Dr. Schiff man was very thorough and is an excellent surgeon. My wife broke both of her arms at the wrists. ..very rare, but Dr. Schiffman provided excellent consulation, surgery and follow-up.
in Chicago, IL |
Not really willing to work with me to solve my shoulder issues. He made an appointment with me for a certain day. I took off work to be present for my appointment and when I was on my way to work, his office called to inform me that Dr Shiffman had canceled my appointment and was not willing to see me. So much for the Hippocratic Oath. I'm assuming he never read it, let alone swore to it because he is totally devoid of compassion or understanding.
