Dr. Shaffer fit us in to her already full schedule so that she could assess our daughter’s breathing issues. As always, she went above and beyond for us. She is thorough and so knowledgeable. She sent our prescription to the pharmacy in the building so that it would be ready on our way out. I was so grateful not to have to make another stop!
