Doctor was kind, took time to listen to my concerns, gave options for treatments. Friendly staff, did not wait much, about 10 minutes to see the doctor. It went everything well, resolved my son's skin issue in 1 visit. One morepositive aspect, not a long wait to get an appointment. My 1st visit was very good, addressed all my concerns, I was in and out, with the procedure, in about 40 minutes. Very HAPPY !!! Highly recommend !!!

There was a bit of wait time, and barely any seating. The reception Staff were okay. The doctor was ok to, he was straight to the point and talked really fast, his office was busy so that’s must be why. WhenI left the exam room waiting to be checked out, the nurse went into a room to change the bedding paper and yelled out loud gross what did I touch, and was behaving hysterical. And another nurse went in and told her I should’ve warned you, and was whispering and giggling. I have no idea what she really touched but but their mannerisms and behavior were strictly unpleasant and unprofessional for a doctors office, even if she handled something unpleasant she could’ve reacted more appropriate because she works at the doctors office not a mall, you would encounter humans and whatever comes from humans. I felt really embarrassed and horrible witnessing their behavior. You would feel like you did something wrong seeing this and wouldn’t want to go back there. It was not cool.

i understand this doctor sees many patients daily but i felt he did not take my particular case seriously due to my cancer history both personal and in my family. i had a white spot that appeared on my wrist andthe doctor told me maybe I dropped some lime juice on my skin. It had been weeks that the spot had appeared. I sought a second opinion and it was actually tinea versicolor. Thank god it was nothing serious but i could have treated this months ago.

Avoid this doctor. I felt extremely uncomfortable with the doctor. He seemed anxious to diagnose as many conditions as possible. He literally walked to me and started lifting up my shirt before asking me if I wanted to do a bodyscan. It was highly unprofessional and I had just felt so awkward front that point forward. I felt like his bedside manner consisted of what was in his best interests, not mine. I left thinking he must be under great pressure financial pressure and was inventing conditions to treat to increase the bill.

Dr Schiffman and his staff were professional and treated me with respect in every single way. Like every office, they had products that they sponsored and not once did they try to sell me any of these products. The office wasnice and clean and the Dr himself knew what he was talking about in regards to my condition (which wasn’t serious). If you’re thinking of what Dermatologist to go to, you won’t go wrong with Dr. Schiffman.
