    I have written a review of Dr.Eftaiha on a separate site.I would be nice to have all the reviews condensed in one place so future patients will have also a way of getting a little bit acquainted with the dr.they choose and perhaps help them make decisions regarding whose service they want to pursue.Dr.Eftaiha is fairly new ,about 2-3 years at the Coliseum Hospital where I work.I have had the privilege of working with his patients and I can say with certainty that he is compassionate to his patients, has great bedside manners, easy to work with and greatly respected by other staff that works with him.You have to earn that ,it is not given just because you are a dr.His skill as a surgeon is evident in the surgical outcome we see in his patients. In fairness, he did not know me other a PT that see his patients so this is not a bias review. Space dictates cutting my review ,suffice to say I never regretted the decision to seek his services following dx of cancer.

    I met Dr. Efaiha ( Dr. E to me) at the Coliseum ER in October of 2019. He was God sent, he saved my life. If not for him I would not be here to give this review. He is the kindness sweetest doctor. He told me he would be with me all the way, he has been and still is. He explained everything that he was going to do and gave my husband and myself the results. Very important he listens, I had lost faith in doctors because none would listen or do anything about my problem for at least 5 yrs. So when Isay he was God sent and he saved my life its as honest as I can get. I'm still not sure about other doctors but Dr. E is the very best.
