Dr. Shafer was amazing last July, when my 12 yr old daughter was bitten by a dog in the chest area. In the ER at Beverly Hospital, Dr. Shafer and her team not only did an incredible job with the medical aspect of stitching the injury (in an incredibly private and tender area), but were also very attentive to my daughter's emotions. I would enthusiastically encourage anyone with a non-emergency or emergency plastic surgery issue to seek Dr. Shafer's advice and expertise. She is wonderful!

How do you "forget" to speak with a family member, waiting for 4 hours, following 2 hour surgery? My wife had surgery a week ago at Lahey Beverly. I would think speaking with the family member, or delegating someone else to communicate, would be as important as scrubbing in. Thoroughness should be a priority. Dr. Shafer failed at following through. Surgical liaisons wrote my name, cell# accurately, since I was waiting. It leaves me to wonder if something else is wrong. Jeff Toye (angry spouse)

Could not have had a better experience and outcome. BEST CHOICE I've ever made was choosing Dr. Shafer.

My experience with Dr. Shafer was a complete nightmare. I would seriously caution anyone considering going to her for surgery. She seems rushed, unsympathetic and at some points I felt like she was just down right mean. I don't think she had any bedside manner and zero empathy for what I was going through. She made multiple mistakes with my care. Its clear that its all about the money and nothing to do about caring for the patient. Keep looking for a surgeon.

Dr. Shafer and her staff are always professional and reassuring as well as pleasant and friendly. Seldom does one find a physician who provides top grade skills as well as a warm and comforting demeanor. Being treated by Dr. Shafer and her staff come closer than any other physician to making a treatment into a very pleasant visit with a good friend.
