Patient Reviews (5)
Sherwood, OR |
My husband and I are so happy to have found Dr. Shaffer! After learning of an extremely high PSA and then seeing a urologist who was completely unacceptable, my husband was eventually seen by Dr. Shaffer (whom we learned about on Healthgrades). He is an outstanding professional who rapidly diagnosed the problem (advanced prostate cancer) and proposed a treatment plan with which we are comfortable. Dr. Shaffer is also very compassionate and positive, inspiring hope and confidence.

Excellent doctor for issues of the bladder. He operated on me and the results were better than I could ask for. Dr. Shaffer will be my urology Doctor for my years to come.
New York, NY |
I experienced abnormal pain and swelling after my vasectomy. Came back in to see the Doctor after waiting for 40 mins he told me to take ibuprofen and I would be ok. Over the next couple of days my swelling and pain has gotten worse and I cannot get in to be seen. Every time I get through to the office they tell me they will talk to the doctor and get back to me. It's been over 6 hours and I've called 3 times with still no call back.
