Dr.Stifleman was highly recommended to us by an acquaintance. After seeing two other doctors , both offering different opinions about the course of action my husband should take to remove the tumor on his kidney, we knew within a very short time we had found the perfect doctor for my husband’s surgery. He took the the time to explicitly explain what the pre and post surgery would entail. He answered all our questions without losing patience when we asked the same ones over and over again so that we could feel reassured. He is a kind, caring, and compassionate doctor with exceptional skills- hence why there are so many 5 star ratings.

Dr . Stifleman was the first physician I interviewed for my prostatectomy. I thank god each day for his brilliant skill and god for sending me to him. 20 months out I am cancer free. There are no words to describe my gratefulness to him. You will not find a more competent caring individual. May god continue to bless him for all the people he will help.

After learning that I had a small mass on my kidney that was suggestive of renal carcinoma, I researched nephrologists in the metropolitan area. Dr. Stifelman was recommended by several doctors as being the best. When I met with Dr. Stifelman I was impressed with his warm demeanor. As he reviewed my scans he explained that my mass was located in a difficult position but he felt he could remove it doing a robot assisted laparoscopic partial nephrectectomy. That's exactly what I was hoping for and he did it successfully sparing a good portion of my kidney. I am grateful for Dr. Stifelman's outstanding surgical skills and impressed with his natural ability to relate to his patients in a calm and comforting manner. I was fortunate in that my renal mass was benign but we couldn't discern that without excision. The referring doctors were right-- Dr. Stifelman is simply THE BEST !!!

3 weeks ago Dr. Stifelman performed Robotic Pyeloplasty surgery on my daughter. All went very well and she is recovering now. Dr. Stifelman is brilliant surgeon, knows exactly what needs to be done. Very important is that he was always available via e-mails to answer any questions/concerns. Amazing Doctor!

Dr. Stifelman performed two robotic assisted surgeries on me this year (2016). Within one and one-half weeks I was back to work. It is my understanding that he has performed over two-thousand of such surgeries. The bonus is he has an easy-going and relaxed personality which makes for a productive patient-doctor exchange.

I recently had a partial nephrectomy done. Dr. Stifelman took the time to explain everything to me with patience, no matter how many times I asked the same question. He made sure that I fully understood what to expect during the surgery and then during recovery. I was very fortunate to have found Dr. Stifelman. I talk very highly about him to all my friends and would not hesitate to recommend him. Thanks so much to you and you staff.

First of all I left a review on another website but it showed 3 Stars for my review completely wrong Dr.Stifelman and his staff were 5 stars across the board and then some. In February a lesion was found on my right kidney unrelated to why I had a CT Scan... when they told me I just about passed out with fear and disbelieve. I did my research and my Gyno recommended a very good Dr. but I wasn't sold on the procedure he recommended which was ablation due to the size and location of my tumor he thought that was enough. . I wasn't sold nor confident about that choice .It wasn't enough in my eyes to make me feel secure with that choice for the big picture. I did my research and Dr. Stifelman seemed to be the" GUY "!! Called on Monday got an appointment on Tues. and the MINUTE he walked in the room I knew he was the "GUY" !! Kind ,positive and normal he made me feel that this was going to be done once and right and he promised he would do everything possible to make sure I came away with both kidneys... working well and basically cured...keeping a watchful eye. 1 week after surgery I walked most of the way to his office and felt totally at ease with what we would discuss and my prognosis. I was right , He was right and I have nothing to fear from this day forward my Kidney is healthy and disease free....Dr. Stifelman you are incrediable and I made all the right choices with your guidance , your staff was amazing, I felt totally at ease and truthfully more excited to get this thing done without fearing the process that was your job . No Micromanaging necessary every detail was perfect and taken care of for me all I had to do was show up and follow your offices directions. PERFECTION THANK YOU !! ....XXOO
