I've gone to Dr. Shafron since he has been in Denton (many years) . I'm very picky on doctors and I find him to be excellent. Yes, you can expect a little bit of a wait because he's the best around and so many people want to see him. I have recommended him to many over the years. I see some complaints about the staff...Seriously ? I have never had a problem and never had a bad experience, and I have seen all 3 doctors . You are in excellent hands with Dr. Shafron.

Office staff is abrupt/rude, uncompassionate, and incapable of problem solving to help a patient in need of basic services. Shafron also seems incapable of handling challenging medical issues that require him to think outside the box. Every visit that I spoke with him to explain my condition or symptoms, he would be busy typing away on his computer with little to no eye contact or empathy displayed/shown.

Dr. Shafron is excellent. His staff however is NOT. They are very unfriendly and discourteous to patients.

I had been seeing Dr. Shafron for yrs. I found myself waiting in the seating area while others would come/go in shorter amounts of time & in some cases it would be 2 hrs before I was seen. Nothing was explained slowly enough, his staff was rude and didn't care. After switching to my new Dr, I feel so foolish to have waited so long. My new Dr explains things thoroughly, takes their time and really cares. Dont settle for poor treatment or service. Providers depend on patients for their business
