Dr. Pfeiffer is not only THE Best vascular doctor! He is sensitive and caring about the patient. My husband had a stroke in May of 2018 and Dr. Pfeiffer was the one that was called to check out my husband and I cannot express how much gratitude I have towards Dr. Pfeiffer. If you need a vascular doctor please give him a chance he is the best in the field. Thank you, Dr. Pfeiffer!

I am an ex paramedic and familiar with the medical community. Having cardiac stent placement several years ago in the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl gave me an idea of the professionalism and expertise in this area. On Friday February 1, 2019 I had an angiogram performed by Dr. Pfeiffer at the Dothan, Al. Heart and Surgery Center. His attention to detail, knowledge and professionalism along with his entire staff far exceeded the Mayo Clinic experience. Top level care without compromise.

Does not have any bedside manner my husband fell after a below the knee amputation and his response was "oh well it will have to heal that way" he had infection with no antibiotics I will drive to Tallahassee or Georgia before seeing him again. He removed my husbands toe also and he wound up sepsis. I have witnessed him yelling at patients family and at his staff very much unprofessional and does not care!

I self referred to dr pfeiffer on the advice of my sister. While I initially was inclined to agree with the patient who gave him one star on my second visit I had to remember that on my initial visit he was very attentive and yet matter of fact. In retrospect I want a physician, especially a vascular surgeon, to be passionate about his patients and to fight for me no matter how much he forgets from last visit. I believe he is all of these things and I hope to come back with 5 stars in a year. ??

Very dissatisfied with this physician. No bedside manners whatsoever. He tells you one thing and does the complete opposite. I feel very sorry for the nice staff who have to work with this man. I did not choose to see this physician but was referred to him by another physician. Never again.
