Dr Shaffer is wonderful! I have dealt with her for both medical and botox appointments. I have to say that she is extremely knowledgeable in all areas, but I was so impressed with the botox procedure. She knows exactly what to do, informs you, and then gives you a chance to make an informed decision. Dr Shaffer is extremely careful so bruising is minimal if at all. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

She is very nice but ruin my back with too much of aggressive TCA, now I have post inflammation hyperpigmentation and my back is really spotty that is visibly 50% worse than original. I regret having TCA peel that is actually done by a dermatologist

Dr Shaffer has been my dermatologist for 5 years. She is excellent. She is thorough, she explains what she is doing & why and is extremely pleasant. I am a melanoma patient, fortunately caught early and no re-occurrence, so I am very fussy about who I see. I have complete confidence in Dr. Shaffer.
