Dr. Shayfer is an outstanding doc! He has helped me with several different issues over the years. I complained about back pain and he offered me shockwave therapy. At first I thought it was a joke but after my third treatment I was 100% better. Truly amazing and so grateful for his help. The guy works himself silly but when you ultimately get his attention he listens carefully and delivers true expertise. Thank you as always!

Dr. Shayfer was beyond amazing. He has hands of gold. I hand thumb surgery for arthritis 8 weeks ago and not a touch of pain or even discomfort now. He explained everything and made me very comfortable. His office staff is extremely friendly. I was not looking forward to the procedure but am currently pain free and know that the recovery is going along great. He is very professional and I highly recommend Dr. Shayfer. I am a health care provider and very picky. I picked the right surgeon for this! Thank you Dr. Shayfer.

Dr Shayfer is an excellent physician!!! Three years ago, another surgeon had scheduled me for surgery on my hand and was insistent that my dominant hand would be painful and never work properly without surgery and a metal plate. Dr Shayfer repaired my hand without surgery!!! He ordered a special cast type appliance and lots of physical therapy. My hand is without pain and works very well. Thank you Dr Shayfer!!!

Dr. Shayfer over the last 20+ years has worked me through two frozen shoulders. (1 requiring. surgery) and 3 "Trigger Fingers" all requiring surgery. His knowledge, experience and care in resolving my issues has been excellent. I could not have asked for better care. An excellent staff!

Dr. Shayfer has treated me for a shattered elbow (complete and miraculous recovery through surgery: putting me back together “like a jigsaw puzzle”) and through PRP therapy which repaired my torn shoulder. I recently saw him again for another ailment and through his expert diagnosis and immediate treatment (ultra sound guided cortisone shot) I regained my strength. His treatments magically stimulate the body to get to work at healing. His staff is professional, caring and welcoming; it is always a positive experience.

This is the second time I have needed Dr. Shayfer’s care. The first time was a trigger index finger that required surgery. This time it was a badly bruised elbow. I find the doctor to be thorough and conscientious. When one talks to him, you have the feeling that he is truly listening.
