Wonderful experience. Very patient with this patient. Honed in on the problem very quickly while he explained everything so clearly, providing me with good documentation of my problem as well as a course of action going forward. Right now I am filled with hope that in the near future under his care, I will be of alleviating myself of one of my greatest obstacles to getting a decent nights sleep as well as the chronic daytime.

I saw Dr. Yaffe a few years ago and was very pleased with the services I received. Went back today for a different issue and, again, was very pleased. He takes time to understand your condition and explain the issue and possible treatments. Staff members are also very friendly.

Dr Yaffe is both efficient and very pleasant. He explains your condition thoroughly as well as treatment options. If it involves an injection, as mine did, he’s as considerate and gentle as possible. The office staff and assistants are also welcoming and efficient, and there’s very little wait time. Highly recommended.

Dr. Jaffe was professional, had a wonderfully pleasant demeanor, and was fantastic at using all tools to his avail to diagnose my wrist condition. He was through and down-to-Earth in explaining the findings-not rushed or pompous as some doctors can be-as well as treatment options. I would highly recommend him to all my friends and family.

I broke my arm and wrist in a roller skating incident a day before my birthday. I didn't choose Dr. Yaffe, the emergency room at the hospital did and I can't thank them enough. Surgery on my birthday was mostly a blurr. What I DO remember is how reassuring Dr, Yaffe was before and after surgery. These were my first fractures in my 66 years. Dr. Yaffe's bedside manner is top drawer which I consider second in importance. First you ask?? His surgical ability, of course! I had broken my arm close to the elbow and Dr. Yaffe had to install a cage in my elbow area to put this Humpty Dumpty's arm back together. Dr. Yaffe's expertise gave me the ability, along with lots of physical therapy, to recover completely and regain full use of my right arm. If you require surgery and are looking for a doctor that you can feel comfortable with, Dr Yaffe is your man. Want the surgery done right the first time? Dr. Yaffe is your man. You won't be disappointed.

I would highly recommend Dr. Yaffe and his team! I am an active 30 year old who has luckily never had any serious injuries or surgery. I broke my thumb on my dominate hand and that’s how I met Dr. Yaffe. I was really nervous about surgery, but Dr Yaffe took the time to explain in detail why I needed surgery and everything I should expect. I appreciate Dr Yaffe’s personal approach and I am happy to say that his service was the best part of one of my worst days. I am now fully healed and very thankful I had such a great doctor to help me out.

Dr. Yaffe is easy to talk to, a good listener, and takes a conservative approach. The receptionists are generally not great, and one in particular gave me a really hard time during check-in. She could use some training in customer service. That wouldn't deter me from seeing Dr. Yaffe again, though.

Dr. Yaffe was very down to earth and easy to talk too. This is my fifth trigger for and no what to expect after receiving a cortisone shot.

- Oct 25, 2018

Dr. Jaffe’s expert care in office and in surgery has given me a fully functional right wrist and tendon. His anatomical explanations at visits assist with education but are not confusing. He educates and is extremely detailed. His bedside manner is compassionate, caring, and evaluative. He is conservative to protect the patient but not limiting. He is beyond what a doctor and surgeon should be.

My complaint of many Doctors is what I call the "rush Job". Get in - get out, no personal touch, no listening to your concerns. Saw Dr. Yaffee yesterday for a hand issue and he was NONE of the above. Listened, explained my problem understandably, provided treatment in a very professional manner and had an excellent "bedside" manner. Great job!

Being a 17 yr veteran in the dog grooming industry, I came face to face with one of my worst fears. The overuse of my right hand due to the continual use of scissoring and clipping dogs down finally took its tole. I thought my career was over. Dr. Yaffe went in and not only fixed the problem, but reversed the damage that was done. He has added at least 20 yrs back to my hand. And for that I will always be eternally grateful. This place and the people are truly a blessing, I got my life back.

I had a torn labrum in my shoulder and opted for surgery after consulting Dr. Yaffe. He fully explained the procedure and what to expect post-surgery with recovery time. I was having constant pain every day prior to surgery. Now 3 months after surgery I no longer have constant pain. I am recovering still, so there is occasional pain, but nothing like before. With physical therapy I have about 90% of my motion back. Every appointment with Dr. Yaffe is never rushed, he fully explains what to expect, and answers all questions. I can't thank Dr. Yaffe enough! I would highly recommend him.

My before and after pictures of my hands show my miraculous results! Dr. Yaffe injected my hands with Radiesse and they look 15 years younger. It gave me a real sense of comfort to have this procedure done by an Orthopedic Hand Surgeon. No pain ... all gain! The results were immediate and I will no longer hide my hands. Thank you Dr. Yaffe ... highly skillful, gentle and so nice!

Dr. Yaffe is a miracle worker! He completely cured me of my carpal tunnel with a very simple procedure! After my surgery I had a completely new and improved hand the next day! Because he is such a miracle worker I'm having my other hand done next month!

Dr. Yaffe always takes his time explaining everything when I see him. I appreciate his thoroughness and also the fact that he listens and addresses all my concerns. He has a great personality too and I've recommended him to others. He performed surgery on my hand for carpel tunnel and it turned out well.

Dr. Yaffe is straight & to the point. He is efficient in his diagnosis and recommended treatments. He was great about taking caring of me quickly & getting me into surgery right away to address my broken wrist.

Cathy O

had been suffering from wrist pain for months. I had seen other doctors who told me that the only solution was surgery, this was unacceptable to me so I decided to get another opinion. After seeing Dr. Yaffe I was diagnosed correctly, and a small in office procedure was done. My wrist feels great, and I haven't had any problems since!


14 months post shoulder surgery. Dr. Yaffe is very professional and provides a comfortable experience for his patients. My recovery was extensive because of my injuries, but at 14 months post surgery, I am pain-free and have normal shoulder and arm motion. I would recommend Dr. Yaffe 100% of the time. Thank you!

Gary P

He was awesome and explained things in terms that i could understand. Compassionate & caring. Highly recommend him for all your broken wrist needs.

From day one I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Yaffe and how reassuring he was in regards to the surgery he performed on my finger. With every office visit he was very professional and comforting at the same time. Dr. Yaffe is a great asset to your office

Dr. Yaffe and his nurse are both very nice. Dr. Yaffe has great bedside manner and takes the time to explain what exactly is going on and why and does not rush through your appointment. I am so grateful that I found him as a doctor. Thank you for the great care you have given me.

Doctor very very knowledgeable and stayed to answer all questions and went out of his way to provide recommendations of other doctors to help with my particular needs. Very very professional all the way from entering to exiting!! Thank you very much!!

Jeanne A.

Dr. Yaffe explained the procedure to me in a way that a lay person understood. This is the first broken bone I experienced, so I was very concerned regarding the surgery that was to be done. The procedure went well. I am now in therapy. Dr. Yaffe has seen me twice since surgery and mentioned I've healed well. I would recommend your office to anyone that required orthopedic care. I am pleased with both the doctor and office staff. They were all extremely helpful and friendly.
