Patient Comments (1)
Chicago, IL |
I was highly impressed with Dr. Valfer's entire staff, as well as with him. I went to him for a second opinion, on a medical condition. He answered all of my questions, thoroughly, was patient, kind, extremely knowledgeable, and softspoken. I would recommend him to any female seeking an OBGYN. The topper was when he checked on me to see if I was doing alright, a few hours later. Dr. Valfer truly cares about his patients.
