Patient

Dr. Sclafani is the best surgeon, is very knowledgeable and is highly professional. The facility at which the surgery was conducted was amazing and everyone was so kind and helpful. He is a wonderful doctor and surgeon that I would recommend to anyone. He clarified every question I had and is very patient. He also communicates very well to ensure the doctor and patient are on the same page. Odette, the doctor’s coordinator, is also very organized and communicates timely to the patient. Again, I would recommend Dr Sclafani to anyone!

Patient

Dr. Sclafani revised a surgical procedure for my family member. The outcome was so well received, and helped this child to grow up with confidence in himself, and in his appearance. There is no finer recommendation for a surgeon than a successful outcome. In addition, Dr. Sclafani’s bedside manner and ability to explain complex procedures to a layperson allows me to feel confident in my understanding and comfortable to ask any clarifying questions.

Debi M – Mar 16, 2020

Patient

I had a few cosmetic questions to ask Dr. Sclafani. I was curious about the different fillers he thought would work for me and where he would use them. He always explains everything in detail so you understand exactly why which one would work better, how long they are suppose to last, and if there is any down time with them. There are so many different ones and I found out that certain ones are better for different areas on the face which I did not know. Dr. Sclafani is always kind, and believe me I ask a million questions and he always answers them and I leave there thinking about what he had told me with a clear head. His assistant is very kind and friendly, the office is very clean and the wait time around 5 minutes which is great compared to other Drs. offices. I highly recommend Dr. Sclafani and will always trust his word. If you are looking for a excellent facial cosmetic surgeon he's the one with always a 5 star review from me!

Skip Russell – Mar 09, 2020

Patient

Dr Sclafani reconstructed my nose after melanoma surgery and I could not be more pleased. There are no airs about him, he talks to you like a friend and instills confidence that all will turn out well. And it did! I am still doing follow up procedures and actually look forward to my visits. Odette, his administrator, is so helpful in making all the arrangements and visits. Best surgical experience I have ever had.

Carlos A Fondeur V – Feb 16, 2020

Victoria G – Feb 14, 2020

Patient

Dr. Sclafani is incredibly experienced, thoughtful and caring. He is so generous with his explanations and wants you to be part of the thought process. Few doctors want to allow the time it takes to make sure the patient has asked all of their questions. Bedside manner as excellent as his talent!

Great surgeon! Everyone is the office is nice, appointments usually start on time. He really seemed to care about results and followed up for six months until he and I were both happy with the result.

Sal G. – Sep 30, 2019

Dr Sclafani is both a very skilled and conscientious physician. He truly cares about his patients and spends a lot of time explaining his diagnosis to them. I highly recommend him. Dr. Sclafani is a physician that is very comfortable to talk to.

Christopher Lang – Sep 15, 2019

Patient

Dr. Sclafani is not only an exceptionally gifted doctor...but he is also an exceptional communicator whose explanations about diagnoses and prognoses and optional treatment plans are very clearly described and shared with his patients. I would absolutely recommend Dr.Sclafani to any person looking for his outstanding help, advice and treatment in reconstructive and/and or cosmetic surgery.

Lucy R. Chudson – Aug 23, 2019

really great consultation on subtle issues regarding nose function and possible subtle malformation. Dr. Sclafani was comprehensive in discussing my concerns and possible options.

Aug 11, 2019

Patient

Dr. Sclafani is kind, considerate and listens to what you have to say. He is experienced and has a very high skill level. He took the time to explain everything and is very easy to talk with. I knew he really cared about the quality of his work. He is a professional of the highest order. I would definitely recommend Dr. Scalfani and Weil Cornell. The office staff was so accommodating and friendly also. It is hard to find a good doctor with a nice office staff.

Neil in Hoboken , NJ – Mar 03, 2019

Patient

He did a brilliant job of describing the options available for reconstructive surgery after the operation. Very calming and easy to talk with. Generous with his time.

Diana Schaeffer – Feb 23, 2019

Patient

I’m a cautious person and typically not pro-surgery unless absolutely necessary. Dr. Sclafani made what seemed like a scary surgery totally manageable. He was able to explain my facial fractures in patient terms repair my bones with incredible precision, and minimize my down time in recovery. The ambulatory dept at NYP is also top notch and state of the art. I highly recommend

Robert Z in New York, NY – Jan 18, 2019

Patient

very efficient and friendly. I'm looking forward to a great outcome from the surgery. Had just suggested to his staff they they have a print out of the aftercare protocol as a reference sheet. He gave very detailed aftercare information

2 Josephine Wehrle in Pine Brook, NJ – Nov 22, 2018

Patient

Dr. Sclafani is brilliant at what he does. He is caring, professional and speaks with this sense of calmness that puts you at great ease. From the moment I met him and he began discussing my issues and surgical plan, I knew I was in good hands. He performed a medical procedure on both of my cheeks and I was amazed by his work. This doctor is a rare gem. I would highly recommend him to others.

1 4 annonymous in nyc – Nov 17, 2018

Patient

every thing the doctor claims to address as a surgeon, i have. however he already seem to have made a decision the moment i entered his office to turn me away. i am in urgent need of reconstruction, instead he sends me on a wild chase to a tmj doctor, who also turned me away on a phone conversation. there are too many of these kinds of doctors who make claims of procedures on their websites but feel to have an option to be very selective in what patients they take. very frustrating not fair.

1 Robert_NYC in New York, NY – Nov 08, 2018

Patient

Dr. Sclafani performed a surgery I have been thinking about having since I was a teenager. His expertise and patience made it a satisfying and easy experience.

Excellent doctor. Very knowledgeable and very personable. It is not common to find a Doctor Who cares as much as He does about his patients.

Patient

Kind , compassionate,and highly skilled. All traits that were vital to me when facing facial reconstruction surgery after excision of a lentigo malignant melanoma on my left cheek. I highly recommend Dr Sclafani.

Outstanding physician-highly skilled with Great personality.

Rita – Mar 22, 2018

Patient

I highly recommend Dr. Sclafani. He took a lot of time to understand my needs, and develop the best plan. Dr. Sclafani performed over 5 hours of surgery. He put me at ease prior to the operation, and responded immediately post op when I had concerns. Dr. Sclafani has the rare ability to be able to explain complex medical issues to the layperson. He loves his profession, and is an extremely caring person. I wouldn't trust my health or life to anyone else!

Jan 31, 2018

Patient

Dr. Sclafani is a talented and empathetic surgeon. I got excellent care throughout. I would absolutely feel comfortable with him operating on my family members

Dec 04, 2017

Patient

After 4 surgeries on my nose, no doctor wanted to operate on me. When I spoke to Dr. Sclafani, he agreed to try to help improve my breathing, but said my nose was fragile and that it would be risky to try to do too much improvements on the outside. It took a while for the swelling to go down my nose, it looks better than it had in years and I can finally breathe through my nose and get a comfortable night of sleep.

New York, NY – Nov 21, 2017

Patient

My visit with Dr. Sclafani was great. I went to him for tear trough and lip filler. The results are great, my under eye bags are gone and my lips are plump but natural looking. He explained everything to me in detail and discussed different filler options available. The whole experience was pleasant and I will definitely be back to see him again.

1 Brian Madsen in New York, NY – Sep 28, 2017

Patient

Like any of the really good surgeons Dr. Sclafani is often rushed and you can have a bit of a wait to see him. However, this is worth it because of his exceptional skill and the personal attention and thoughtful care he gives you when it's your turn to be seen.

1 5 Jason S in New York, NY – Aug 02, 2017

Patient

While Dr Sclafani may be an excellent doctor, I'll never find out. his office staff is uncaring, rude and arrogant. Completely unprofessional service. Time to change your front office staff Dr Sclafani

1 Deirdre Murphy in Jc, NJ – Jul 21, 2017

Patient

I have had many surgeries on my nose for different skin cancers. So not a lot of skin to work with. Dr. Sclafani was thorough in his explanation of the possible outcome before the surgery. After surgery, he listened to my concerns, discussed in detail timing for recovery and moved up my appointments accordingly. He is compassionate, spends a good amount of time with his patients and I trust him.

1 Joseph Messineo in New York, NY – Jul 13, 2017

Patient

Dr. Sclafani is thorough and knowledgeable. Explains all procedures and protocols. Gives reasons why progress is moving forward or not so you don't wonder what's happening after the surgery is over. Excellent bedside manner w no wasted time; either his or mine

3 Ron R in Bronx, NY – Jun 30, 2017

Patient

Perhaps one of my favorite physicians, though Weill Cornell and Columbia Presbyterian have shown me quite a few noteworthy ones. Dr. Sclafani performed nasal valve surgery on me after having had 2 other doctors make a mess of things. He was always patient, cautious, listened attentively and has about as pleasant a personality as one could hope for. I never felt rushed or noticed disinterest. As for the reviewer who complained about $'s, I never once felt any financial issues were in play.
