Dr. Valfer is an exceptional physician and I’m so glad I found him! He is very easy to talk to, thorough, and has great communication with patients. He will call you back if you have a question, which I find thatnot many physicians do nowadays. I continue to see him even though I no longer currently live i the Chicago area because I think he’s such a great doctor.

Nurse Lana was very polite and made sure I was comfortable and also answered all my questions. Office manager, Edith,took time to understand my scheduling conflicts and helped book all my future appointments. Overall, I am very impressed with this practice.

Doctors aren't usually my favorite people, but Dr. Valfer makes his appointments fast, easy, professional and thorough! I have never had to wait more than 10mins to see him and scheduling with his front desk is a breeze. All of hisstaff is excellent, friendly and easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!

Very impressed with this doctor and his staff!! I hate going to the gyno but everyone there was extremely nice and made my experience pleasant. The office is beautiful and I did not wait long at all. The nurse was verykind and had a good sense of humor. She made me feel comfortable. Dr. Valfer was awesome! He was very kind and gentle. I tend to be tense when I'm getting examined by a gyno and I did not feel that way with him. He was very gentle and knowledgeable. There is definitely a good energy all around in this office! Great people! I definitely recommend Dr. Valfer!
