read More

Extremely intelligent! Confident. If anyone is cutting on my head he is. Not sure I would want to go and have conversation over dinner, but I trust him. He will listen to you and actually look at you.
