Dr. Pfiffner explained my results to me and made sure I understood everything before I left his office. He took the time to show me my MRI images on his computer. Once he seen the worry in my face, he assured me I would be ok and he would monitor my cyst so nothing bad would happen. Dr. Pfiffners confidence, and knowledge eased my anxiety and for that I’m extremely grateful. Thank you!
