Malden, MA |
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.
