Verified Patient Reviews
I really liked her "bed side manner". She spent a great deal of time with me. Much more than other doctors. Unfortunately I haven't heard back from her in the time frame she said I would. But the lab work may be backed up. Hopefully I will here from her soon.
The office is bright and clean and the women at the front desk who check you in and out are lovely and friendly and helpful. The nurse who took all my information was really nice and helpful. Dr. Shiffman is wonderful, she listens carefully and responds thoughtfully to questions, she asks pertinent questions. She's very pleasant. I feel like I can talk to her about anything. She always puts my mind at ease. Everyone is very efficient and knowledgeable, but also courteous. I am extremely satisfied with the care I get from this office.
Great appointment! I really liked Dr. Shiffman, and everybody in the office was kind and easy to work with.
I was extremely pleased with my visit with Dr. Shiffman. My exam was thorough and not rushed thru. The entire office was very professional and helpful.
It was a great first appointment. The front office staff was efficient and friendly. Dr. Shiffman was warm and put me at ease immediately. I'm very excited to continue my treatment with her.
Dr. Shiffman took her time to listen to me to help me find answers!! Thank you!!! It is great to feel heard!
Very professional and friendly office. Super-attentive techs, nurses and Dr Shiffman herself. Even if they don't take your insurance plan, they file the paperwork for you, which is great.
I found Dr. Shiffman to be very pleasant and attentive. She asked direct questions and took copious notes and I felt very much that she would think seriously about my concerns. Her diagnosis and treatment plan was very well thought out and seemed appropriate. If it were not far from where I live in Maryland, I would have no qualms about transferring all my health care needs to Steinmetz and Dr. Shiffman.
She was very patient and understanding, never rushing me or brushing off any of my concerns. She took the time to review all the lab results I had brought in and walked through them with me. I feel very positively about this experience and I am glad to have my care now in the hands of someone who can competently and compassionately handle my needs.
Personable, non judge mental, thoughtful and a great listener.
Dr. Shiffman is hands down the best doctor I have ever seen. She is there to have a conversation and be a partner in your health. She isn't condescending and listens to your needs and concerns as a patient. Her knowledge of alternative treatments is a perfect compliment to her conventional knowledge and experience. If you are looking for a doc to give you the best of both worlds, AND treat you as a whole person, rather than a body part, you will not be disappointed with Dr. Shiffman's care. She is fantastic!
It was pleasant we will see if what she recommend I do works
Dr. Shiffman listens with respect and explains things in a way that is understandable without being condescending. She always responds to my concerns, and asks questions to make sure she's understanding me. Her suggestions for life-style changes are always practical and never judgmental. Couldn't ask for a better doc!
The best doctor's office visit I ever had.
Dr. Shiffman is a highly informed, empathetic and caring doctor. She listens intently to my concerns and responds by thoroughly checking on possible sources of issues. Dr. Shiffman had the forward-thinking approach to explore underlying issues related to genetic heredity and was able to accurately treat the condition.
This was my first patient visit to the practice and to Dr. Shiffman. So far, I am impressed with the team. They were professional and pleasant. Dr. Shiffman spent time with me to understand my health needs and developed a reasonable plan to address them. Thank you.
I think Dr Shiffman was very knowledgeable and I believe she will get to the bottom of my health issues.
She was thorough, curious, caring, and professional. I was extremely impressed with her willingness to spend so much time listening to help get a comprehensive picture of my symptoms, health history, and current concerns.
Caring doctor with excellent patient relationship . Highly recommend Doctor and practice.
Dr. Shiffman is the best, after years of frustrating visits with doctors, she really listens and gets to the root of what's going on.
Always thorough; very approachable; did not feel rushed
This was my initial visit with Dr. Shiffman, and I found her to be professional, personal, knowledgeable, attentive, and witty. She listened and gave responses to questions/comments that I asked versus providing answers that were scripted or knee jerk. I am very optimistic about working with Dr. Shiffman. I could tell that she has experience dealing with patients whose issues are similar to my own, and I was comforted by that and by several intuitive responses she gave which confirmed some of my own research. I am hopeful that my health will improve under her care and I look forward to partnering with her.
Dr. Shiffman is sympathetic, professional, reliable and "up to date" on the latest conventional and alternative medical treatments. I wish I had been seeing her all along! :-D
Dr. Shiffman is wonderful! I highly recommend her. She is very thorough, knowledgable and has a terrific bedside manner.
Dr. Shiffman is terrific. And the nurses/techs Leah and Nina are nice. I'm not thrilled with the staff at the front desk, and I haven't been for some time. First, it seems like it's become a revolving door situation. There seems to be new staff at the front desk during each visit. Second, that staff is simply unpleasant. During my last visit, in December of 2015, there were two women at the desk. Unfortunately I didn't get their names. One, who sits next to wall, was ok. The other, who sits near the door that leads to the examining rooms, is rude.
My experience from start to finish was excellent. Entire staff from the receptionist, nursing staff, nutrionist, lab tech to Dr. Shiffman were highly professional. I did not feel rushed during my appointment. I felt as if Dr. Shiffman took the time to get to know me as a whole person not just a number. I would highly recommend this practice especially Dr. Shiffman.
First Thyroid doc that has taken the time to explain everything to me in details I can understand. She is thorough and makes sure she tests everything to make sure she gets you on the right track. She's a life saver I feel better than I have in years.

I appreciate that Dr. Shiffman is thorough and she clearly explains the results of my lab tests. I also like it that she recommends lifestyle changes and natural supplements for my ailments.
Been using this practice since 2004 and I highly recommend them. The doctors (I've seen several through the years) are very caring, attentive, and offer a combination between alternative therapies and heavy duty drugs when the need arises. Never have a problem being seen when I really needed it.

Excellent physician. Listens well and offers options for treatment.
Dr. Shiffman is a very compassionate MD who always follows up on her promises on refills, knows the state of the art treatments in medicine & who truly cares for her patients.

Jeanne is great.. she's very friendly and listens to anything you have to say. She also tries to prescribe natural methods of helping you before any pharma stuff, which is really great.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER. I highly recommend Dr. Shiffman. She is extremely attentive and comfortable to talk to. I felt like I was talking to my mother.
Listened seriously to my complaint, took action and then verified that I was happy with the results. A very successful visit to the doctor's office!
Dr. Shiffman is excellent and I have recommended her to friends!
My appointment with Dr. Shiffman went very well including the office managers and nurses. I arrived early so I had to wait until, my appointment time, but that was expected. I liked the fact that they sell some of the suplements.
Dr. Shiffman listens to the symptoms the patient is having and goes by how the patient is feeling, not just numbers on a chart for blood test results. She is the best Thyroid doctor I have seen in this area. She has an excellent rapport with me and has always been open to my questions and suggestions for my care. It is a collaborative effort, which is what a doctor/patient relationship should be.
Excellent from every aspect!
Always appreciate this medical practice. Great staff and good sense of patient support
Very pleased with Dr. Shiffman medical competence and evaluation.
Great manner - very caring and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend her.
Excellent and pleasant.
This practitioner is compassionate, insightful, and trustworthy. She is a good listener & that is at least 75% of the battle today in quality healthcare. I look forward to resolving many nagging problems while taking my health to the next level!
Very thorough, very helpful, and personable.
Dr. Shiffman listened to my concerns and gave sound and thoughtful advice. I will be a long time patient.
Very nice and patient!
Dr. Shiffman is easily the nicest doctor I've ever had and only the second one I felt was really listening to me rather than talking at me. I appreciate her willingness to suggest natural remedies for problems like allergies. She made what could have been a nerve-wracking experience (seeing a brand-new doctor) pleasant.
She was great. Really friendly and nice. I would highly recommend her. And the facility is great. They have their own lab in-office so you don't have to make any extra trips.
She listened to what I had to say, was personable, compassionate and efficient. Thank you. Regina
I appreciate that they are open to alternative medicines, ideas, issues. They are thorough and respectful. I continue to consider them my first stop for all medical questions.
Very thorough! I've never had a doctor spend so much time with me.
Dr. Schiffman was on time and had prepared for my appointment by reviewing my history and information provided. She listens attentively to your concerns and patiently answers any questions you have. She is very professional in her demeanor, thoroughly explains everything and doesn't rush through the visit.
I think Dr. Shiffman was very thorough, holistic and easy to speak to. She is professional, yet very approachable. Our topics of conversation varied and I felt vey comfortable sharing my personal information and concerns to a total stranger! I have confidence she will get to the root causes of my symptoms and help me on the road of recovery. The only reason why I put "probably recommend" is because I have seen her only once and not yet experienced her recommendations.
It was great! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
