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.

    Dr. Schaffir is hands down the best. His bedside manner & memory are amazing. I moved away & now takes me over 2 hrs. to get there but I wouldn't change doctors for anything. Truly the best OBGYN ever!
