Ratings for Dr. Ira Shafran
I have been seeing Dr Shafran for almost 10 years (have UC). After living in the New York /New Jersey area and seeing top Drs like Dr Waye who Invented the colonoscopy, i have alot of experience with gastros. Have UC for 25 years. Dr Shafran even came back to the office after i showed up 1/2 hour late for an appt! I had thought my appt was 430 but it was 4 and he had already gone home (with his beloved Kiwi). When they told him i was there he came back to the office to have our Appt! You ABSOLUTELY CANNOT GET THAT FROM ANY DR I HAVE EVER SEEN! God bless Dr Shafran and his staff ! Including all canine companions!
Prepare to be given a weight and physical consult from the doctor's wife, I've never been so humiliated in a public setting by a healthcare professional. She doesn't even have a medical license! I will not be returning to this office.
I saw Dr Shafran for a few years- I have severe crohns and I wanted to become established with him because he is involved with clinic trials (which I never was able to participate in the one I hoped for because I was excluded for FAILING TOO MANY medications!) - he was still a nice man and I followed our treatment plans - I was receiving routing stricture dilations with him and during one he puncutured my colon! - I knew immediately something was wrong when waking from the procedure. He continued to tell me everything was fine -even though he saw my colon was stretched to it's max still with prep inside - he suctioned it out- .. He sent ME HOME to Daytona beach area.. Few hours later I was in so much pain I couldn't speak- 911 was called and by 4 am I was in surgery for removal of the area and now have a colostomy. - for the rest of my life (29 years old) This is my short version if the story - needless to say I never went back. This was 2 years ago in July. Cannot trust him after that
Insensitive and misinformed receptionist causes waste of time and money. I came to this office as a new patient with gastroparesis only to be informed after a 3 week wait that I was an unacceptable patient for the practice, I guess the doctor's areas of expertise is LIMITED.
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Ira Shafran through my 88 year old mother. He began treating her for an unknown disorder and has been relentless in his pursuit of an accurate diagnosis. He never dismissed her because of her age or the complications she presented. His kindness, concern, and compassion have been unwavering in this journey. I cannot express how blessed we feel to have him in our lives. He is truly what God intended when he created physicians.
This office is unlike any other office I have ever seen. The staff is wonderful, the dogs are a treat and Dr Shafran is first class. His passion is to cure the disorders known as inflammatory bowel disease to which he devotes his entire career. All have told me of his reputation and experience...and now I know why his office and his expertise are the best anywhere. A true center of excellence..Look forward to getting the long overdue help I need.
