Patient Comments (7)
in Belmont, MA |
Dr. Shiffren is an extremely competent physician, is caring, and down to earth. Her extremely cheerful personality is reassuring, especially when you are dealing with a sometimes frustrating and disappointing condition such as infertility.

Amazing caring and knowledgeable doctor
in Norwell, MA |
Dr. Shifren & her team were cold, condescending, arrogant, lack empathy, was defensive, accusatory & unapologetic after making numerous mistakes & never took responsibility. Never took time to answer questions & didnt get back to me in a timely manner when I had an urgent time-sensitive question. Twice I was scheduled for blood work & since I was aware of their incompetence I confirmed it 3 x w/her office, yet both times I went to blood lab they never received records of it. Worst Dr experience.
in Cohasset, MA |
Very disappointed with Dr. Shifren & how she treated my wife. She lacks empathy & brushes questions off, as another reviewer also posted. When she/her staff makes a mistake (which happened 3 times over the course of 4 visits), she gets extremely defensive, doesn't take responsibility & is unapologetic. She doesnt seem to genuinely care & comes across very fake. We are switching Doctors & only wish my wife had switched sooner. Was an extremely negative experience from the 1st visit to the last.
in Boston, MA |
Dr. Shifren is kind, patient, understanding, warm, appropriately thorough in the tests she ordered, and clear in explaining everything. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She also works with a great team.
in Massachusetts |
She is a competent doctor but rarely seems to listen. Also brushes off the questions & concerns and lacks empathy
Newton |
Shifren was willing to prescribe a regimen of medication that she knew would make me feel very ill. My primary care physician insisted I discontinue care with her because it could be detrimental to my health.
