Worst office staff I have ever encountered. The people who answer the phones are flat out rude. The doc is very nice, that's all he has going for his office.

Our entire family loves Dr. Shaffer and his staff

My son is 22 and has severe autism. I had a bad experience with another local doctor a few yrs ago and found Dr. Shaffer by accident. Since that time, our entire family has switched over to his primary care. We love him and his staff. I recommend them to all my friends and neighbors.
