I am, like many, filled with anxiety when it comes to going to doctors. I find it difficult to be both confident and comfortable with a doctor and their staff,. I need to feel good about sticking with that 1 Dr. Long term. I have finally found Dr. Shiffrin and his staff!From my 1st visit they were warm and welcoming as if they have known me forever. DR. Shiffrin is very knowledgable and takes time to explain when there are questions or problems. The patient is always his priority. COMPASSIONATE!

Dr SHIFRIN is simply the best at what he does. It’s very hard to find a doctor like him. He is not just caring, knowledgeable and experienced professional who takes patient’s health very seriously, who always goes an extra mile explaining all risks and benefits. Always open minded and honest. But he is also has outstanding personality . With his unique care and great sense of humor.he always makes you feel comfortable. I was truly blessed to have him as my doctor through my pregnancy.

Dr. Shifrin is the best. He's kind, polite and very pleasant; always takes time to listen to any concerns and to provide clear explanations. He's been my doctor for about 5 years now and I couldn't be happier knowing that I can trust his guidance in health matters. His office and support staff are also great, always accommodating and very pleasant.

I have known this doctor and have been seeing him for over a decade. Through those years he has helped me with some very difficult moments in a womans life, and took me through every procedure with the most positive, knowledgable and professional attitude and the approach. When my husband and I chose to get pregnant Dr. Shifrin was without question going to be our doctor. He is the best! and his staff is wonderful as well.

I am very grateful to the Dr. Alexander Shifrin and his team for their qualified medical care, benevolence, attentive and sensitive attitude to me during the hysteroscopy. From the first visit to his office, I realized that I was in good hands because Doctor Shifrin had given sufficient time explaining all my questions. In the medical office of Dr. Shifrin I felt absolute professionalism during the examination and all necessary procedures. I have received really great care!

I highly recommend Dr. Alexander Shifrin. Dr. Shifrin successfully performed my hysterectomy. I was afraid to undergo such major surgery. Dr. Shifrin and his office stuff made me feel very comfortable, promptly taking care of all the necessary preparations. Everything from the beginning to the end including my hospital stay went smoothly, with minimal pain and discomfort. Dr. Shifrin is highly professional, personable and emphatic. Thank you Dr. Shifrin and Stuff!

About Me

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.
