He is not MD, he is DO. He never made to medical school. My dad was in Maimo a year ago, and on Friday at 5PM Shifeson, DO, came to make "emergency operation" on him. My dad didn't need any operations, his aneurism was 2.5 and I was telling them that on Monday we will do operation with another vascular doctor, we don't want you. But Shiferson, resident and anesthesiologist pushed us. Finally, we called to someone who works for Department of Health and he left. On Monday nobody came to operate my dad, because he didn't need operation. Shiferson just want to make another unnecessary operation, as he probably did it on many other people.
