How likely are you to recommend Dr. Aferzon?

(Select your rating)
I have had the worst physicians over the last three years that were unprofessional on levels; not listening, not caring about what you are telling them; mocking; condescending, yelling at me; yelling at me because the previous doctor was a butcher; blackmailing and blackballing me throughout the medical community; violated probation; and most of them have been reported to CT. Dept. of Health; HIPPA, Elder Law violations. Dr. Aferzon was sent to me from heaven because he is none of the above. I am scheduled for two surgeries one for my neck and the other for my lower back. I have so much blind trust in his capabilities and skills, wherein the past physicians did not bestow any confidence in me. Dr. Aferzon's Bio., is so very impressive take the time to read it. This is the only doctor that I will ever recommend for neurosurgery.
