      Dr Pfeffer is an excellent and caring doctor. But nurse, Bonnie Wise is useless. Pre-op visit went fine. I needed to get clearance and EKG from my cardiologist before scheduling the colonoscopy. Spoke to Ms Wise a few days later; she was going to send me revised instructions. I called the next week; told she was reviewing EKG and would call me back. I made two more calls and was again told she would call back, allowing me to schedule. No letter ever rec'd; no call back. So never able to schedule

      I've scheduled colonoscopies using Dr. Pfeffer twice in the past three years and, on both occasions, I was required to first see a nurse practitioner ahead of the procedure. On both occasions, the nurse practitioner was a complete no show. Worse ye, the receptionists simply took my name until I waited long enough to ask what was going on, only to be told that the nurse simply wasn't there. I went back the first time but not this year. There are other doctors..

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
