Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr.Schiffer is a kind, generous and genuinely caring person. I saw him for over a year and not once did I ever feel anything but grateful for his insights and treatment. My only suggestion is to be sure to be active in AA/NA and or other supports for your recovery.

As a patient for 4 years I was surprised to see any negative reviews. Dr. Schiffer has been extremely helpful to me . He has been instrumental in the progress I have made . He understands trauma and has always been there for me without judgement. Perhaps some of the negative reviewers weren’t ready to put the time and effort needed to work in therapy.It is a difficult journey but Dr Schiffer continues to open myself up to understanding the 2 different minds I have and how to become a healthier person. Thank you Dr Schiffer!

Kept a relative sick for a year upping his dosage to addictive medication, he ended up in rehab and completely isolated after DR Schiffer was fine with him. This man is dangerous, do not see him!!!

I met this dr abut treatment for a relatives drug program. He is anidealogue, dogmatic, immersed in his personal theory to the exclusion of other important issues related to drugs. Simplistic, superficial and insensitive. Would never recommend. Total waste of time.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schiffers for about 2 years. He has saved my life and my family. He has worked with me and taught me than I could have ever imagined. I have seen other Doctors before him that went nowhere. He has been more than I could have ever imagined for a doctor!!

Dr. Schiffer has been helping a family member for over 2 1/2 years. He has been instrumental in listening and advising our family member on how to deal with their challenges and has really helped with ideas on how to navigate everyday life while coping with these challenges. He has also been very receptive to family discussions and has always been there when there was an immediate need. I highly recommend him to help you or your family member.
