Dr. Jerome Schofferman

Dr. Schofferman is a retired internist with a 30 year practice in pain medicine. He is primarily interested in psychological responses to chronic illness, mostly liver diseases. Dr. Schofferman has PSC and was transplanted in 2014, so he has the double perspective of patient and physician.
