Dr. Laufer is the best. He performed scoliosis surgery on my son and now he is straight as an arrow and 2 inches taller! After the initial soreness he was well on the way to a full recovery. Dr. Laufer is patient and polite and we never felt rushed in his office. He always made us feel special and was careful to answer questions that we had. At one point my son had a rash on his back when we got home, and the doctor got right on the phone and talked us through it and made recommendations for cream. We recommended him very highly.
From the first moment I meet Dr. Laufer I knew I found the right doctor to treat my daughters Scoliosis. His bedside manner is great, he speaks to the children, relates to them and cares about their progression. Unfortunately my daughter needed spinal fusion surgery and I new we had the best to perform this procedure. He has inspired us to have founded a Non-Profit organization Cheer Dream Scoliosis Fundation to raise awareness about Scoliosis.
I just loved Dr laufer. He was wonderful to me and my 16 year old daughter explaining the condition of her spine and how the surgery would go. He answer all our question and made us feel better about the surgery.told my daughter it's ok cry!! He had great bedside manners he was very caring.And he did a great job on her back her scar looks pretty good too!!
