The front desk is very matter of fact. There is little warmth or concern about the patient. The radiology technician was rude . The doctor was courteous, kind and very complete in his review of both my problems, solutions and after-care.

Dr. Haffenreffer recently performed a right leg TKR on me. During the pre-op visits through the procedure and through the post-op visits, Dr. Haffenreffer; exuded confidence, was very honest, very informative, responded to all my questions, made me feel confident and comfortable to the fact that I would, and have progressed through the process successfully. I thank him for his candid honesty and for imparting to me confidence, and, empowering me with the strength to move forward.

Complaining of severe hip pain I received no X-ray and was dismissed in 2 minutes being told to take ibuprofen. Four years later I needed a hip replacement due to CAM deformity which any X-ray would have shown and likely saved my hip.

I went to Dr Haffenreffer for a follow-up to surgery only because he was covering for my surgeon who was on vacation. He entered the room and asked why I was there and what I had done. That was disturbing. I told him why and he removed my stitches (no handwashing - no gloves, and proceeded to put my foot in a non-walking brace for plantar fasciitiis. I had fusion surgery and told him my doctor wanted me to be in a hard cast. He ignored me and when I insisted he said to call my doctor when he got back. I was stunned! My outcome was not good and now I need the surgery repeated.

I fell on ice fifteen years ago and Dr. Haffenreffer repaired my very badly fractured ankle through surgery and the placement of a plate and pins. I have never had a single problem with the ankle, and it has been strong and reliable.Dr. Haffenreffer did an excellent job in repairing it. I highly recommend his excellent skills.

I went to this doctor with very bad knee pain. He never examined my knee the first time and told me that I needed to buy new shoes and wear an arch support. He gave me a sheet with exercises that I was to do twice daily to exhaustion using weights. I returned in two weeks due to increased pain, and he ordered an x-ray (not MRI) and told me that I needed to pick up the exercising and lose a little weight. He said if in one month I was not better, then he would consider an MRI. Since I was suffering so much, I chose to go to my family physician who DID examine my knee and he ordered an MRI that day. I have a tear of the anterior horn of the lateral miniscus. Unfortunately I will have to have surgery to repair it. Now I have to find a good ortho doctor to do the work. The manner in which this doctor treated my complaints was totally unacceptable and I hope to save others from having the same experience. The exercises actually made my knee worse. I am sure there are many good ortho doctors you could choose and please avoid Dr Haffenreffer at all costs!
