Dr Shaffer and his staff at Women's and Children's hospital was very kind and informative about everything that he was about to do, how much time he expected surgery, and the extended care needed, prognois and risks associated with my grand daughters removal of tonsils and Adonis. His staff helped with calming her down, along with myself, her mother, Sonya, and her little squishy lizard, named Marcus, who was allowed to accompany her in the surgery room during surgery. Just having him helped.
