After almost 40 years, my previous ENT retired and Dr Peiffer was able to take me as a patient and was outstanding. He was professional, prompt and I feel that my care didn't miss a beat.

He's great with kids as well as all of his office staff. Daniele, his audiologist conducts the hearing test as a fun game. My son (now 5) has been a patient of his since he was 11 months old. Chronic earinfections and 2 sets of tubes later, his ears look great and hearing is prefect, other than when it's selective.

Love the ability to book my appt online. It would be helpful if you can get a system to fill out the forms online as well - where it would populate the same information on all forms but I would onlyhave to enter it 1 time. I think I put my name and birth date etc on at least 4 forms - and signed each one separately. Should be able to populate this info 1 time - have it fill in on the separate forms and then only have to enter "new info" on each form that is not repeated on another one.
