I would rate him as one of the worst doctors I have met. Abrupt, arrogant, in a rush, loathe to explain things, contradictory in his statements.

Great doctor and great staff.

He has the worst attitude. Very short with patients and is in a rush to get you out the door as fast a possible. I was seeing him for over a year and he totally got my condition wrong. He prescribed the wrong meds that made me worse. If I could give doctor Shafer no stars I would because that is what he truly deserves
