      Dr. Shifrin performed my hysterectomy (June 9, 2016) and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I rarely leave rating, but Dr.Shifrin and his staff definitely deserve it! My entire experience at this office was pleasant: from the appointment, to my conversations with Dr. Shifrin regarding diagnosis and treatment options to scheduling the best procedures, pre-op, surgery, post-op. Dr. Shifrin is extremely brilliant and I knew from first visit that I was in the best hands.

      Dr. Shifrin is experienced, patient and very effective. He really dedicates himself to his patients. There is a real human care combined with high professionalism residing in this doctor. He delivered my second baby. What a difference from first!

      Dear Doctor Alexander Shifrin, thank you and your team for helping my wonderful son to be born 07/12/2015. Appreciate your attention, support and professionalism. I have only positive experience and emotions.
      He is a real doctor, not a businessman. The best doctor in New York. Period. Too bad he only accepts few types of insurance.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Shifrin's Care Philosophy

      As medical care has become more and more impersonal, I offer a remarkably different philosophy. I believe in cultivating a trusting, lasting relationship with you and your family and in bringing my heart and mind into every aspect of your medical care. You are important to me not only as a patient but as a person as well.
