Please see below for testimonials from patients who have received adrenal surgery from Dr. Shifrin.
Patient next day after having a posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy
"It was lucky for me to have found Dr. Shifrin on the internet after my endocrinologist said I needed surgery for an adrenal mass. He had referred me to a surgeon in Lakewood who was not really familiar with this type of surgery. This made me very apprehensive. I did research on my own and found Dr. Shifrin who was very knowledgeable and assuring. The surgery was a total success. The scarring was minimal. I look and feel great. I am no longer tired all the time and have tons of energy. Best of all, no more MRIs every 6 months. I would recommend Dr. Shifrin to anyone needing this type of surgery. He is an amazing surgeon!"

After being diagnosed with having a pheochromocytoma and learning about how relatively rare it is, my first thought was were am I going to find an experienced surgeon? Luckily all the cards fell it to place. The Endrocrinologist team quickly praised the surgical expertise of Dr. Shifrin. Fortunately, his office was located directly across the street from Jersey Shore hospital were I was admitted. Soon after meeting Dr. Shifrin I felt so much more assured. His knowledge and professional demeanor was immediately apparent. He listened then answered all my questions. For certain the best possible surgeon for the job was right here. The surgery went just as he explained and the follow up went smoothly as well.
Thank you very much Dr. Shifrin. You and your staff are simply the best!

We loved dealing with Dr Shifrin. He removed an adrenal tumor from my wife. He was willing to take the time to thoroughly explain everything that was going on. So many doctors these days are all rush and leave no time for patient dialogue. He was very reassuring both before and after the operation. We have been very happy with the process and the outcome. Thank you Dr Shifrin!
