I've been taking my kids to Dr. Schaffer for 19 years. She is patient, caring, and passionate about her profession. Love her.

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....more
