What People Say About Dr. Jonathan Shafer, MD

This doctor simply does not care about his patients. My wife developed an infection and he just ignored it. When she showed it to him he stated that it "isn't my problem". We had to go to another doctor, with the same specialty, to even have the infection diagnosed. If you want to be treated as if you are important to your doctor this is not the person to see! He simply walked out of the hospital after surgery, didn't bother to talk to my wife or myself.

Dr Shafer is an excellent surgeon with a terrible bedside manner, no time for patients and a horrid staff. His nurse, Rhonda dropped bandaging on the floor then tried to use it, said all my medicines were safe when one needed stopped before surgery. She used dirty scissors to remove the cast, left 5 stitches in my hand out of 15, costing another office visit. The office refused to fax paperwork to the Drs, insurance and physical therapy. Dr Shafer won't spend 3 minutes, but charges for full appt

Dr. Shafer did a shoulder replacement on me and I could not be any happier. I am completely pain free and have so much better function to my arm. He is a wonderful doctor and I would recommend him to anyone!!

Wonderful and kind doctor. Took his time explaining my problem to me. Very compassionate. He came highly recommended by multiple people. They were not wrong. I would defiantly see him again. I have recommended him to many family and friends.
