Dr. Jaff is wonderful. She is caring, concerned and has skilled hands. During my visit she took the time to thoroughly evaluated my condition and carefully explained her conservative approach. She provided exercises to stretch and strengthen my affected area and demonstrated the proper format. She provided sound direction with a reasonable approach and warning signs. I highly recommend Dr. Stacey Jaff.

Stacey seems nice but is a bit odd. I think the reason why my visits werent useful because she lacks communication skills and is very frazzled and inattentive. She seemed impatient and didnt fully listen to my concerns and spent most of the hour going on irrelevant tangents. She also kept trying to get me to do an exercise that didn't feel right which later resulted in low back pain. Also I left her office not knowing what to do to help my issue because she was very vague and never clearly stated what I should do about my issue.

She's personable and talks to you like she's known you for years, which is very comforting for me at least to feel like it's not a big deal to be seeing her under any circumstances. She was knew her previous appointment ran late and was very apologetic and aware about it so I didn't mind as much.

Dr. Jaff was very accommodating and took the time to show me some stretches that have proven helpful. Although I do still have some pain, it is significantly less than when I first went to see her - unfortunately there is no magic pill to completely eliminate my pain, but I feel confident that Dr. Jaff has done what she can to reduce it for now. It’s also worth noting that Dr. Jaff explained one of the procedures she executed in great detail both prior to and during the treatment which helped put me at ease. I will continue to see Dr. Jaff to treat my shoulder / back pain as needed.

Stacey is awesome at treating my super painful musculoskeletal condition both compassionately and conservatively. She encourages me to use movement to improve my condition, and simultaneously empathizes with the fact that it's really hard to move when *everything* hurts. She prescribes muscle relaxants and pain killers in a responsible way. As an addiction professional who has concern about painkiller dependance and addiction, I feel trusting that Stacey uses her prescription privileges how they are intended - to treat pain.

She scared me at first. She is actually a very ' real' person and seems to be very knowledgable with sports related injuries which is why I went to see her. She is in good shape herself and seems to walk the walk of health, which I value highly in a doctor. I would go back to her.

Dr. Jaff is nothing short of amazing. She has been my doctor for two years now. I have struggled with severe back pain and she has not only made my back stronger but she has also elevated my mental health. Our physical therapy sessions have improved my health and taught me a lot about her as a doctor and a person. Her warm and open demeanor makes it easy for her to help me. I wish more doctors were like her and i hope she continues to practice medicine with the grace and civility that she has shown me.

outstanding physician that shows she really cares about her patients. spent an extensive amount of time performing a thorough exam, asking questions and listening to my concerns. she also took the time to explain proper strengthening techniques and went out of her way to help me find ways to get insurance coverage for a prescription. i am going to enter the medical field soon and her bedside manner and professionalism were outstanding (im fairly critical of how a doctor treats their patient). highly recommended
