Verified Patient Reviews
My first visit with Dr. Siefferman was great. He was extremely professional, attentive and caring. I felt that I had his undivided attention from the moment our appointment started and never felt rushed. He was extremely thorough and generous with his knowledge, he listened patiently to my medical history and answered all of my questions. His front office was highly efficient, welcoming and gracious. I look forward to my next appointment!
What a wonderful team of caregivers, Not just diagnoses, but options, solutions, compassion and supportive acts & thoughts. This is the sort of experience that one hopes for. Woke up feeling optimistic about my medical issues for the first time in a year.
One of the top 2 or 3,doctors I have ever seen...
Answered all questions patiently and helped me understand what was going on with my hip. I'd definitely go back
Once again, an accessible, professional and dedicated physician who is exceptionally perceptive and well informed . I can't recommend Dr. Siefferman highly enough.
Visiting Dr. Siefferman is always a pleasure. He shows concern, asks questions and, most importantly, listens and hears what you have to say. No wait and I never feel rushed. Highly recommend.
Dr. Siefferman is top notch. He is a true rarity among physicians. His integrated clinical approach is guided by his commitment to open communication and collaboration with his patients. The resultant respect inspires such dignity, confidence, optimism, and courage, that it is intrinsically curative in contributing to recovery. I am very thankful to have found him.
Always friendly and informative. Answers all questions. I would recommend him to anyone who is experiencing pain. He knows his stuff but understands that I know my body. He doesnt negate what I am saying like some other doctors i have encountered.
First visit was today. I will be going back, no hesitation. It may take several treatments to achieve adequate pain relief, and that works for me. What Dr. Seifferman gave me today, after 3 1/2 years of seeing "specialists", is hope. The staff is very friendly and approachable. Office is inviting and immaculate. A++ gina I
Excellent dr who take his time with his patients and fup with them with a fast and grate service
Dr. Siefferman is attentive, extremely helpful, and thorough. I got the sense he truly cared about my issues, took them seriously, and had carefully thought through a detailed treatment plan. He spent quite a long time going over my questions and explaining details. I highly, highly recommend him as a doctor!
Finally a Dr. Who seems to "actually care" if patients get relief or are in pain. Very refreshing!
I've had two appointments in the past for Radiesse, this will be the third year. Not that people are supposed to notice you've had work done, but my friends have all complimented on how good I look after I return to California:) I have been to other doctors in the past 15 years for other fillers, and this one seems to last longer than many. Dr Siefferman is an excellent doctor, very patient and able to practice this procedure with authority and understanding, great bedside manner. I highly recommend him.
Dr Siefferman is very professional.and human. He cares about your health.i like him very much
Dr. Siefferman was friendly, informative and professional. He addressed all my concerns and answered all my questions. I will certainly be seeing him for any future issues.
The experience with Dr. Siefferman is completely different from any other doctors in amazingly great way. He is a doctor who genuinely cares for his patients. I have a spinal nerve problem and my pain is in all over my body. Before Dr.Siefferman, no doctor could fix my pain. I was in pain, miserable and depressed. Dr.Siefferman takes time to examine,listens to whatever I want to say patiently..and gives me variety course of treatment plans(medications,injection,PT,etc..) Great things is if I have a question or problem I can always e-mail him and he usually replays back right away.. No doctor does it!!! He ordered physical therapy as a part of treatment, and he often communicates with my therapist so my PT progressed well. Now thanks to Dr.Siefferman I got my life back! I feel better and better everyday.
He was very professional and explained everything in simple, kind terms. He felt terribly that the wait was so long, and seemed a bit stressed.
He's super attentive and explains things super clearly. Highly recommend him.

I have been dealing with severe headaches since 2001 and he's the first doctor that's really trying to find the right medication to help me I appreciate him so much there should be a lot more physicians like Dr. Siefferman.
I was very impressed with Dr. Siefferman. He took his time, listened and then explained his thinking and plan in great detail. I needed a couple of injections in my hand and he did them with great skill.
He spent 40 minutes checking me and answering my questions. Very thorough and super nice.
Doctor Siefferman was patient and considerate, he answered all of my questions thoroughly. His excellent bedside manner and technique made individualized care a reality.
I have been a patient of Dr Siefferman for the past year and my experience has been AWESOME! An accident years ago left me with multiple spinal injuries and severe chronic pain / physical neurological weaknesses. Before seeing Dr. S. I had already had Spinal Fusion surgery, Arthroscopic Spinal surgery, many many Interventional procedures and tried "every" pain medication regimen out there. I was using Docs. at NYC's best hospitals / Pain Mgmt. groups, yet was still on a slew of pain medications and still in terrible pain. During my 1st visit Dr. Siefferman suggested I try to wean off the mix of pain meds I was taking to see what would happen. I could stop reducing the meds at anytime if I felt things were getting worse, after so many years on meds. (and still in pain) it made sense to try something else. He said he would be available via phone, text & email 24/7 to insure I was comfortable (he was). We would replace the meds with many types of interventional procedures, physical therapy and other non drug modalities - the results have been AMAZING! Dr. S. spends 30 - 40 minutes with me during office visits and he responds to my emails / phone calls promptly. He is patient, engaged and is concerned with all aspects of my health. He has referred me to other health professionals and all of the practitioners have been really solid as well. When I have seen him during pain flair ups he gave me (trigger point, "anesthetic" injections) in the office that provided immediate relief. If pain has put a crimp in your life reach out to Dr. Siefferman, he offers "concierge" medical service and a huge toolbox of treatments. Dr. S has improved the quality of my life immeasurably!
provided insightful information and a suggested treatment plan
I have seen many doctors for an extremely painful condition and was losing faith with the medical options as I wasn't really getting any relief from anyone. Dr. Siefferman was the first doctor I saw who I felt like truly GOT IT about how much pain I was in and also really cared about getting me feeling better ASAP. He offered medications and procedures that made a difference. Most importantly, he followed up with me repeatedly via email to make sure I was ok, help arrange follow-up care, etc. I haven't had a doctor that attentive and thoughtful ever before. This is truly personal care which isn't often accessible to everyone - I cant' recommend him enough.
The doctor is wonderful. He took the time to explain my condition and go into different treatments so I could decide which one was best for me. Aside from that, he is always available if the need arises.
A very professional and polite doctor that could give an answer to any question I asked which makes me feel comfortable under his treatment .Highly recommended !!
Dr. Siefferman is one of the most well informed, committed Doctors I have had the honor to meet in my lifetime. Anyone who finds him in this world/maze of Doctors is and will be extremely lucky to receive the benefit of his skills and knowledge.
Dr. Siefferman is always very attentive and takes the time to listen to and address my individual concerns and needs. Highly recommended.
First visit excellent - yes I would suggest him to a friend. Ask me more after a few visits. So far so good. I'm impressed.
I am glad that I got to see Dr Siefferman. I have been suffering my right shoulder pain for a while and couldnt figured out why and what to do. I have been going to physiotherapies but after two months, I am just disappointed as it seems to me either they could not find the real solution or the process is just too slow - I start to think they just want me to go back all the time. I went to see Dr Siefferman and just after a thorough examine on my shoulders and musles, he pointed out the problem is in the right rotater cuff and all the factors that could have contributed - swimming, overuse of the right shoulder etc. ALL OF THEM are exactly right - I do swim religiously and I tend use my right hand more during excercise etc. Dr gave me very detailed advice as to what to do/not to do at the gym or home to relieve it, he even gave me those strengthening instructions which are way much more detailed than what I usually learn from my physio. He said since it is relatively mild I do not need needles for now (or expensive things like that) but just focus on the strengthening routine. I really appreciate his expertise and honesty. I highly recommend Dr Siefferman.
Friendly, courteous, professional, experienced, and did a wonderful job. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Siefferman has developed a treatment plan for my headaches which has resulted in a drastic reduction in both frequency and severity. I highly recommend Dr. Siefferman for anyone struggling with migraines or other chronic headaches.
Dr. Siefferman was excellent. Very compassionate and knowledgeable. Only mix up was he was supposed to be on my insurance and then turned out not to be. Otherwise, glad I found him.
Excellent - have been having problems for almost a year and have not found anyone that has helped at all....Dr. Siefferman was extremely knowledgeable, listened to what was going on and actually spent a good 45 minutes evaluating the areas of concern and after one treatment I'm already feeling quite a bit better. Very highly recommended.
Dr. Jason Siefferman is extremely personable, considerate, knowledgeable and careful when dealing with his patients. I highly recommend his services for patients looking to treat their pain or improve aesthetic features.
Very happy with my appointment. The doctor was very knowledgeable and took his time to discuss my treatment. Very gentle.
