I agree with the remark that he tends to "think its all in your head", but would like to add that I dont think its related to whether or not you are female. I am male, and experienced the exact arrogance and condescension from him. He was unable to find a cause for my illness, and thus decided that there was no physical basis for it. He strongly suggested that it was psychosomatic (all in my head). I find this approach VERY irritating, and have seen it in many doctors, not just Dr. Schiffner. The truth is he is a smart doctor and very knowledgeable, and the irony is that I think that contributes to his impulse to jump to the conclusion that its "all in your head" once he fails to find a physical basis for your illness. I think he assumes that due to his knowledge and expertise, if there was something "wrong" with you, he would have found it. So when tests come back negative, he can't conceive of the possibility that there may be something that he hadn't considered.Very frustrating

He's knowledgable and dedicated, but if you're a female and he can't find what's wrong, he has a tendency to think it's all in your head. My condition was life threatening and I was just lucky that a doctor providing a 2nd opinion felt my symptons were real and kept looking until he found the cause of my illness. It was only by accident that I mentioned the story to a female friend and found that, like me, she had been a patient, and just like me he was unable to find the cause of her illness and suggested the cause may be psychiatric.

He is very knowelegable about his field; however, but he more interested in his own interest primarily money.
