if you have 5 minutes to spare then he's the Doctor for you. The man didn't give me 5 minutes of his time before testing and after. Good thing there will be a report issued and sent to my primary physician. Maybe then I can find out what is going on! If you have a choice DO NOT GO SEE THIS...more

Most of the consultation was done by a PA, for about 15 mins and then the doctor walked in, looked at my problem, and without any conversation sent me to a surgeon with no clear explanation. I find Dr. Schifferson to to be aloof, with little empathy, and his bedside manner needs improvement.
