Dr. Raffo delivered both my children and is considered a family confidant. Quality care, confidence, and compassion can be expected during your visits with Dr. Raffo. Without her and her team, my first born would not be with us. I am beyond impressed and am indebted to you for allowing me the gift of my sons. My advice Doc is to never change and to continue making OB/GYN visits a delightful experience! Lol not sure many doctors have this gift Yelp Family!
Dr. Raffo is an amazing doctor! She is easygoing and comprehensive. She was responsive to my concerns and requests. I felt comfortable and in control of my healthcare. She made going to the doctor an easy experience, and I appreciate her so much! Best gynecologist I have ever been to.
Dr. Raffo is an extremely caring and knowledgeable physician. She gives you her undivided attention when she is with you and is an extremely good listener. She makes sure all your questions are answered. <br><br>I recently had to have some surgery and Dr. Raffo was great. Before I was taken to the operating room, she stopped by my bed to touch base and answer any additional questions I had. After the procedure was over, she went out to the waiting room to let my parents know how the procedure went, and answer any of their questions. She even called me at home that evening to see how I was. <br><br>Not only do I trust Dr. Raffo with my healthcare, but I would recommend her to family or friends!
I randomly was assigned Dr Raffo for my delivery at OCWMG and I have to say that it did not bother me at all!! She was very professional and knowledgeable about everything. I was very comfortable delivering with her and yet I had not met her in person before. Everything went extremely well and she did a great job stitching me up. Definitely deliver with her if you get the chance!!
Dr. Raffo changed my life! She did my hysterectomy and I have been feeling so much better ever since. She suggested a partial hysterectomy so I did not have that sudden change that happens when you get a full hysterectomy. I feel 10 years younger and my quality of life has improved so much!
I love Dr. Raffo!!! She is awesome and a very carrying physician. I had an extremely difficult pregnancy with major issues, that resulted in a C section and PPD. Dr. Raffo was awesome with both and got me through a very difficult time.
The most professional and personable OBGYN around! I've gone to her for YEARS and absolutely Love her. Dr. Raffo always takes time to ask how you are and how's your family or in my case she always asks about my grandchildren. You can not do any better than Dr. Raffo!!! Period
I've been seeing Dr. Raffo for more than 15 years.. She has been so good to me. I trust her, can count on her, and know she cares about me personally. She has delivered both my daughters (via csection). I moved during my last pregnancy, but drove 2.5 hrs to see her and have my baby delivered by her. I'm now pregnant again and we decided, collectively, it would be best to see a local doctor this round. She called me personally and actually helped me find a couple of obgyn's in my area to check out, based on education and experience. I'm super emotional about not having her care during this pregnancy, but am so appreciative for her help. She's an excellent doctor, smart woman, attentive, kind, caring, and I absolutely recommend her!
Ive seen Dr Raffo for the past 4 years and have been extremely happy with her. I genuinely feel like she cares about me and spends time with me without feeling rushed. She has delivered all 3 of my children and my third she even stayed past her shift just so she could be there at my delivery. She's an awesome Dr and would definitely recommend her.
Really sorry to hear about your experience SM M. <br>Wish I could say I am shocked, but unfortunately can't. Maybe I'll update the post later with more details.
I am writing this review to make sure that nobody else goes through what I did. Dr. Raffo was referred to me by a friend so I made an appointment for a Pap Smear. First of all the office staff were rude and like all other OB/GYN's the appointment was a few months away (4 months or may be even more). <br>In the meantime I got pregnant :) Great right? To make the story short, my pregnancy ended up with having to get a D&C. These things do happen unfortunately. I was devastated but not crazy or delusional. Just sad. After the D&C, I still had bleeding and my temperature never fell! Surprised as I was by that and worried about the bleeding, I called Dr's office many times and explained my situation, the NP told me that I needed to stop taking my temperature and that the bleeding would stop, well it did not. Sometimes it was heavier and at times it appeared lighter. When I went for the follow up visit after D&C, I told that to Dr Raffo and she said that my body needed to adjust itself and that would end. She never examined me after the D&C to see if my Uterus had gone back to its normal size after the pregnancy was terminated. This was in the beginning of March 2007. I continued with the bleedings, called now and then, the nurse probably thought I were crazy, sad, in grief or all of the above. Any way, I scheduled my pap smear and saw Dr Raffo in June 2007, I actually think it was June 14 or 15. I remember so well, it was a Thursday, I told her again that I had bleeding on and off and sometimes even heavily after my period was finished. She kind of shrug it off as it was not such big deal and again talked about how body might sometimes have hard time to readjust itself. That next night, Friday to Saturday, I woke up with an excruciating pain in my pelvic area and did not close my eyes until morning. I told my husband about it and he suggested that we go to the ER if it reoccurred. I was Ok on Saturday. The next day (Sunday) that very same pain came back so I called my uncle who is a physician after questioning me, he excluded any abdominal obstruction and or appendicitis so he said it might have some gynecological cause. I called the Women Center to ask for the physician on call and they said that Dr. Raffo was on call and that she will contact me shortly. She never did, ever. Until Tuesday night (two days later) I passed a piece of tissue. When I called the center again, the Dr on call got back with me and said that I had had a miscarriage. I took the tissue to the center for lab exam and they found out that it was in deed an old fetal tissue or remaining tissue. Dr. Raffo, was shocked to hear that and told me she did not know I had problem. When I reminded her how often I had mentioned about the bleeding, temperature, etc. she said she did not think of it much and thought that I was just a little overwhelmed by the grief and so may be that was why I was calling as often. I even mentioned about the weekend before, and she said that she had thought that I wanted to ask my lab results. Come On, Am I crazy to call with such lie just to ask for lab results??? on a Sunday?? The day after that event, I started a terrible back pain and a fever of over 102. I called and they asked me to go for a blood work (that, they did very often!) I went to see the Dr as my back pain was unbearable and was told that I had to wait, after 40 minutes or an hour I left since I could not sit any longer. They called to schedule me to see the Dr. and at that time I was told about the lab results.<br>Nobody knows what really happened but my guess is that she has missed apiece of fetal tissue inside me. I cannot prove any of that and my husband and I are descent people but anyone else would have sued her for all the miserable, painful months (physical and mental pain of not knowing what the hell is wrong). I just want to make sure that whoever chooses to go to her based on just stars on the review reads my story. She is a very personable doctor, but extremely incompetent and expensive.
Because of this lady I am keeping my PPO....I've been to several others and really....Wooohooo! As good as it gets! So I appreciate that she is gentle and very doctorly looking. She doesn't give the OC vibe some doctors now have and I will def go to her when I get pregnant as well. The only thing that bothered me about this office is that to get the Gardisil shot you have to pay up front and then bill your insurance yourself...I don't think so. So other than that...I am happy!
I miss Dr. Raffo. When I moved to Los Angeles and no longer had real insurance I had to stop seeing her; however, she is the doctor that I compare all other OB/GYN's to (I still have yet to find one that measures up) . She really pays attention to your concerns, actually DOES something about them, and you never get the feeling that she's ever rushing you. I remember having to come in on short notice and that was never a problem. Her office staff was always very friendly and I don't remember the wait ever being that long. Looking for a replacement doctor really, really makes me appreciate how good I actually had it.
