About 16 years ago I was in a bad car accident on 290 with a bunch of friends on Labor Day. My face and head had sustained serious injury. I believe it was about six hours of sugery but Dr. Shufflebarger put me back together. He met with me for months after for laser surgery to remove tattoo scaring. He is an incredible surgeon and just and really nice man. He probably doesn’t remember me but sure do remember him. From the bottom of my heart thank you!!!

I have been referred by my physician to see this physician and was told I would hear from this office. It has been like five weeks and no call. You can call and leave message after message and be told they will call you back and it never happens. Very poor patient oriented

Not fully satisfied. Doctor Shufflebarger performed my operation for an injury I suffered at work. The operation went well, but the recovery was not as fast as he wanted it, so he just basically told me that he could not longer help me or see me because in his opinion I had reached maximum medical improvement. But I'm still in pain from this injury.
