Dr. Shafa is a gem of a man. He is kind, considerate and caring. He is extremely thorough and knowledgeble. I couldn't ask for a better doctor. You do sometimes have to wait for a while but it is well worth it. My life is so much better for having known this doctor. I hope your experience is as good as mine

In crisis and called Dr. Shafas office for help. The secretary was insesitive, somewhat rude. At 60 she requested my entire life's medical records. i indicated that my last 'breakdown' was in '87 and she could not be clear as to what the Dr. needed. Was more worried about getting sued. Insulted and dissapointed to the max. made an appointment for June 8th 2010.. then found an office that really knows how to deal with the 'clientele' that calls. Fired the Dr. before I began,

I do not reccomend. Also too long a wait and could care less if it was emergent. Rude Office!!

Her attitude did not contribute or even come close to handling folks in pain with a modicum of sensitivity and as a result her boss lost a patient.

Pros: none- never made it to see Dr.

Cons: Rude, rude, insensitive secretary

Dr. Shafa is a kind and gentle man who will take the time to evaluate you and then work with you to find the best treatment option. You are in good hands. You only have to observe how he greats his patients and interacts with his staff to know this is a man with a higher purpose in life who is there to help you improve your condition. He tries to help as many as he can and as a result sometimes you have to wait. His services are very much in demand but I can tell you from my own personal experience if you need something more from him he will meet that need. I thank God everyday for people like Dr. Shafa. He is helping so many, many people some who others would have given up on. He fights for the best treatment for all of his patients and he works tirelessly. My life is certainly better for having met this man.

I have been seeing Dr. Shafa for over a year now. He is a very kind man and very smart. He also is one of the only doctors who does the naltraxone implants in the area. He is definitly the best doctor for substance abuse no questions asked. The only down side to Dr. Shafa is that if you have an 11am appointment so do 5 other people and everytime I go in I am waiting anywhere from 3 to 7 hours. The wait is frustraiting but I keep going back and so do many other people. I only have to drive 5 minutes to his office but some people there drive several hours and still don't mind waiting. So if you have patience he is the best doctor to see. I would give a 5 star rating if it wasn't for the long waits and the small waiting room. I think anyone would tell you the same info. Hope this review was helpful.
