I'm actually being nice and giving this place one star because aside from the rude Russian staff that look miserable the doctors are actually decent people. The office manager that goes by the name of Lena is a see you next tuesday!! i mean it ! She was extremely unprofessional and doesn't know sh*t about insurances.

I am a patient of Dr. Shifrin for more than 18 years. He delivered both of my kids and helped me with other medical problems. Doctor has great bed side manners, very knowledgeable, and up to date with new developments in the field. The best ob/gyn !

Dr. Gregory Shifrin is a great doctor. I was a little nervous about switching doctors at first, but he put me at ease. The staff is very welcoming, I'm glad I found him. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

HORRIBLE FIRST TIME EXPERIENCE: Made an appointment with Dr.Shifrin for a consultation because I wanted to switch doctors. As soon as we sat down to speak, he started going on about money matters and that my insurance would not cover the costs of the delivery of baby and I would have to pay 15,000. Fine. But then, he kept going on about how he'd be losing money taking in a 20 week pregnant woman and that if I'm considered "high risk" he'd only be making peanuts. This is money hungry doctor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shifrin for over 10 years and can't praise him enough for all he has done for me. He could always exactly diagnose any condition or problem and help it right away. His professionalism and knowledge are exceptional. The entire surgery and procedures went very smoothly and Doctor was always in reach and present whenever I needed his assistance.assistance. He is not only great doctor, he is a great human being and fine gentleman. I can highly recommend him!

I would most definitely recommend a friend/family member. Dr. Shifrin & My. G.P. put their heads together and figured out why I was bleeding so heavy and after blood transfusions he saved my life. Dr. Shifrin's skilled hands performed surgery and corrected the problem. In addition he caught a precancerous condition. Dr. Shifrin is the best. I would never consider another gynecologist even after having had a female GYNO in the past.

Dr. Shifrin is an amazing doctor and a wonderful person. He really takes the time to get to know his patients and their concerns. My husband and I were trying to have a baby for over two years with no luck.Then I decided to try Dr. Shifrin, who on my first appointment set out a game plan to get me pregnant. One year later, I am very happy to say that we have a beautiful baby girl. This would not be possible without Dr. Shifrin and his staff. Highly recommended!!

An amazing doctor. Been with me throughout my pregnancy including c-section. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Highly recommend this doctor

Dr. Shifrin is knowledgeable & sincerely interested in his patient's well-being. He stayed in the hospital through my entire labor, checking on me often & even provided entertainment through his numerous stories. He made sure that the hospital staff was providing the care he would expect for his patients & controlled the situation if they weren't. I would highly recommend Dr. Shifrin to anyone looking for an extremely knowledgeable & caring OBGYN that goes above & beyond for his patients!

A couple of weeks ago I had Laproscopic Surgery on right ovary at Surgery of Tomorrow. Dr. Shifrin was able to put his team together within 2 days (ASAP) to perform this procedure for me. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Shifrin and his staff. Dr. Shifrin is awesome, caring, attentive and I admire him for his knowledge, experience and personality, he is very humorous. He has a wonderful, caring staff. I felt at ease and my recovery was remarkable. I am beyond satisfied.
