Reviewed on Dec 30, 2019

I was at the visit for an assessment of my condition and feel confident about the information given by the doctor. I trust his expertise and judgment concerning my diagnosis. That's the reason I was there, so his poor beside manner was secondary. However, because his tone was demeaning and remarks were rude, even to my husband, I would not recommend him to friends. For myself, I received exactly what I came for... which did not include a high expectation for kindness.

Reviewed on Dec 30, 2019

I would highly recommend Cleveland Clinic, just not Dr. Shiffrin, unless one doesn't care about a doctor's bedside manner.

Dr. Shifrin is the best cardiologist that I have known in the past 25!years!!!

Reviewed on Nov 22, 2019

I know doctors are busy, and they try to see as many patients as they possibly could per day. But I?ve never had a medical condition where a cardiologist was necessary and all of this is somewhat alarming and new to me. The doctor seemed rushed, and any questions that I may have had or maybe overlooked and somewhat of a sarcastic response. sometimes usually ending with don?t you worry I?m the doctor let me handle what kind of response. Also having a cardiac event I thought maybe a little prompter Service concerning a stress test meaning a sooner appointment I thought would be morn Porten but instead my appointment was a month away. You would think something of this magnitude would require proper service that?s why I chose to seek a second opinion with another Cardiologist and maybe some prompter service. Granted I don?t know my condition I?m certainly not a doctor but like I stated earlier this is all new to me and I would expect a little bit quicker service considering the seriousness of the potential condition. i?m really not the type of person to throw anyone under the bus but if your heart fails you?re done. I didn?t get the feeling that the urgency or concern or care was there along with a little bedside manner.
