      in Middletown, DE |
      Dr. Pfaff was thorough with the exam. I needed an ACDF and he explained the surgery in detail and explained it in a way that I understood. I was apprehensive about the surgery but he had an excellent way of putting me at ease. I am 100% satisfied with the outcome from surgery and have since recommended him to others.
