Dr. Shalfer has taken exceptional care of my kids! He is never quick to prescribe medication, only prescribing it when absolutely necessary and giving us the tools to help our little ones' bodies to do what they are built to do and heal themselves! He respects us as parents to make informed decisions about vaccines and has zero personal interest in our choice either way, only caring that we are making an informed decision. His whole staff has been an absolute joy!

Dr. Shlafer decided that he did not want to be my children's doctor because I chose to take my son to a walk in clinic when he broke his arm. The letter asking where I would like the records forwarded since I no longer trust his judgement. It was an emergency...He had a broken arm. I took my son to where he could be treated quickly. I have no respect for this man or his clinic.

Mr. Shlafer shared information about my ill daught with my sister. He broke confidentiality. He's also arrogant, rude, and takes as little time with patients as possible. When he was late to work and we had been sitting in the dirty waiting room for quite some time, he went into the office and talked loudly on his cellphone for all too hear. He had no qualms about wasting my time and then spent three minutes with us during our visit. His staff are also rude. Don't subject your child to this guy.

Shlafer tried to give treatment without explaining or giving me time to ask questions. Then, when I decided to change healthcare providers, he called CPS on me. I am qualified to be a CPS worker a I teach classes about children's health and development. There was no need for this vindictive action. If he was genuinely concerned that I might not seek alternative health care for my ill child, he could have called me and asked to confirm care with our new doctor. Deplorable and egotistical man.
