SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Good listener.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

Dr. Hafer is very patient, information, and considerate. Always putting the patients needs first. Dr. Hafer put in a request for an ultrasound for me because I wanted peace of mind, though he said it wasn't necessary.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

care provider was fantastic

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Uncommon time and information was given. Not only very helpful and good care, but in the end this approach saves Dr. time by eliminating a lot of follow up questions and/or visits, which happen when appt's are cut short & patient left without full needed info

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

I tremendously appreciate my doctor, and the team he works with.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

Love Dr. Hafer. His personal attentiveness and sincere concern comes through at every visit.

SHC Patient, Nov 2016

dr hafer spent a lot of time with me to make sure my concerns were all properly addressed.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Hafer is an excellent doctor who really cares about his patients. He advised me on a number of issues and I felt much better after talking with him.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Hafer was outstanding, and my only disappointment is that he is going to a different position and will not become my primary care physician.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Hafer is the best physician I have worked with in my life. I am VERY lucky to have him as my doctor.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Hafer was great as he took time to explain my condition & provided several papers of documentation explaining my condition more thoroughly.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

Dr. Hafer was outstanding. I felt like he spent a lot of time with me, was very thorough in addressing all my medical concerns and even spent time asking if I had any other concerns. He was also inclusive of my child, who I brought with me to the appointment. He included me as a part of the decision making process, which I appreciated.

Dr Hafer is the best

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

This was the first visit. I will know better with time but overall first impression is very good of Dr. Hafer. It does seem that primary care doctors take less responsibility than in former times. A doctor in the past often was basically the only one necessary for most care.

Dr. Hafer is the most personable Doc I have worked with, period.

SHC Patient, Aug 2016

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr Hafer spent over an hour with me. He explained everything he was doing in detail and showed me pictures/drawings relevant to the situation. He discussed options with me and e-mailed a specialist while I was in the room. Extraordinarily attentive and professional.

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. Hafer is outstanding. He took the time to evaluate my concerns and my history to determine his recommendations, which he explained in detail.

dr Hafer always takes the time to listen and explain everything in detail to me.makes visits enjoyable.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Hafer is very attentive, takes his time, listens well, and is thorough. He answers questions carefully and responds to questions on MyHealth promptly. He makes referrals as needed. He's an excellent doctor.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Again I could not imagine having a better experience.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr Hafer sends me email replies day and night...he appears to work 24 hours a day. couldn't be more responsive if he tried.

Best dr. I've ever met.

The most attentive and caring.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015
