Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shafer "I know that every person's needs are of the utmost concern to them, and every patient deserves the time and attention it takes for me to fully understand their needs. My philosophy is to offer patients my undivided attention and to perform their surgery as if it is the only plastic surgery operation they will ever have or need. My background as an artist gives me a particular way of visualizing surfaces that I can recreate in three dimensions.  Artistry and perfection are the key. Plastic Surgery requires finesse, whether the goal is facial rejuvenation, body re-contouring, breast reconstruction or correcting unsatisfactory results.  I perform surgery using the latest innovations  and techniques and plan to continue to bring new approaches to my patients of the North Shore. Outside of the work environment, I enjoy rugged outdoor experiences such as high-altitude skiing and horse-back travel, as well as good cuisine and reading."

Dr. Shafer was amazing last July, when my 12 yr old daughter was bitten by a dog in the chest area.
