Dr. Schiftan's Care Philosophy

As a neurologist, I believe that listening to patients and giving them enough time to explain their problems and concerns, is the most important part of the initial evaluation. Then a detailed neurological evaluation and review of past diagnostic testing, is the next step in evaluating the compaints in order to arrive at the correct diagnosis and initiate proper and successful treatment.

Boynton Beach, FL |
Wait time is horrendous and not a very thorough examination. Waste of time, had to actually see another doctor in order to actually be diagnosed. I wouldn't trust him with my worst enemy.
