    How was your appointment with Dr. Shifrin?

    Jan 12, 2023
    Extremely satisfied with the care received from Dr Shifrin and his staff. Diagnosed with thyroid cancer and was referred to Dr Shifrin as an expert in the field. Scheduled total thyroid removal within 2 weeks of my first visit. Surgery was without complications and follow up showed clear margins and cancer free. Dr Shifrin is thorough, explains diagnosis, ensures all questions are answered, and works quickly to move towards a cancer free scenario. Absolutely recommend him!
