50 years of living with Grandmal Epilepsy (now well controlled), and over a dozen Neurosurgeries in the 1970's at NYU (9 east). - After our first meeting; the fear of being under minded and or judged has lessoned so I can sleep better. Huge improvement, let's see where this takes me. - WCN 1/16/2019

Dr Schlifka is my angel. After four failed neck surgeries and years of pain, I finally have a new future. My migraines are mostly gone and I only get soreness sometimes. This is a real life change for me. He is very kind, listens to you, explains everything, has excellent bedside manner, and does not give up in trying to make you well. He also has performed two back surgeries on me and I do not have improvement but I am hopeful he will come thru again. We are lucky to have him in south FL.

Dr Schlifka is one of the only doctors in his field that takes care of his patients total needs when dealing with neurosurgery. He is caring, and never rushed when explaining what needs to be done. I wish I still lived in Florida for my follow ups. No one compares to his level of dedication in his field.
