This doctor is extremely rude. She made several mistakes referring to my chart so clearly she doesn’t spend enough time reviewing it. Very rude and passive aggressive. Overall a horrible experience with her.

Why is she still in practice? The medical field would do better without her. She is so rude and has no compassion. A cold fish! Had a very painful procedure done in her office. When I told her to stop, she coldly replied, "you need to get ahold of your anxiety". I never went back!!

I got an appointment in the practice quickly. The medical assistants and nurses were efficient and kind Dr Shaffron listened to my concerns. She explained my condition thoroughly She presented me with several options and helped me choose the right one for me. She is knowledgeable and proficient . I would recommend her to anyone one looking for Gyn Care.

I saw this doctor twice and she was very abrupt and treated me like I was taking up too much of her time. She said I needed a Sonohysterography and performed the procedure during the next appointment. She told me that there would be very little pain and discomfort. She completely lied. The procedure was unbearable and I asked her to stop performing it as I was in so much pain. She refused and I began crying and telling her it hurt. She and the nurse started laughing at me. Horrible doctor!

My wife sought Dr. Shaffran's counsel when experienced a gynecological infection. Unfortunately, after an exceeding brief examination, Dr. Shaffran insisted that the symptoms indicated a sexually transmitted infection; thereafter, she refused to hear any explanation f on why that diagnosis was highly unlikely (i.e., 15 years of monogamy). Dr. Shaffran's exact words were, "I don't want to hear about your personal affairs." Labs confirmed that the condition was not an STI, but a benign and tra

My first visit with Dr. Shaffran was a wonderful experience. She was very pleasant to talk too, and very understanding. She listens to what your saying, and explains what you need to know. Dr. Shaffran is very thoughtful, kind, caring and considerate. I highly recommend her.

DO NOT RECOMMEND! Her sarcastic remarks we're uncalled for throughout the entire visit starting with her "taking the plunge" remark to us wanting to remove the IUD to try getting pregnant, when we have children already. Insinuating that my fiance was "falling asleep" when doing the pap smear. He didn't want to look since he gets queasy. Insinuating that I didn't have a license OR a car. She basically put off the IUD removal til another appointment. She made us feel like we were lower class scum.

I love Dr. Shaffran. She has always been kind, knowledgeable and informative since day 1. I have been her patient for 30 years! She delivered my children and now my daughters see her too. I only hope she doesn’t retire before my granddaughters come of age. There is no greater testament than a multigenerational!

I started seeing Dr. Shaffran when I was a teenager. My first pregnancy was twins and was high risk. Dr. S took meticulous care of me and my babies. When my water broke and one baby’s heart rate suddenly dropped, she performed a prompt emergency cesarean section. Both boys did great! Years later I needed a hysterectomy for fibroids and anemia. Dr. S did such a great job. My husband and I can barely find the scars even after two surgeries. Sometimes it’s hard to get an appointment but well worth

When trying to start a family at an advanced maternal age, Dr. Shaffran helped me get the ball rolling. She is kind, compassionate, knowledgeable and always made herself available even if I had the smallest question. Her staff was also very accommodating and I would highly recommend Dr. Shaffran and her practice .

After struggling with issues for a few months, Dr. Shaffran was able to diagnose my issues quickly and efficiently. I had seen other doctors 4 or 5 times (it was ridiculous) and symptoms had gotten worse...she was very kind and caring! She solved the issue right away and I got a lot better after her help. To be honest, I would not recommend any other doctors at Suffolk OBGYN. She's the best one there!

I had one streak of blood from my vagina....just one streak I wasn't concerned, but I called Dr. Shaffran's office. She made me come in that day and did a biopsy. It turned out to be uterine cancer. She saved my life. She is a compassionate and brilliant doctor. Again, I thank her for saving my life.

I needed a test, doctor walked in, "How are you feeling?" walked out and charged my insurance $350 for consult. Not including test. Her bedside manner is horrible. I talked about how bad my experience was in my office and two other women said she was horrible! She misdiagnosed one with early menopause. The other woman was to embarrassed to say what happened. When I switched practices, I told the doctor about her, comments she made and they told me they have heard that before.

Horrible facility, unprofessional and made me feel extremely uncomfortable on several occasions. I absolutely would not put my trust in the doctors working here and do not recommend to any woman searching for honest and safe healthcare. Please beware and find a trustworthy Dr elsewhere.

I found Dr. Shaffran to be an exceptional doctor with a lousy bedside manner. No one enjoys being interrupted when they're speaking, but when you're with a doctor it is particularly disconcerting. Dr. Shaffran has a habit of interrupting with a question that is off-topic; making the patient feel as if she is not listening - at all - to what they're saying. The truth is, she's a very good, capable Dr. ... When she's on-time for appointments (frequently late to work, not backed up).
