On our first visit Dr. Schaffner was personable and seemed to care about my daughters condition with thyroid cancer. On our second visit It was like Dr. Jekyell and Mr. Hyde or should I say Dr. JERKell. He seemed annoyed as soon as he came in the room. (which we waited for two hours after our scheduled appt. time) I told him my daughter was experiencing fatigue and depression. He became condescending and told her straight up to learn to "deal with it" their was nothing he could do. C a sleep dr!

As ex Air Force, Dr Shaffner saw a need for better treatment at the Montgomery VA. He gave up a thriving private practice to serve those who are serving their country. My other doctors say he is the best Endocrinologist in Montgomery.

Well, I think it should have been made clear to me before I saw the dr. that he did not accept insurance. I was shocked after the fact and very dissappointed. The receptionist blamed it on my referring dr., that he should have told me. They took forever to check me out, no one even would tell me what was going on. There should be a sign posted saying they don't take insurance. The receptionist even asked me when I first got there what type of insurance I had. UGH. Makes me mad. I liked dr. schaffner, he spent almost an hour with me. Although it seems he was wanting to test me for things I didn't think were necessary. Won't go back because I can't afford it.

That was a huge difference from my experiences with another endocrinologist in this city. I feel like I will have a true care "team" after leaving his office.

Doctor very knowledgeable and caring. Staff needs to be more caring and frienly, they barely even speak to the patient,and it would be nice if they smiled.

Staff a tad slobby. Dr. did not seem very "with it" concerning the problem I saw him for. Although his advertisement touts him as being a "specialist" in this area. I remained ill under his care for 11 months. I ended up receiving far better care from an Internal Med. physician and the problem was under control by my 2nd visit with my new Dr.

He did not examine me. He did no lab work. He basically told me that I was a hypochondriac and then bounced out of the room convinced that he had solved my problem. I left no more informed about my problem than I had been going in. I found a new doctor.

$250 is just for first visit. After that it's about $70.00. Some people might be put off because he does not accept insurance, but they do help with your insurance forms. In any case, he treats even very complicated cases most adequately.
