Dr. Schiffman took the time to listen to my symptoms, asked a ton of questions, got a full picture of what I had been dealing with for years. After several tests, he gave me a diagnosis, a diet to follow, no meds and I have never felt better. I can't thank him enough. Sounds crazy, but it really changed my life! I'm not in discomfort anymore!
