I felt like Dr Shaffer respected me as a decision maker. He made me feel like I was a partner in the decision making process I ended up having a total shoulder surgery at The Surgical Institute of Reading where I felt like I was on holiday instead of a patient I have never had such a positive medical experience
I went in for elbow pain, and Dr. Shaffer listened to my symptoms and confirmed 'tennis elbow'. He gave me several suggestions to heal the my elbow, even going as far to say that surgery was always a last option. He suggested OT and maybe a shot if the OT didn't jump start the recovery process. After several months of OT, and one shot, I can happily report my elbow is fine.
Dr. Schaffer went above and beyond in the treatment of my sons injury. He took the time to explain not only the injury but the treatment to myself but most importantly to my 11 year old son. His knowledge and skill was well beyond any I have encountered in our town. We are very sad he and his family moved.
