Surgeon: Joseph Afram
I was very much impressed with Dr. Afram and his office staff. Everyone was friendly,caring, knowledgable and willing to spend time answering questions. Dr. Afram very much emphasizes aftercare with regular office visits and group meetings with the staff psychologist and nutritionist. Dr. Afram is a most caring physician and always returns phone calls in a timely manner. He and his staff are genuinely interested in your well being and are always available. I felt that I received superior care surgically and that excellent level of care continues through the structured aftercare program available. I think I would prefer surgical competence to good bedside manner but I never had to choose between the two; Dr. Afram has both. My experience to date has been very positive. These are my personal experiences which , of course, do not guarantee anyone else's future experiences.
