Dr. Mazzaferri is an exceptional Doctor in that he not only is top-notch in his field, but he is top-notch in the way that he treats his patients. He listens, he explains, he advises, etc. etc., but most of all, he cares. He would be a great role model for any Doctor to follow and to witness his expertise and his manner.
