Dr. Jaffe is the best doctor I could have ever gotten for my daughter. it is with a heavy heart that I have to find someone in [...]. hopefully I can find someone that cares as much as him. The medical resident in her last year, [...] is going to be a lot like Dr. Jaffe, she was very caring during this appointment.

dr has now seen both my children over the span of several years. he's a great doctor and very caring but can have an abrupt and condescending bedside manner at the beginning of each visit. he's slow to warm but I respect his expertise. just wish he was as kind at the beginning of the visit as he is by the end.
