Dr Ted Shaffer has been my primary doctor in Civilian service since I moved back to Pittsburgh in 1979. The information he has provided and the pointers he gave have done much to enable me to be a person in the best possible conditions based on what I have experienced through life. I hope he is able to continue his services provided through the Glenshaw Medical service as long as possible.

I've been a patient of Dr. Schaffer's for years. I have confidence in his knowledge and capabilities. He and Carol are easy to talk to and always thorough during my visits. The entire office staff at Glenshaw Medical are friendly and helpful (especially Lynn at the front desk). And just FYI, I don't really like the new sign in kiosks and the device that reads my fingerprint.

Dr Schaffer is a caring and knowledgeable Doctor.
Dr. Schafer and his staff are wonderful. They are friendly and caring, take time to explain but what sticks out most in my mind is how warm, friendly and humorous they are. It helps to relieve the stress of the situation.
Dr Shaffer and his assistant, Carol, always treat me with the highest level of professionalism. I have been going there for several years and intend to continue.
Dr. Schaffer spent a lot of time with me. I am terrible about making a yearly physical appt. and hadn't done it for 2 years. His office called me last month to give me my mammogram results (even though ordered by my gyne, whom I never heard from) and reminded me that I should come in. Since I hadn't been in to see Dr.. Shaffer in 2 years, he spent a lot of time with me. He never seemed impatient even though I probably set him back for the day.
I have absolute confidence in Dr. Schaffer. I trust him with my life.
Ted is a long time friend and GP. My most recent visit was an annual check up (later than the usual in November) brought on by a trip to the emergency room. No blood tests or other tests as I received the gamut of tests during my emergency room and resultant 1 day hospital stay. I'm very happy with the service Ted provides.
Dr Shafer is an excellent Doctor and I highly recommend him.
