Dr. Schiffman is kind, courteous, and very well versed in his specialty. I trust his opinion 100%. He's always open for questions, and gives detailed responses. He expertly administers any type of injections quickly and as painless as possible. I recommend him to everyone I know. You are in good hands with Dr. Schiffman. Staff is very competent. Office is very clean.

I would definitely recommend him to family and friends but NOT for children. He is not a pediatric dermatologist and that became very evident when my two year old started crying and he became impatient and a bit irritated. The office is nice, and I was going to recommend him to the moms in both of my childrens' chats, but better leave it at that. For adults, I am sure he is great.

The staff was not too friendly. I asked them a couple of questions and their facial expressions showed "annoyed". I felt a little overwhelmed with all the products he suggested i purchased from his office not to mention all the other prescriptions he prescribed. BTW it took me two months to get this appt. The doctor was super nice and very knowledgeable but the staff up front needs to be replaced!!

He is a horrible Doctor. He came into the room, barely looked at the patient's skin, and began to prescribe 5 different medications. Weird seeing as he is a DO and is supposed to have studied holistic medicine. He did not allow time for questions or state concerns. He did not look over patient's history before entering the room. It was clear he is only in this career for the money and not for helping people. before leaving the room he recommends laser treatments which are extremely expensive.
