How lucky that we met Dr. Schiftan @ Boca West Hospital. His mannerisms, his warmth , concern and professionalism helped orchestrate some serious treatments to my Son who had an MS relapse. His smile put us at ease and we knew we had someone special in our court to advise us and worked hand in hand with my Son's Neurologist. It's so comforting to know there is someone close to home for us. Thank you Dr. Schiftan.

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.

About Me

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.
