Would highly recommend Dr Shafer for anyone that is going through the process of trying to get treatment for Neuro conditions, in my case MS. He and his PA-C Stacy, along with his staff have been wonderfully supportive.

Looking for an office that is more attentive to their patients. My mom saw him once and his staff 3 times and they didn't have any idea what meds she was on after 9 months. Not going back here and can't recommend.
