Patient Ratings & Comments

  • Mar 4, 2019I greatly like the doctor. She was very engaged and caring, and knew what she was talking about. My issue is that after my appt, no one called me about my test results or told me that I had been proscribed a new medication. I happened to be in the patient portal, and by chance saw that the doctor had proscribed a new medication. Presumably based on my labs, but my test results still aren't available - and the doctor proscribed the new medication last week. I'll call today to see if I can get more information, and hopefully hear my diagnosis from a medical professional - rather than googling my new med to figure out what it treats.
  • Mar 1, 2019Excellent physician and staff.
  • Mar 1, 2019Dr. Gaffney is amazing! It had been more than four months since I saw her following a serious illness. She'd undoubtedly seen hundreds of patients in the interim. Yet, remarkably, Dr. Gaffney remembered minute details about my condition from last year and noted key improvements that encouraged me and give me confidence that she is incredibly sharp and paying attention to my health.
  • Mar 1, 2019Diagnosed me at my physical with a couple things, but didn't explain what one was or what to do about another and a couple things were listed as things discussed on my care summary that we didn't. Also talked to me like I have diabetes when I've never been officially diagnosed with it- confusing. But asked me to go down my entire list of concerns patiently, although didn't address all of them. But is very attentive and warm.
  • Feb 28, 2019Dr. Laura Gaffney is a wonderful person and so caring of her patients. She goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and she explains everything in a way that you can understand. I highly recommend her.
  • Feb 15, 2019Sometimes Dr. Gaffney speaks a little too fast I know she's in a hurry but she needs to slow down
  • Feb 14, 2019Dr. Gaffney is one of the smartest, kindest, caring doctors I know in the health field! I always recommend her to all people I know, especially women.
