My mother would not be here right now if it were for Dr Shlofmitz and his team. He is an extraordinary man...
Fountain Hills, AZ |
Good doctor, but he's very arrogant and has no idea how the other half lives. He can be extraordinarily insensitive.

He is outstanding and saved my life
in Bayside, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Shlofmitz for about 8 years. I am firmly convinced had it not been for him and his care I would not be alive today to write this. He has been exceptionally on point with my care and diagnosis and recently reached out to me while he was on vacation so that he would monitor my care. I trust his expertise and judgment to the fullest!!! I know that he truly understands my case and gives it the utmost care and due diligence!!! His office staff is exceptional!!
in Rockville Centre, NY |
Caring, Professional, and most important, a medical genius.
Lindenhurst, NY |
Dr. Shlofmitz' expertise has saved my life several times over the past 14 years, he is not only competent, but very caring!
Astoria, NY |
Waited over 1 hour for my scheduled appointment. Doctor spoke much too quickly, not giving me a chance to explain my symptoms. Subscribed medication without asking if I had ever had previous problems with this type of medication.
