- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Jaffe is probably 1 of the 2 family physicians I've had so far who are truly caring and dedicated to their patients. Family physicians have it tough as they have to balance revenues with the time they spend with their patients. She would allocate sufficient time in answering my questions and is honest about things she does or doesn't know about. She is prompt in calling me with test results. When I was in extreme pain, she made sure her assistant scheduled me for an mri a before I left her office. In the process, she kept on checking up on me to make sure I was as comfortable as I can be. Unfortunately, she just recently left her group and I have yet to find her new location.
I've been a patient of Dr. Jaffe for many years. She is a smart doctor, and her diagnoses have always been spot on. Her bedside manner is excellent, she is definitely a very caring doctor. I do find that the docs she refers me too are not that impressive. A great doctor has a great referral network. I'm still on the hunt for a doc with Dr. Jaffe's skills and a strong ability to refer to great specialists.
I went to Dr. Jaffe to get diagnosed regarding my problem. I'm a guy and my chest started to grow bigger in the nipple area like breasts and it even discharged some fluid. So I was very concerned and went to see Dr. Jaffe to find out what was wrong with me. She took some blood samples and told me she will get back to me with the results. She told me my hormones especially my testosterone was on the low side but not to worry and to come in for a re-visit in 6 months. I couldnt just stand and wait so I went to another doctor and that doctor recommended right away for me to see an endocrinologist since my hormones were not at the correct levels for a guy my age. It was only then that the endocrinologist the new doctor recommended told me after numerous tests that I had a growth on my adrenal gland that was causing my hormones to be out of whack. So within a couple of months I got my surgery to remove the growth, it turned out to be a size of a tennis ball. Who knows what would have happened if I listened to Dr. Jaffee. She didnt seem to care too much about my problem. It's a big deal to a guy when your muscular chest starts looking like boobs and discharging fluids. If you have normal cold and headaches, go to Dr. Jaffe cause any doctor can help you with these minor things but if you have a real medical condition that needs attention, DO NOT GO TO HER!!!
