About Me

As an obstetrician/gynecologist, I treat a variety of health concerns within this area of medicine. I am especially interested in those aspects of obstetrics and gynecology that are related to psychological and behavioral issues. These aspects may include sexuality, premenstrual mood disorders or other health-related concerns.

In my practice as a generalist obstetrician/gynecologist, I provide care for women through the full spectrum of their reproductive health needs. This ranges from family planning and pregnancy care to menstrual and menopausal problems.

I enjoy all aspects of care, from annual well-woman visits to delivering babies to performing surgical procedures when they are necessary.

Working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I know that there are many valuable resources available. Whenever necessary, I can refer my patients to the appropriate experts in any field. I know they will take excellent care of any problems my patients may have that are outside of my area of expertise.

In my free time there are many things I like to do, especially taking the time to enjoy a good movie.

    He is a very good doctor listens and always shows concern.

    Omg. Dr Schaffir is absolutely the best. I have been seeing him over 20 years for my gyn needs. I am so comfortable with him. He is so respectful. He listen. He cares. The best.

    Provider was awkward. He walked into the room and made very little conversation. I was made to feel like I had to keep carrying the conversation on. He didn't wear gloves or sanitize prior to patient care. It felt as if he belittled me over his thought of wives tales. I felt dumb for coming to my appointment and am left feeling like I wasted my time. He did offer a female medical witness but made it awkward in doing so.

    Excellent, He always listens and gives me great advice

    He listened. I haven't seen a gynecologist who listened to me in a long while.

  • Reviewed on Jan 09, 2024

    My care provider took the time to talk to me about everything and explain step by step what to expect. Again, I felt seen, heard, and cared for at each step in my appointment and what to expect moving forward as well.

  • Reviewed on Jan 09, 2024

    He talked as if I was stupid and gaslighted the pain I was experiencing. Also said he would test my discharge and only tested for two stds but never asked if I thought it was possible to have it. He was rude and unhelpful
