This experience was most satisfactory.

Dr. Pfaellfe was very thorough for my finger examination. He answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed. I was impressed that he ordered more x-rays than the one I has in the ER since it clearly showed that he cared about even a minor situation. Also, he was very personable.

I have seen this provider in the past for similar problems. Surgical intervention was required and both times I had very good results. Would definitely recommend this provider to others.
