    I visited Dr. Shaffer's office twice. The first visit she was very compassionate and caring. The second visit, she was in a hurry (busy office) and actually shouted to me when I was checking out to "have flu shot". Before my third visit I had a severe ear ache and called her office early in the morning - asking if she could write a script and/or see me for 5 minutes. I was referred to Urgent Care in Lynn Haven (I live at the beach). I need a physician who will help in emergency situations.

    Dr. Shaffer has been our family physician for many years. She is thorough, knowledgeable and treats my family with the utmost respect. She was instrumental in helping me establish specialized care through a significant health crisis. Her office staff is helpful and friendly.

    I have been seeing Dr. Shaffer for several years. I have been absolutely happy with Dr. Shaffer and her staff. They are all very caring and efficient. Dr. Shaffer leaves nothing unquestioned. She is quite thorough with arriving at a diagnosis. I am happy that I am older than she and her staff, so I don't have to worry about them retiring and me being without them as my primary care team. I, simply, would not consider replacing them!
