This was my first visit with Dr. Shaffer.

I needed a new ENT service provider and made an appointment with Dr. Schaffer. Scheduling was reasonably quick and easy and I felt he answered all my questions. I had one concern about a week after a minor procedure and was able to speak to Dr. Shaffer’s nurse over the phone. All my questions were answered and I consider Dr. Schaffer my go to ENT.

When I called for an appointment they were able to get me in fairly quickly. Dr. Shaffer gave me options on how to care for my problem without bias and so far the one I chose seems to have worked well

More about Dr. Brian S Shaffer

Dr. Shaffer joined Urologic Consultants in July 1994. He was drawn to urology because of the breadth of issues encountered, from the simple to the extremely complex, the purely medical to the purely surgical. His fellowship in Reconstructive Urology has taught him to break down complex problems into their root causes and then develop solutions to address those causes. "For most of medicine, coming up with the solution is often the easy part," he says. "Identifying the cause can be a challenge and requires that we ask our patients the right questions and listen well." He has been a leader in the Portland area for the use of robotics (including the da Vinci?) in urological surgery, has appeared in Portland Monthly?s Top Docs issues, and was chosen as one of America?s Top Urologists by the Consumers? Research Council of America. Dr. Shaffer embraces any activity that gets his heart pumping, especially cycling. He loves to cook (and eat) and enjoys nothing more than preparing meals for his beautiful and loving wife and four daughters.
