I have never been more disappointed in an experience with a doctor that it drove me to write about my experience. I came to Dr Schiff for a severe sinus infection while 36 weeks pregnant. I was concerned about my escalating symptoms and the effects of medication on my advanced pregnancy. Dr Schiff had a cold bedside manner, asked me a checklist of random symptom questions and cut me off every time I tried to describe to him what was going on. He got up to leave multiple times for several minutes without a word. Once left abruptly to call another doc to ask how he should be treating me. I’m all for docs consulting- but hearing the entire conversation made me feel very weary that Dr Schiff did not feel confident in my simple exam. Plus most of the conversation was him marketing his new practice and gabbing about referrals that he was promising... on my time. He came back and handed me an Rx with no reasoning. My husband wanted more info on the safety of the Rx during pregnancy, and Dr Shiff snapped at him very defensively. I should mention that the entire appointment, he sat in a chair in the open hallway and refused to come into the exam room with me or close the door. Whenever I opened my mouth he was visibly trying to block himself from breathing the same air as myself. I know no one wants to get sick, but this is a common cold—and you’re a doctor. As he loudly discussed my case, several other patients walked by him in the hallway, overheard and stared at me. At that point I told him that as a Psychologist myself, I have to follow the same HIPPA compliance and Patient Rights to Privacy as he does, and he was acting negligently in severely compromising my confidentiality. He became embarrassed and keep excusing his behavior because “no one wants to catch a cold”. I told him, “you’re a medical professional. Wear a mask and treat your patients” to which he responded “masks don’t prevent everything”. Fair enough. Me Schiff, I think you should consider another profession.
I had a cold, and it looked like this put Dr Schiff off. When he wasn't answering the phone, he was standing in the doorway.
