Did you know...

Dr. Shaffer has quite a green thumb, and when she’s not in the office she enjoys spending time in her garden.

not a fan of hospitals/clinics or needles my first visit was a good experience staff and nurses very friendly and can joke with them made everything more relaxing Dr. Cohen explained the whole procedure and answered all my question before performing the biopsy thumbs up to the whole crew. 1 week later had follow up for excision with Dr Shaffer once again a comfortable relaxing experience from nurses and doctors way to go Vandals Heights very professional

Amazing dedicated doctors who really care about their patients. Dr J Shaffer performed the Moh's surgical technique on my chin/neck after being diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma and his partner (and wife) Dr K Shaffer has been working on the scar treating me with different lasers.I recently became a dermatology patient of Dr K Shaffer and she performed the most thorough body scan I have ever had. She explained everything she saw. She found two suspicious areas that she biopsied same day and sent off to the lab. She promptly called me the next business day to say that melanoma was found at its earliest stage and I was back in the office the next day to have Dr J Shaffer remove the mole and stitch me up. I will be returning in two weeks for a follow-up.I am grateful for the caring demeanor of these healthcare professionals.

I have been cared for by Dr. Hauge and Dr. Shaffer on multiple occasions. I would recommend them without reservation. Great physicians who take the time to connect with their patients.
