"Dr. Schaffer is a excellent surgeon. He clearly explained the entire procedure he would perform on me, for my ascending aortic aneurysm. Dr. Schaffer performed the surgery on my aorta with flawless excellence. His post op care has also been excellent. My heart health is perfect and I am so very thankful to Dr. Schaffer and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Schaffer for any of your heart surgical needs!"
