Dr. Shaffer is not just an excellent psychiatrist, but more so one of the most admirable human beings I ever met. He has incredible skill in relaying to me that I am pretty great despite mental illness. He is a psychiatrist because of his compassion to others and not because he wants to control. I hope that I will have the privilege of being his patient for as long as possible. Thank you, Dr. Shaffer!

He is hands down the most caring and passionate psychiatrist I have ever met. I have been seeing him for over 3 years now and I can only say amazing things about him!

He is the best psychiatrist I've ever had. We have some of the deeper, more spiritual discussions around how I view myself and healing.
