Dr Haifer immediately put me at ease as he took the time to listen and thoroughly answered all of my questions and concerns while explaining the procedures and outcomes.
His unexpected phone calls and emails left me knowing I was receiving the best expert medical care possible.
I can not recommend Dr Haifer enough.
