    When do you ever really see Dr Shiffman? Shiffman is supposed to be my Doctor but, I never see him. Dr Meriman seems to be the one you see and believe me when I say run. This man is very confused and confusing. I can not wait to get through my medical situation with this clinic. No matter how I have continually requested that I see only Dr. Shiffman when I show up they send in Dr. Meriman. I am so done with this clinic do not go there if recommended please request another Doctor.
