Dr.Jaffee is AWESOME! He actually read over all medical history and promptly diagnosed & treated my grandmother. His background in Internal Medicine makes him a WONDERFUL GI!
Okemos, MI |
Very knowledgeable. Takes practical approach in addressing patient concerns. Takes time to explain. He wrote a book kind of "health manual for idiots" - about basic medical conditions for laymen. Very good book.
in Lansing, MI |
Everything went well. Very friendly doctor with good sense of humor in a colonoscopy situation. Procedure done at hospital. Wait time was as you would expect. Not bad experience though.
