We visited Dr. Schaffer today after our 2 yr old son had been experiencing a cough, throat pain, and had been grabbing at his ears. After going through the normal exam and diagnosis my wife asked if it was safe to give our son Emergen-C since we like to use it if we feel sickness coming on. She told her to "google it" and to "use your best judgement". We don't pay a fortune in health insurance premiums to be offered the advice of "google it". I found this to be completely unacceptable.

Our son had been diagnosed with failure to thrive out of the gate and our pediatrician from birth had been unresponsive to our son's needs. We switched to Dr Shaffer and she listened to our concerns and helped us come up with an ultimately effective plan to get his weight and health back on track. Our son is now on the charts and thriving.
