Dr. Alexander Shifrin is an amazing doctor with great attitude. He cares, understands and empathizes with his patients. He takes time to listen to the questions no matter how ridiculous they could be and goes to great lengths to answers them. Very thorough with his examinations and tests reviewing. I never felt rushed out of the door there. Dr. Shifrin's wonderful bedside manner and great sense of humor always make me feel relaxed yet confident. His office staff is friendly and diligent.

I've been a patient of Dr. Shifrin for 15+ years. He is very attentive and always makes his patients feel very comfortable. He delivered three of my children with the most care and professionalism. Definitely recommend him!!!
in Brooklyn, NY |
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.

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.
