 Dr. Valfer Reviews


Dr. Valfer is a dishonest man. He has been sued many times for inappropriate surgeries. He is quick to operate on patients that do not need such dangerous and expensive procedures.

He is a good income generator but a dishonest and low doctor, an even more disappointing person.

Avoid this individual and his practice at all costs.

  • Horrible care giver. I can't even call it care, I call it sadism. A ruthless careless mean spirited creep.

  • Seven (7) years ago Dr Mukherjee was informed that he needed to leave the Hospital and jump aboard a plane because his Mother was near death. My Mother was one of his many appreciative Patients.

Then he went back to the sleep apnea that he originally said was unlikely. I informed him that my regular dr. prescribed me blo...
