After being in pain for months & seeing 2 other doctors. Dr. Raphaeli actually took the time to exam me. He was very patient, nice and took his time. He gave me different options and told me exactly what I had. I am so glad that I found him. His office staff at the Chasewood location is very nice.

He inspires confidence in a successful surgical outcome because he explains why something is done. His attitude is collaborative rather than dictatorial.
