In short, Dr. Troffkin saved my life. He is simply matter of fact as it relates to your condition and your prognosis. Dr. Troffkin will not ask you about your day, your dog, your kids or what your favorite team is. He is all business. Having said that, this man and his staff care deeply for you. I found him to be very pleasant and his staff to include NP's as well as administrative to be fabulous to me and my wife. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this man to anyone.

Dr. Troffkin saved my daughter's life's back in 2008. She had chiari malformation and almost died. She code blue 5 times in one day. If it wasn't for God working through this Dr. My daughter wouldn't be here today or even able to walk. Actually she should be in a wheel chair but she's not. He's is a wonderful doctor and he was not rude to us. Remember if you want friendly always always show yourself friendly and be patient. May God Bless!

Dr Troffkins is very rude ,arrogant and pompous! I don't understand why Evansville would tolerate a man like this. Lack of choices ? I have a back injury that has changed my life. I ask a simple question before I can finish asking he would answer what he thought my question would be. He told me I am a prime candidate for a back fusion but he will not do the surgery if I don't quit smoking,no explanation no understanding.There is a lot more to my review I ran out of space you have been warned

I trust this man with my life. He did did surgery on my fathers brain and he did surgery on my wifes back. We highly recommend Dr Troffkin, he is excellent at what he does.

Very arrogant, no bed side manner! It is his way or no way the staff at the hospital did not even want to ask him anything or tell him anything bc how he is. I had surgery and was had been on a Ned for years he knocked me down to even lower then what I was taking before surgery, I call and talk to doc on call and she is very rude bc it's before hours and tells me take two what he gave me and hangs up!! They simply don't care in my option it's all about the money!!

Office staff was incredibly rude! Told us most people walking the street had same pain and problems and it was something we would just have to live with. The most arrogant and unfriendly doctor I've ever met. When asked if we could check in to chiropractic treatment he laughed and said it was pointless and would wouldn't work. Guess what... it did work! Do yourself a favor and find a different doctor!
in Vincennes, IN |
Horrible office staff. Reviews mri results with faxed imagines& judges weather they will see you off them. Has no education on certain illnesses regarding the head like chiari, gives you incorrect info and tells you not to research it. Drove 1 1/hrs twice for them to tell me once got there that he had to reschedule. Horrible! Disrespectful, time wasting, uneducated.
in Boonville, Indiana |
Very arrogant and totally the wrong diagnosis. He thought it was nerve damage from a Cath I had back in December and got that diagnosis from his PA. He NEVER once touched me or listened when I tried to explain where the pain was coming from. So Dr. Troffkin if you see this start checking your patients yourself and listening to them because you were SO wrong with my diagnosis. On April 14th,2016 I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, it started in my prostate and is in almost every bone in my body.
