“This was my final visit with Dr. Shafer, a year after my shoulder surgery. He put me at ease when I met him for my consultation prior to surgery and I will continue to have only the highest of praise for him. He is an outstanding surgeon and took the best care of me. His kindness and respect were much appreciated throughout my ordeal. He listened respectfully to all my concerns, no matter how trivial or silly they might have been. He guided me through my recovery and I will miss seeing him. I cannot thank him enough for the excellent care he provided. He is a world-class surgeon.”

“Dr. Shaffer is an amazing surgeon! I have had three shoulder surgeries with him. When I came into the clinic for the first time he did not make me feel bad at all. He listened to what I had to say and was very sympathetic. I had previously seen a doctor who kept saying it was all in my head and that there was nothing wrong with me (when he passed away I chose to go for a second opinion). Dr. Shaffer was able to diagnose and do the surgery within a matter of a few short weeks. I had been suffering in pain for 5 years prior to the visit with him. He fixed both of my shoulders before I hurt my left one again at work. After hurting my shoulder again he was able to get me in and fix what I had hurt. Words can not express the amount of gratitude I have for this man. Thank you Dr. Shaffer for everything you have done!”

“I had a ganglion cyst removed. Nurses were very patient and the surgery was very well organized. The anasthesiologist was also very kind. The doctor also spoke to me about what he was going to do. The procedure was finished quickly. I had time to recovery and was offered something to eat. It went very well.”

“We live in California and spend our summers in the San Juan Islands. Last Febuary, I had a slip and fall that resulted in a broken hand that required surgery. As a result, I made several visits to Skagit Northwest Orthopedics in Anacortes and Mt. Veron. The wait times, receptionists, facilities and the doctors were all outstanding. 49er’s in 2017, Washington Health care anytime!”

“I came to Dr. Shafer (after having 4 successful hand surgeries by him) for shoulder pain. He treated me conservatively at first and, when that wasn’t successful, he did surgery. The results were remarkable. His professionalism and care are the best. My shoulder is back to normal with great range of motion and no pain. I can’t say enough about the care I got. Keep up the good work.”
