One of the best experiences with a doctor in a very long time. Dr. Orfahli was referred to my mother and within a couple of days she had an appointment. Dr. Orfahli spent A LOT of time with my mother. He was very attentive and truly listened to her. Her not only addressed her physical issues, but more importantly her mental concerns as well. He took the time to fully understand her family dynamics while learning more about his patient. He truly CARED!
