Patient Comments (1)

in Vernon, VT
For all my previous life, I was never a person to run to the doctor but when I suddenly needed medical help, Dr. Tim Shafer was there. He has also educated me -past my stubbornness-to be proactive, not reactive. Always personable and easy to talk with, I am glad Tim is my doctor.
