Specialties

Dr. Russell J Schiff has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Poor

I had a bad experience. I liked the fact that he did an echo and ekg before we were seen but when we finally saw doc he minimized the patients symptoms by not really addressing them.He made it seem self afflicted.

beware

do not trust this office. They recommend procedures that can put your child at risk. I went to two other doctors for a second opinion. He was the only doctor to have a different opinion. I left his office unnecessarily worried over nothing. DO NOT GO THERE.

Amazing Doctor

I met Dr. Schiff after being referred for a fetal echocardiogram. I had the last appt of the night and was completely blown away by how much time Dr. Schiff took to go over the scan with us. He was warm, attentive, personable and of course extremely knowledgable. He put everything in terms we could understand. He even went over to get a box of tissues for me when I cried (over hearing some positive news)! Dr. Schiff is a dr who makes you feel like he really cares about you and that you are in great hands. His staff were equally wonderful and went out of their way to not only make us feel comfortable but also not rushed considering we were there way past dinner time! I highly recommend this doctor. Our baby is not born yet so I was unable to give stars for accurate diagnosis and follow ups but I expect those will get 5 stars too!
