Ratings for Dr. Beverly Marie Shafer
My experience with Dr. Shafer was a complete nightmare. I would seriously caution anyone considering going to her for surgery. She seems rushed, unsympathetic and at some points I felt like she was just down right mean. I don't think she had any bedside manner and zero empathy for what I was going through. She made multiple mistakes with my care. Its clear that its all about the money and nothing to do about caring for the patient. Keep looking for a surgeon.
Always 45-60 min late for appointments. Had to schedule a second surgery to fix a mistake made during the first (and I was terrified the first time!). Wasn't told what to expect before surgery, so was shocked when I left the office with a long list of instructions and bandages on my face for several weeks. Horrible bedside manner. Don't bother showing up on time for appointments, they always make you wait for 45 min. Would never recommend this doctor.
Dr. Shafer did my breast reconstruction surgery. Although she didn't explain things as thoroughly as I would have liked, I found her to be very thoughtful and caring. Maybe I should have asked more questions. When I woke up in post op, I vaguely remember her standing next to me, holding my hand. She has a wonderful personality and bedside manner. I would recommend her to anyone in need of the services which she provides.
