in Houston, TX |
If there was a"0" star rating I would have chosen that. AVOID this doctor at all costs. No care at all is better than what you will receive from him. That's what his "care" amounts to. Left my elderly mother with a very serious infection for over a month, refused to give an antibiotic, repeated tests and procedures twice, due to his own negligence (he "lost" one of the tests, he said). Cold, arrogant, especially toward the elderly. Horrible communicator. Told her she had a tumor when she did not

Dr. Schiffman is the best. The best professional that I know. He knows what he is doing. Trustworthy.
in Richmond, TX |
He does not review your medical chart or medical history. He did not listen to what I had to say. He asked questions, that if he had listened to me, he would not have had to ask those questions.
