    How was your appointment with Dr. Shafer?

    Dec 09, 2018
    I went to see Dr. Shafer for a second opinion. He is extremely thorough and explains my conditions clearly so that they are easily understood. He listens to my concerns, answers all my questions and doesn’t through my appointments. He is genuinely concerned with you and help you find the best treatment plan. He is kind, thoughtful and brilliant, and I would recommend him if you are looking for Gynecologic Oncology.
