I've been seeing Dr. Deffer for a long time due to shoulder joint issues related to chemo therapy received 8 years ago. it will be a chronic and life long issue and I couldn't have chosen a better doctor. The best in our area. cares about his patients tremendously and a awesome surgeon. wouldn't want anyone else.
