Specialties

Dr. Inna Shifrin has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

A knowledgeable doctor, but with certain caveats

This doctor is usually polite, she is quite knowledgeable and experienced. However, she spends little time with her patients, Also, she does not always know proper procedures for prescribing some medicines, so obtaining them at a pharmacy may take several trips there. But the WORST problem here is with an Ave U office where she practices. The office staff confuses billing, do not answer phones, start working late and end work early. They set a bunch of weird rules about who must call what front desk assistant on what days and times. And it takes notoriously long to get a regular appointment to see the doctor. Plus, it takes around an hour of wait time at the office to be seen by the doctor.

Great doctor, horrible office

The doctor is nice and professional. But the office at 95 Ave U, Brooklyn, is no good. Horrible waiting times (more than one hour), exceptionally hard to set an appointment, they slam phones on you, some staff members are rude and purely inept, billing errors are systematic.

Dr. Shifrin is the best. She may be very busy however, she spends time with you and talks to you. She's an excellent Dr. She's very smart and is very caring. Dr. Shifrin makes you feel like your her only patient and listens to what you are saying. You feel very comfortable talking to her. Her diagnosis are spot on. She will prescribe what you need and will also suggest other ways to help you feel better. She runs the necessary test needed to help find out what's wrong with you.

I think she's the best.
