Lynchburg, VA |
Dr. Mark Shaffrey performed a craniotomy (suboccipital craineotomy at rear of skull) to remove a benign meningioma (brain tumor) located in pineal region of my brain in February 2015. This required eight hours of surgery in a very delicate region of the brain, and I am thankful to have had such a skilled and dedicated physician performing this procedure. In addition, his entire staff is a tremendous asset that ensures the comfort and well being of patients at a time when reassurance is vital.

Dr. Shaffrey is the best doctor that I have ever visited! He is kind and caring. His skills and knowledge are amazing! I am so glad that I was referred to him.
Highly professional and able to solve problems no one else can. I am so happy that I finally found someone that could help me

Dr. Shaffrey recommended testing for my horrible back pain but said I could not take the pain medication that my primary Dr. Had prescribed for me during tests. Although there are many meds that I could take, he refused to prescribe a substitute. The man wanted me to suffer without medication for FOUR days. There are no substance abuse issues. If you are looking for a Dr. That cares, this is not the man. He also did surgery on my neighbors back and this poor man is having to have surgery again
