This is is my first appointment but the doctor was verte clear in his recommendations and in time
I felt like they addressed my needs and concerns. Staff was very helpful. Have scheduled follow up appointments.
The first time I visited his office I was very impressed of the staff, they were very friendly, great service. Dr. Schiffman is a very nice person, friendly, cares about his patients and take the time to listen to them.
It was good
Everything was excellent including his assistant who got info before the doctor came in. Doctor was great. Explained everything he was going to do. Checked to see if I had any questions.
Dr Schiffman and his staff are very professional and there was not waiting time during the appointment. I will certainly recommend this doctor.
He was very rude and sounded more like a salesman than a doctor. His manner of speaking was demeaning and forceful. The P.A. however was pleasant.
Extremely caring, competent, and professional........Would highly reccommend
Me encanta lo profesional que es.la buena atención que hay.es excelente el Trató de todos en la oficina del doctor
This was my first visit. I needed a screening and an opinion on a cyst. I managed to get a follow up appointment for removal of the cyst within three weeks. The office staff was pleasant, the waiting area was not overcrowded and I found Dr. Schiffman to be very personable.
I am so far satisfied with the service. The staff was very Courteous. I hope the medications work for me. Since that was my first visit, I hope ever continue to be well.
Great guy... Quick & efficient
I don't know why they give 3 people apt for the same time & then you have to wait half an hour for them to see you. I was on my brake when this happened and make it late to work just to burn a wart! I was in the room for less then 5 minutes! But waited almost 30 to go in! & I got there before my scheduled apt.
Everyone in the office was very cordial. Doctor was very easy to talk to, very professional. Glad I chose him.
Muy satisfecho, excelente atención. Todo el equipo de trabajo es muy amable. Gracias!!!
El dr se tomó el tiempo para oír todas mis inquietudes, a pesar de comunicarme en mi idioma materno (español ) y el en ingles, su trato fue cordial y muy profesional al explicar tanto el tratamiento como los seguimientos que debo atenderme. Su equipo de trabajo, exelentes: fueron al amables y accesibles.
Such a great guy. See you some time this week!!!

Always works his hardest to help you with your problem and actually seems to care about getting you the fastest solution.
Dr. Schiffman is the only DO I'll go to.
El doctor excelente pero todos los medicamentos qie eran necesarios para curar las verrugas de mi hija tenian que ser comprados alli. No entiendo porque el no le receto algo de la farmacia si ella tiene su seguro medico
Excelente medico.seguire llendo con el
The ambiance is elegant, the staff is mindful and respectful. Dr. Schiffman is very knowledgeable in his specialty, I went for a 2nd opinion, and thus far after the consultation, things have been positive. Everyone has a different type of skin, I think Dr. Schiffman is the right fit.
Very efficient and thorough. I had to wait about 30 minutes while they checked my insurance even though I had completed all my paperwork online in advance.
Everyone was very professional, genuine, and freindly. Loved it.
It was great. Everything was straight to the point. You go in, out and you are done. That's all I needed.
The doctor is superb. Really professional and efficient!! However, The assistants and ladies working the front desk did not call us to inform us the insurance was no longer accepted. This was very discourteous and caused us to waste our time.
Very courteous and insightful.. pleased with my visit.
I scheduled the appointment and the booking program sent me several reminders before the appointment date to insure I didn't forget....can you day awesome! I submitted all the patient info and survey stuff online so the lobby wait time was like 10 minutes.....can you say awesome again! The PA was fantastic and the doctor was super nice, knew exactly what to do and performed the procedures right away.....Can you say super awesome! The staff sent the prescription to the pharmacy and by the time I got there it was ready for pick up....zero wait time....oh yeah that's super awesome again!......I have to tell you, all these people involved and their business practice get an A+. Top of the line service from start to finish.....Awesome!
Dr is very intelligent and has great beside matter he does give you expensivs meds but if your insurance pays it your good.
Very professional, efficient,friendly, attentive
The staff and Dr. Schiffman are pleasant. I was seen promptly upon my arrival. They do not have you waiting long periods of time and left alone. Dr. Schiffman is a licensed professional and knowledgeable in skin conditions.
Long wait over an hour. doctor was knowledgeable. Office seemed more for beauty treatments. 10 people scheduled at same appointment time. But I received the medical care I wanted for psoriasis and left with 5 prescriptions.
Everything went very well with the exception of the wait. I was not happy with the wait time. I waited about 45 minutes for the doctor to see me.
Loved it, Dr. Schiffman was very nice, he took care of my problem very fast and no pain
Outstanding Dr - Loves what he does!!!
Muy buen medico,el trato es excelente.lo recomiendo
Excellent care. Took their time to explain in details what was going on and prescribed accurate treatment.
HE DID A GREAT JOB EXPLAINING THE TREATMENT HE WAS GOING TO GIVE ME AND EVERYONE IN THE OFFICE WAS REALLY NICE. ONLY NEGATIVE WAS THAT I WISHED WE WOULD HAVE DISCUSSED WHETHER THE TREATMENT HE GAVE ME WOULD BE COVERED UNDER MY INSURANCE. I DIDN'T WANT ANY MEDICATION THAT WOULDN'T BE COVERED UNDER MY INSURANCE. I WASN'T ABLE TO GET ALL I NEEDED BECAUSE IT WAS TOO MUCH.
He was very nice and professional I will certainly go back
Professional, thorough and friendly
It's a professional, smart and an amazing doctor.
First time here, and beyond pleased!! So happy I was able to find such an amazing Dermatologist. I look forward to seeing how much improvement my scars will have. Highly recommend!!
My visit at the Lawrence Schiffman's Doctors Office was great. Doctor Schiffman was very professional and informing. The staff is amicable and welcoming. The office environment is clean and comfortable. I would recommend his and his staff's services highly.
The staff that greeted me were friendly, including the doctor himself. He immediately identified my skin problems and recommended some great products to alleviate or eliminate them. His office is immaculate. The wait time was minimal.
I strongly recommend this doctor. I visited his office and his service was excellent. He immediately diagnosed what was wrong. He's very knowledgeable and has a wonderful relationship with his patients. His staff is very friendly. His service is very fast.
Best Dermatologist in S. Florida. Everything from his office, his staff & Dr. Schiffman's bed side manner. The Office is brand new, very refreshing and bright. All the ladies in the office were very warm and friendly. Almost no wait time. Once I saw Dr. Schiffman, I felt he was very detailed on what direction he thought would be best for my skin. I left his office fully understanding everything and felt good about the plan we decided on. I would highly recommend Dr. Schiffman to everyone !!
I don't want just a short paragraph to write...I want more. This was NUTS!!! I was there maybe 5 minutes before I was seen, out of the office in less than 30 minutes from the time I walked in until I left. Staff: Super! They're friendly. It's a Monday when I went in and no one is grumpy. This is definitely a first. Doc: I needed a couple of mole type things removed and I expected, "Yep...it's a mole. Come in 2 months and I'll remove it." Nope! He took care of them right away. Super personable doctor and heck, if he was a primary care, he'd be mine! Overall: Before I went to reception, they'd already electronically sent my scrips over to my pharmacy. I asked, it was already done! Ridiculous! Thanks so much Doc Schiffman and team!
Very nice, staff was excellent. Doctor knew what I needed right away
Doctor was nice
Dr. Was great he took the time to answer all my questions
Beautiful Office, easy to park, great staff. The Doctors is very good but in my opinion does not take the time to listen the patient's concerns. I felt he was in a hurry to run to another room or he just wanted to go home early. Anyways, I still think he is a very good professional.
Todo el personal es muy profesional.
The office staff are very pleasant. Dr Schiffman is straightforward, he explains everything thoroughly and answers any questions. He's eager to help. I would definitely be going back to this office.
Doctor: Courteous and professional. He knows what he is DOING! He kept me informed about my treatment; additionally tackled other issues that I did not even address. He listens and does a profound eval. Nurses: She demonstrated concern for my comfort. She also kept me informed about my diagnosis and printed relevant items on the topic. Arrival/Registration: The receptionist who greeded me asked that I refill new forms that I've already submitted via ZocDoc. I simply replied; what was the purpose of completing them online and she was able to locate them.
Dr. Schiffman is very professional. He didn't rush me and he made me feel extremely comfortable. He doesn't just send you out the door with a bandaid on your backside...he actually educates and follows up with you. I wish more doctors were like him. I'm a new pt for life and I have already referred people.
I have been to Dr . Schiffman's office a few times per year over last three years and Dr. Schiffman is best Dermatolgist. His staff is very helpful kind and well organized. As a medical Dermatolgist Doctor Schiffman takes concern, time and always knows his medical information and knows latest current information. As for a cosmetic Dermatolgist Dr . Schiffman is equally excellent. Dr. Lawrence Schiffman does symmetrical natural lip injections (the best) always has put my Botox and Juvederm fillings in exact placement. I can't brag enough that 100% Lawrence Schiffman is top of line doctor for medical and cosmetic dermatology. Always leave his office with great satisfaction !
Me pareció excelente
Best dr ever!
Sharp doctor, knew exactly how to treat the issue, prescription was on point.
Fenomenal, appointment on the dot. Love the doctor bedside manners overall visit was amazing office staff was very welcoming and pleasant and they definitely know what they are doing. Recommend very highly.
The wait was a bit long but that might have been because it was our first visit. Beautiful Office, Staff was friendly and helpful and the Doctor was great! took my 89 year old mother and he was attentive and treated her with respect. highly recommend them!
This is one of the best dermatologists i have been to...he takes the time to listen, very friendly but above all very professional!
The straff treat was awful, they didnt want to help in reference about my insurance coverage. Actually they lied about it, I confirm this after I talk directly with an insurance rep.
Several factors, Their phone recording had a different address (suite and floor #'s) than the address advertised through you. They could not give me a phone approval or weather my Humana Plan would cover me or what %. When I got to the office they informed me they do not accept Humana at all and would be responsible for the cost of the visit.
Dr Schiffman is great! Always discusses all the options, very personable and professional.
Very good Doctor, Nice staff
Dr. Schiffman was very knowledgeable and professional. He takes his time and answers all your questions.

He is very professional.
Dr. Schiffman was professional, friendly and caring. I didn't feel rushed and felt that he listened and answered any questions that I had. His office staff was also professional and seemed happy to work there. My wait time was less than 15 min. It was a good experience.
Awesome doctor and team!
He was very professional and polite. Take the time to explain and pay attention to the patient's concerns.
one of the best dermatologist in MIAMI.
Outstanding! Wasn't just another patient-mill! Dr. Schiffman took his time in discussing my issues and was very personable.
Very profetional,polite and smart doc i highly recomended very good expirience.
Concise, informative, friendly, knowledgeable - great doctor - Ive already recommended him to three people.
The waiting time was an issue ...specially that I had another appointment at 4pm ..but besides that the attention excellent and the doctor was excellent.
Very professional, took care of my issues right away in the office. Does not take all insurances so check ahead of time. He took mine with me having to meet a deductible first.
It was too quick. I felt I could not know a liitle more about my concerns( I came with 3 specific problems). I expected an examination of my face skin. So now after buying several products at his office prescribed by him I will wait to see how do they work. He Was nice polaid and let me use one expensive retymol cream I had just got it instead one he was prescribing in my consult.
Me encanto el trato y atencion muy profesional
He was very nice and staff is friendly as well.
Very professional and as always very helpful and informative.
Dr. Schiffman took his time to answer all of my questions and explain every procedure. His bedside manner is a well-balanced mix of professional and compassionate. Looking forward to our next visit.
Very intelligent and knowledgeable doctor. Also, funny and kind. Most definitely recommend.

The staff was extremely friendly and the Doctor was awesome.
Excelent , very professional he took his time for explain me everything, super polite ....
My experience at Dr. Lawrence Schiffman office was an amazing . It is so refreshing to enter and office and be acknowledged right away and told what to expect and then for things to unfold in that way. Everyone from the receptionist to the technicians to the doctor was courteous, pleasant, knowlegable and in point. Dr. Lawrence Schiffman was the best. I wish I had him as my Primary Doctor. he treated me like a person and not like the 25 patient of the day. He told me actually what my condition was, recommended treatment and did all of this with a smile. Cannot get much better than that. I'm so glad I found this office and I feel I got the best care and treatment possible. Great example of Great Old fashion customer service!
Es muy natural, tomó interes a mi problema, excelente profesional.
I received an email from ZocDoc stating I would not have to fill out any paperwork so I decided to get to my appointment only 5 minutes before my appointment. When I got there the office told me I had to fill out paperwork and it took me about 15 minutes to fill out the paperwork and then another 15 minutes until I was put in a patient room. So I didn't actually see the doctor until 30 minutes after when my appointment was. The nurse is not professional and it seems as if she doesn't even want to be there. When she call me to the back, the nurse had told me through the window to come to the back. The nurse didn't even come to the door to let me in; I had to let myself in. Once I saw the doctor, it seems as if he is in a rush. Although, the doctor did take care of my issue, I had more questions and could not ask the doctor because I was being rushed.
As usual it was pleasant. No waiting time at all.
Very professional, I went in for a rash and when he noticed some acne on my face he took the time to prescribe me some medicine and also took the time to remove some blackheads and whiteheads I had and set me up for a acne plan.
Great service and friendly staff
A trainee Dr. was involved, making things a little more complicated than necessary.
No wait for appointment. Dr listens and takes time to explain any procedure or problems. I did not feel rushed. I like the reminders provided by ZocDoc by e-mail and by SMS on day of appointments. Dr. seems to provide excellent care without unnecessary procedures or medications.
Doc appointment was great filling out all the info beforehand takes the stress of waiting and insurance verification... One small thing just all the questions they ask on the site if it can be transferred over to the docs office so the same questions is. It asked twice would be nice other than that this was awesome! Never booking another doc appt without checking zocdoc first!
Great! He's fast and explains In details what's wrong. I will be visiting him again
Dr. Schiffman was excellent. My work schedule is very busy so I always try to find doctors that are good AND punctual. Dr. Schiffman was great.
Very attentive and explains everything.
He is very pleasant and an extremely good doctor.
First good experience at a doctor office
He is cool very upfront. He checks you very good
Hr is the best
Salesy approach and pushing OTC products easily available online for lower prices
Great! Will definitely be using him again!
I thought it was great. He was direct with information and very knowledgeable. The visit was for my 3 year old son and was kid friendly. The staff was also very nice.
PENSE QUE TODO SERIA BUENO, SIEMPRE POSITIVO PUES ES UN BUEN DOCTOR. AHH, Y SUS ASISTENTES TAMBIEN SON BUENA ONDA, ASI COMO YO.
Everyone in the office super nice and no wait to see Mr. Schiffman.
No hassle process. Showed up on time, they let me in within 5 mins and saw the doctor under 10 mins. My prescriptions were automatically sent to my pharmacy and I was out of the office under an hour. Every doctor should be like this!
