Blacksburg, VA |
Refused to see my mother simply because she is a smoker. I thought everyone deserved care? He needs to be knocked off of his high horse.
in Mount Juliet, TN |
Extremely knowledgeable and skilled. Answers all questions thoroughly and clearly. Doesn't operate until absolutely necessary and all other options tried. Absolutely the best spine surgeon anywhere
Harrisonburg, Va |
Excellent information about pros and cons of surgery. Anesthesiologist highly praised him and noted his dual specialities-neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery. Excellent surgical aftercare as well as follow-up for a long period. Shared and explained all x/ray and mri results. Brilliant surgeon with an outstanding bedside manner.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Shaffery did emergency surgery on me May 4, 2011 after breaking my C1 and C2 bones in my neck after a car accident. I broke it in several places. I owe him and God my life. When I went for my follow-ups he answered my many questions in plain and simple terms. I am ever grateful to him and his team.
in Luray, VA |
He excellently explains what has happened and what will need to be done to move forward. He is always willing to answer any question you may have about your condition and he will provide ways to help move you forward with your recovery.
