I had to have laser in my eyes for potential glaucoma. I was very scared and thank goodness Dr. Shaaf insisted. He made it so easy....it was much less stressful than I thought, and other Drs. since then have told me he did a good job. I don't worry about high pressure anymore.

Because he is good I imagine he can get away with seeing patients every 8 minutes. with extremely long waits because often there is a patient that requires more than that

I think he is a marvelous doctor. He is, however incredibly over scheduled with an overworked staff that is abrupt to the point of rudeness. Bring a book
