I "inherited" Dr. Shiffman after Dr.Arad who had been my orthopedist retired. No offense to Dr Arad, he was great, but I have come to value Dr. Shiffman as an extraordinary doctor not only for his expertise but also for being a caring, warm and friendly guy. Be surprised how good that makes one feel when you're in pain! God bless him.

I felt like I was in good hands when I met Dr Schiffman. and my intuition was confirmed after my surgery and follow up visits. I had a quick and great recovery . I would see him again in case of need.

I got lucky.....I was taken to ER after a fall on tennis court. An Xray showed a fractured hip, surgery needed and it was my luck to get Dr, Schiffman. It was 11PM that night that he introduced himself and gave me the probable time for surgery so I could pace myself ..What Dr. is still in hospital at that hour and thinking of a new patient? At 7 the next morning he came in to see how I was feeling and tell me what to anticipate. His bedside manner preceeded and continueed afterward.

Dr. Schiffman is the best Orthopedic doctor that I have ever met. I have had both hips replaced by another doctor , and I have had problems with one. Dr. Schiffman is the only doctor who is willing to help me correct the defect. He is highly praised by other doctors and I am very happy to have met him a couple of years ago. He is a great doctor and a great human being. .His office is courteous and friendly.

I was referred to Dr. Eric Schiffman by my Primary Care Physician, Dr. Donald Howard as I have been experiencing severe right knee pain for over two years. Dr. Schiffman ordered an MRI of the knee and proceeded to suggest the proper treatment to take care of the pain. Dr. Schiffman seems to be pretty knowledgeable and I hope that the treatment works as he claims that it should.

I had another dr. do my 1st knee replacement and there was no comparison as every aspect of this surgery was much better. His office is extremely organized and efficient and he is a very gifted surgeon. The after- surgery was also excellent.

Dr. Schiffman is an amazing doctor who genuinely cares about his patients and the outcomes of his intervention. After 5 surgeries I been still in pain and had complications from previous Doctors care but after my last surgery with Dr.Schiffman I'm finally able to walk and function without further complications or complains of my right hip. He has outstanding bedside manners and will be the first one to respond in case you are admitted or just have an emergency and need some professional advice.

I live in Ohio and when Dr. Schiffman lived here he did my knee replacement. I had the perfect post op and recovery possible. He was so kind and took a real interest in everything about me from my first appointment to my last. I told him when he moved to Florida that if I ever needed my other knee done I would be catching a plane to Florida to make an appointment with him. Wonderful physician and person. D. Dreher Ohio

With my experience being a patient of Dr. Eric Schiffman, it has been a rewarding experienced. From the first day that I met Dr.Schiffman. I felt the positive energy that he transmitted at the moment of my pain to a presence of hope and security. After getting my knee replacement , I saw the difference right away. My solutions were solved. He's gifted in his field being orthopedic doctor. His professionalism is outstanding with excellent experiences. I am proud to recommend Dr.Schiffman MD.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr Schiffman agreed to do hip surgery as an emergency after 5 refused because a distal femur fx through the knee had just healed after 3 yrs. I was an RN for 30 yrs. and he treated me with utmost respect. The surgery went well but there are still problems of the first surgery by another MD. I would not hesitate to have him treat me again.
