04/11/11 3 4 4 5 I completely disagree with the detractor's comments. Dr. Shiffman has been my Gastro doctor for more than 10 years and has always given me the straight story with his trademark sense of humor that I really appreciate. He has provided correct and immediate diagnosis of my issues and has provided valuable advice on lifestyle changes that I need to do to improve my condition. I appreciate his knowledge and helpfulness.
