Surgery is always unnerving, but Dr Yalif handled my reconstructive surgery better than I could have ever hope. He helped me prepare for the surgery by addressing each and every concern I had (which was many). He explained each step in the surgical and recovery process and he personally called me after to make sure I was doing well. Doctors never do that. He was there until I had healed completely, was back to better than normal, and completely happy with the results. Whether it is elective, reconstructive, or hand surgery, he is amazing. This is someone I trust absolutely and would send my family and best friends to.
