Dr Standefer is the most honest, talented and faithful doctor I have ever met! I thank him all the time for the work he did for me. He is humble and has a great "bedside" manner. I tell him he is the last of the good ole boys!

Dr. Standefer is great! He told me what to expect every step of the way. He always took plenty of time to make sure all my questions were answered. He truly enjoys what he does and I could tell as he was almost as happy as I was with my results!
