Dr. Effron has been my doctor for many years. He called me day the next to tell me that the RX he added after my last visit was working. A test has been set up for me and I think I'll get a call about the results.

My absolute favorite doctor. He spends as much time as I need with me. He comes into the exam room prepared having already reviewed my records about anything that has happened to me since I last saw him. He is always trying to look at ways to improve my health and is thoughtful and so pleasant in all conversations. His demeanor comforts me. I wish my PCP was like him.

Dr. Effron is very thorough, takes his time with me, listens to me, explains things and wants the best for me. When we requested to see his regular nurse, ***, she came in and talked to us, as we feel like family and wanted to know about her family. It is like getting a Christmas letter to find out what is going on in the person's life, as you only see them once a year.

I couldn't be happier with this specific physician. He is accessible. We can chit-chat so I'm comfortable with what's he's going to be telling me. And ... He's given me a great suggestion, in terms of making a change in my Primary Care doctor. In short, he's a MENCH!
