Dr Stuart Geffner is a highly intelligent and compassionate surgeon. He’s a hard worker a leader in renal transplantation. He has worked his way up to chief of surgery at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. I have total confidence in his abilities. He has operated on me more than once. He and I have had “clutch” moments in the ER. He’s the best ! I would highly recommend Dr Geffner.
