The best!

I just had MOH Surgery by Dr. Shaffer yesterday. Very pleased with the results! He is an awesome Dr. who clearly knows his stuff. His bedside manner and making sure you are 100% comfortable and know what he's doing every step of the way is outstanding!

Outstanding work, positive experience

I am so pleased with the results following MOHS surgery with Dr. Shaffer. Since one of the locations was right above my lip, I was very anxious about how it would impact my appearance. Despite having to get a bigger area than expected removed, there is virtually no visible evidence the procedure was ever done. In fact, I have referred several people who have observed the healing process to Dr. Shaffer at their request based on the quality of his work. Additionally, Dr. Shaffer was very attentive to my anxiety around the procedure, friendly and reassuring throughout, and saw my healing through to the end, making sure I was completely satisfied with the outcome. Very pleased!

I was so pleased with the results of the Mohs surgery performed by Dr. Shaffer! So scared that I would have a huge scar, after two weeks you could barely see it at all!

Caring Physician and Clinic

My dad had a cancerous spot on the top of his head, it required Mohs surgery. My dad was referred to Dermatology Consultants to have the surgery. He was given an appointment a few weeks out. I received a call a day later on a Friday and they wanted my dad to come in sooner, the following Monday. The clinic staff was very kind to my dad and Dr Shaffer was very thorough in explaining what he was going to do. The surgery was performed And a pressure bandage was applied to the site. Follow up instructions were clearly gone through and we were told to call the clinic I'd we had any concerns or questions. We were also given Dr Shaffer's card with his cell number and were told to call if we had any after hours concerns. My dad felt he had the best care from a Dr Shaffer and his staff.
