I was referred to Dr. Jaffee and met with him and Blanca last year. I have one eye that has a vey droopy lid that affects my vision. We scheduled surgery and through a comedy of errors from the surgical center we kept having to put it off. I was told that time that all I would be responsible for was my Medicare copay. Had to schedule another visit to recheck the eye so surgery could finally be done. This time I was told in addition to my copay I would have to pay an additional amount to remove the skin because that is considered cosmetic. Being on a very strict social security income I cannot afford this extra cost. What I did not understand if the skin has to be cut, why isn't it trimmed and stitched ----- why would any doctor just leave it hanging there? I then checked with my insurance and was told that if the condition was affecting my vision, etc ---- it would be considered as a medical need and not cosmetic. Anyway, on my visits Dr. Jaffee and the young lady with him were very nice (the office staff was too) but as far as type of surgeon, I can't say since procedure not done.
I am so pleased that a friend referred me to Dr. Jaffe to get a second opinion for eye surgery. It didn't take rocket science to figure out that his options were much better, and post surgery- overall an A+ experience! Dr.Jaffe and his terrific office staff are pros, and I am happy with my fantastic results.
Staff was rude and very unprofessional. I'd take my business elsewhere.
Because you have written the same review on several sites, we will post the same response to each: We are sorry that you feel this way and assure you the staff did not intend to be rude or unprofessional. This was an insurance related matter that we would be happy to discuss with you in further detail.Please feel free to contact the office.
