My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The goal of my medical practice is to partner with my patients so together we can create an individualized path to wellness. I always emphasize a healthy lifestyle and natural remedies first, but will judiciously use medications when necessary. I also believe in being open-minded and I consider all possible choices, including Chiropractic, Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine or any other modalities that I think can benefit my patient.

I would like to celebrate my doctor, Dr. Robert Schiff for National Doctor's Day. He is a wonderful Doctor to me. The past year was a challenging time and task in caring for my elderly mother.

Dr. Schiff is the best, most compassionate doctor I have ever experienced.
He helped me through my fight with cancer, stood bye me and was always reachable.
And nothing has changed, he still is my trusted physician. Bless yo Dr. Schiff!

from Kent in HI February 26, 2024 for Robert L. Schiff, MD

Rather than one “specific” MOMENT, it is more telling of Dr. Schiff to talk about “always caring and always being there”. He cares deeply and is always there unconditionally. His alignment first on knowing his patients is paramount to his ability to deliver high quality and caring individualized service. You don’t find this today in the medical field.

His response time and follow up… See more

from Arsenia in HI February 16, 2024 for Robert L. Schiff, MD

I am happy to share my thoughts about my super primary care physician. I am truly blessed to have Dr. Schiff as my primary care doctor because in addition to being a caring, very knowledgeable doctor, he is also gracious, friendly, and kind. I am comfortable asking him questions and discussing treatment options because he takes time to listen and he explains abstract medical concepts into… See more

My wife was hospitalized for over a month. Dr Schiff would often visit her early in the morning before he reported to his office. His presence comforted her, and i believe his knowledge & discussion w/ hospital doctors led to diagnosis of gastroparesis!

For me, Dr. Schiff takes the time to listen to my concerns & doesn't just prescribe medication.

from Russell in HI February 12, 2024 for Robert L. Schiff, MD

Dr Schiff has been a good partner in my quest to live a healthier lifestyle. He is considerate when we have discussions about my concerns and his recommendations, which sometimes don't align. Perfect. That is what a doctor/patient relationship is supposed to be.
