    I'm a Registered Nurse at MMC for nearly forty years. I have had the pleasure to be treated on the most highest professional level by Dr. Schiff. His assessment and exam was extremely thorough. He plans on coordinating my care with other specialists to ensure the best possible outcome for me. I highly recommend Dr. Schiff to all my colleagues.

    My wife is just coming out of a month long Lupus Cerebritis Psychosis . Dr. Schiff gave me my wife back. His compassionate and caring approach to medicine is something every physician should strive for. As a patient advocate I can easily see why this man is as successful as he is. I work alongside Doctors every day and can notice what drives them. This man is in medicine for all the right reasons and throughout his many years of experience he has not lost any of his compassion. God bless him.

    Dr.Schiff is very compassionate and professional. I am 93 years old and had an appointment to see another physician in his office last week. However, when I arrived in the waiting area, to my dismay, I was notified that my insurance was not accepted. I was in a lot of pain. Dr. Shiff preserved my dignity and agreed to see me without being bothered about payment for his services.He treated me with utmost respect and caring. He is a wonderful doctor.

    Dr Schiff was great, until he wasnt. When i first went to him my experience was fine, even pleasant, after my 2nd visit the entire tone changed. I didnt get call backs, couldnt get in touch with him, couldnt get my test results or even an appointment to review them with him in person. He completely lost interest in my case & blamed every little thing on me. I was appalled! I later learned he has done this to many people & felt relieved it wasnt just me! Even Meimo(hosp) is aware of this history.
