Patient Comments (1)
Austin, TX |
We've been unimpressed with Dr. Shaffer's approach in communicating and overall demeanor. It seems she is more interested in the advancement of her business than the care and personal needs of her patients. Bad bedside manner, interrupts you when speaking, and out to accomplish her own agenda. It's unfortunate because most on her staff are lovely to work with but our experience with Dr. Shaffer has been less than pleasant.
