Education & Credentials
Dr. Jaffee received his bachelor’s degree at McGill University in Montreal, Canada in 1993. After graduating from McGill magna cum laude, Dr. Jaffee received his medical degree from Albany Medical College in New York. During his time at Albany Medical College, Dr. Jaffee was involved in medical research for diseases affecting the prostate at the Leahy Clinic in Massachusetts. It was that experience, combined with the influence of his father who was also a urologist, that convinced him to become a urologist as well.
“I saw how passionate my father was about caring for people and how meticulous he was as a surgeon; he combined his love of science, medicine, and people," said Dr. Jaffee. "He found his work to be profoundly satisfying, and I am fortunate enough to have followed in his footsteps.”
Dr. Jaffee completed his surgical internship and urology residency at SUNY Stony Brook. Following the completion of his training, Dr. Jaffee practiced urology in a diverse academic setting for 10 years in Providence, Rhode Island. He also gave lectures and mentored the medical students at Brown University School of Medicine. Dr. Jaffee's role as a faculty member at Brown University Medical Center required training the residents in urology as well as the fellows in urogynecology.
Dr. Jaffee is proud to have been selected as one of Rhode Island Magazine's Top Docs. He is proficient in the treatment of diseases affecting the prostate, bladder, kidney, and genitourinary system. He has additional expertise in issues relating to female pelvic organs and incontinence. In his spare time, Dr. Jaffee enjoys playing tennis, hiking, or unwinding with a good book.
He considers himself extremely lucky to be married to a physician who can help him solve all of life's mysteries, whether they be work or home-related. Together they have four wonderful children and a friendly miniature schnauzer.
