I thought long and hard before responding to the request for a review of my visit to Dr Joseffer’s. From initial contact to the time of my appointment the office staff could not have been more receptive, pleasant, helpful, or professional. I am sure that the staff didn’t realize what had happened during my visit with Dr. Joseffer. I had an appointment with Dr Joseffer because of pains I was experiencing in my feet and legs, which based on my detailed observations, seemed related to my back. In my professional life, I was a scientific researcher, experienced in drawing conclusions based on a detailed analysis of relationships between various facts and observations. By no means do I consider myself as knowledgeable as a physician, but I would think that a physician would want to hear a full description of his patient’s experiences before making a diagnostic supposition. Initially I gave an overall review of my situation to Dr. Joseffer and then began to provide more details of my

Dr. Joseffer is truly pleasure to work with, he communicates your conditions and options well. I am pleased to say I had Dr Joseffer as my surgeon for my lower lumbar surgery. He is truly skilled in this art/profession, humble, polite and soft spoken. I will select Dr. Joseffer again, if I need to go for another one.

This was my first visit to Dr. Joseffer. Office was clean, efficiently run, and COVID-compliant. Staff is very helpful with everything, from scheduling appointments and handling paperwork to directing me to the office when I got lost in the development. My appointment was handled on time with hardly any wait. The doctor took time to ask questions, review all my information and listen to me before making any suggestions. His advice was conservative - he did not push for surgery but wants to follow up while I try other treatments. Overall very satisfied with the visit.

I had disc surgery with Dr. Joseffer in February. He was an extraordinary Surgeon. I came in with so much pain that I could not walk 3 steps without stopping and rubbing the pain radiating down my leg. I walked out of the hospital with that pain eliminated. After 6 months of agony, his skilled hands fixed the problem.

Dr Joseffer did a spinal fusion on me in the fall of 2007. I complained of pain, until the doctor moved his practice, with no relief. After 13 years of debilitating pain, physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic treatment, and various other doctors appointments and procedures, I had a spinal stimulator implanted. Problem solved. I can now load my dishwasher from a standing position. Now if I could get back just 10% of the money I've spent the past 13 years (not to mention my time), on a failed surgery, I would be set for life. Would I recommend Dr Joseffer to a friend or family? Not even for their dog.

Dr. Joseffer has been following up with Me on my back issue and since we are in the middle of a pandemic he has referred me to another specialist for shots and physical therapy. He is thorough and answers all my questions. I am never rushed when I see him.

Dr. Seth Joseffer is the only neurosurgeon i have had -for lower back spinal issues. He is so attentive - listens to what you tell him symptom wise - puts calls on hold if feasible so as not to interfere with the appointment. Never feel rushed. Very caring, polite, amicable physician and my go to physician for any issues to do with my back. I will NOT go to any other doc for my back/spine at this point - he has 100% rating in my opinion! Highly rated and such a knowledgeable physician!
