    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.

Two Stars

I have had two experiences. Both times the wait time to be seen was over an hour. Waiting room was standing only. How can that be? The office staff does not make any eye contact as they know the scheduling is a mess. Once in the exam room another 15 minute wait. Was told to go for an MRI, had it done the next day and called the office three times for the results. No return call and it was a Friday so had to wait until Monday. Being that most of the patients are pediatric you would expect an atmosphere of kindness and caring.....I will be going elsewhere in the future. The exam room I was in needed to be painted.

Would Not Recommend

Horrible interaction with most members of the staff except radiology. The receptionist and billing ladies were rude and unhelpful. Dr. Gaffney has TERRIBLE bedside manners, he rushed through the diagnosis, and quite frankly insulted me and my nephew. Completely unprofessional and most importantly had ZERO compassion. Would never recommend, will never go back.

Botched Surgery, Horrible Follow Up

He incorrectly preformed my ACL surgery, a common procedure. When I noticed something was wrong in my recovery he disappeared and I was shuttled around through the doctors in the practice who refused to acknowledge there was something wrong. Even after an MRI they either were not able or did not identify the problem. I had to go elsewhere at the instance of my physical therapist to get the problem identified and fixed through further surgery.
