Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shifrin "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."
