Dr. Schiff was extremely thorough in his conversation with me, and, his examination of the areas of my complaints. His bedside manner was very affirming. He was very personable, yet displayed concern for me. He didn't make me feel rushed at all. When Dr. Schiff was with me, I was his 'only' patient.

I had a positive experience. Dr. Schiff is thorough, and he stops to explain his findings and review tests/pictures with you. I was pleased the first time, and I returned after I fell and had an injury.

When I first met Dr. Schiff I was unsure if he was the the doctor for me.. however after talking to him and finding out what was wrong with my body; well let's just say he was very professional and caring. I really want to thank Dr. Shiff for his professionalism and dedication for having the very finest service possible. I really appreciate not only my doctor but all the staff members that make me feel so comfortable when I attend my appointments. Thank you!! (everyone)!

Dr. Schiff was great. He was running late but genuinely apologetic. He gave me a thorough exam and took the time to explain everything really well. Ortho docs can sometimes be arrogant or standoffish and he was neither of those things.

My appointment with Dr. Schiff went very well! He was professional, competent and thorough. He spent time with me, explaining the problem and I never felt rushed, though I’m sure he was busy. Now if my insurance company will play ball and approve my MRIs life would be good!

Dr Schiff is very knowledgeable in his chosen expertise. He truly cares about his patients, at least in my experience, he is compassionate, and considerate of patients time. He explains in detail what is going on, diagnosis, using visuals in a manner understandable. I would recommend him.

Always appreciate Dr. Schiff's thoughtful consideration of my concerns. He doesn't rush and answers questions thoroughly. Dr. Schiff has done 2 RF ablations, soon to be 3, for lumbar degeneration and I have benefitted a great deal from these.

This is the worst experience that i have ever had with a doctor! Everything on my MRI was fine with the exception of one area he said could possibly cause an issue with my nerves. He then tells me that he doesn't know why i am in so much pain and that i can go back to work!?! He must not believe that i am in pain. Before this i have missed a total of four days in the last two years!! I want my issue fixed so i can work!!! I can't trust a doctor who doesn't believe me.

My experience with Dr. Schiff was very positive. He was very thorough in going over my issue and reviewing previous imaging I had done the year before. He asked several times if I had any questions. I did not feel as if my appointment was rushed and I will definitely feel comfortable referring friends and/or family to him.

Dr. Schiff does a good job explaining/diagnosing the potential problems as well as providing a range of solutions. He doesn’t uses PAs so you are always treated by him which is a plus.
