I found him warm and easy to talk to. He explained things well, took a good amount of time with me, ordered more informative testing than other doctors I have seen. He even called me on a Sunday when it became evident I would need some testing sooner than expected. I feel lucky to have a hepatologist who follows up so carefully.

Dr Shiffman was curt, unhelpful and somewhat nasty. Total waste of time I am afraid. His frontoffice clerk was equally useless and didn't appear to know even the first thing about billing Medicare.

I would recommend Dr. Shiffman very highly as to his knowledge, professional manner and his caring for the patient's concerns. I was referred to him by my gastrologist and was very concern as to my liver problems, having gone through over a year of test, a biopsy and scanning. He reviewed all of the diagnostics very throughly and I left there with a better understanding of my condition and future treatment. THE BEST THERE IS, THANKS
