DR. S has the knowledge and experience to address the real life issues of MS. Asked questions other nuerologist's never addressed. Does not skim over specific questions, with generalitie responses.

My wife called to make an appointment as a new patient. She has been given a tentative diagnosis of Parkinson Disease and chose to switch Neurologist. Dr Shaffer's website indicates numerous categories of ailments he treats. BUT, the receptionist said he only treats MS and headaches. Change the website to reflect that.

Unbelievable! After my MS diagnosis 8 years and 5 neurologists ago I had become hopeless. My disease was progressing, life as I knew it had virtually stopped. Dr Shaffer is not only brilliant, he really, really knows everything about MS from his research, but more important...he himself has been the guinea pig! Plus has a wonderful way of communicating. No white coat superiority BS!! I am choosing to put my life with MS in his hands!!
