Brian Shaffer, MD
I believe that providing the best patient care is not only being able to identify and deliver the best medical and surgical treatments for a condition, but also to foster an environment of open communication. With open dialogue, I can work together with patients to determine a treatment plan that fits in with their needs and respects their quality of life.
During his spare time, Dr. Shaffer enjoys electric guitar and spending time with his wife and three sons.
