      Wit anxiety over a skin cancer diagnosis and impending MOHS treatment, I found myself totally at ease with Dr. Shaffer and his staff. His outstanding sense of humor combined with his professionalism, made my whole experience turn around from fear to confidence. Dr. Shaffer is 100% compassionate, 100% professional and 100% competent with my procedure. It was quick and painless. Most amazingly, by the time the stitches on my face were out there was a scar most people didn't even notice.

      Why Does Experience Matter?
