My husband recently visited him for shoulder pain - he was quick and straight to the point. Dr Neofitos Stefanides is also accessible via email which i thought was amazing. The only thing i disliked was the didn't take co-pays viacredit or debit AND they charged a full co-pay for a follow-up (which I've never experienced).

I have never encountered a Doctor with such professionalism, knowledge and bedside manner. I had no need for a second opinion as Dr. Stefanides gain my full trust over the course of time he has been evaluating and treating my elbow.My surgery went flawlessly and the best part is he let ME decide; he didn't "sell surgery" and performed all the least invasive procedures prior to surgery to remedy my elbow. A+++ and I have no reservations recommending Dr. Stefanides to all who require orthopedic care. From the reception desk to radiologist a positive experience every time.

Dr. Stefanides was one of the best professionals that I have ever visited. He was a good listener who addressed my concerns. He spent ample time in consultation before offering a treatment. Dr. Stefanides explained every type of treatment thatwas available and included me in the decision as to which was the best option at the present time. The office staff was very courteous and helpful. Nice clean environment. Valet parking was definitely a plus.
