My husband had shattered his wrist. Dr. Diefendorf was in Palo Alto attending to two different patients. He called me from the surgery room at the hospital ER to see how we both were doing. I have never had any doctor go above & beyound to want to know what we needed & what he could do to make us calm. He even called our home that night to talk to my husband. Our office experience with him was again unbelievable. His assistant at the front desk Lana wax amazing as well. If u k ow what a dry sense of humor is, u will love Lana. If not, that's something u will have to come to terms within u. But amazing doctor. Would refer anyone to see him cuz not all doctors are compassionate. Manx not all care. They r just there to do the job.

Waited over an hour with no explanation or apology

Besides the ridiculously long wait of over an hour with no explanation or apology (I decided to wait rather than spend my time away from work to come back again), they said I should have gotten the Xrays from the hospital and brought them (which no one told me although they said they did). I had expected the primary care doctor to have sent the Xrays on to them.
