Ratings for Dr. Janice Rafferty
Dr. Rafferty saved my life. I was diagnosed with colon cancer after a colonoscopy at 45 in NKY. I was referred to a general surgeon to remove the tumor. The CT scan seemed to show that the tumor was contained. It was strongly recommended that I go to Dr Rafferty. MRI showed the tumor had escaped the colon wall and had spread to lymph nodes. My course of care changed to chemo/radiation, colon resection, and chemo follow up. I'm a little over 2 years post surgery and still clear! I am convinced if the general surgeon had cut on me, he would have released the cancer throughout my body and I may not be here today! Every day is precious and I consider Dr. Rafferty my angel!!! She was very informative from the beginning. She explained the severity of the situation, the different courses of action, what we needed to do to give me the most positive chance of success! This doctor is amazing! I can't say enough good things about her. I wish I lived near her so I could drop cookies and dinner off to her weekly!
Dr. Rafferty was wonderful. She removed my cancer, made me feel comfortable before surgery. She explained evertything to me and I knew exactly what to expect. He staff is great. I never waited more than 5 minutes to be seen at her office. Very satisfied!!
Im 21 years old and found out that I have cancer. I was sent to Dr. Rafferty I was so scared but after leaving her office I was convinced that I was in good hands and had nothing to worry about. She is very caring and really knows her stuff. SHe scheduled me for surgery about a week later and got all the cancer out. She also took 42 lymph nodes out to check them they all came back cancer free. She is a great doctor she made me feel a lot better about everything and now she is going to keep a close eye on me to make sure it doesnt come back.
Prior to meeting Dr. Rafferty, I had had 7 perianal abcesses and cysts drained and everyone kept blaming it on my Crohn's disease. However, I went to see her and she determined that I had a pretty extensive fistula that had developed which is why I had been having these problems more and more frequently. The first time I met her, she walked in the room without any papers, and I loved that! She shook my hand and said, "Let's talk." Asked questions, looked concerned, and understood my frustration. In a very short period of time, I had surgery and have been feeling great since then. She is SO incredibly thorough and just an amazing lady. I would recommend ANYONE go see her...honestly. She's truly changed my life and made is SO much easier to deal with Crohn's.
