11 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Schaffer

"Dr. Schaffer was all I could ask for and more for my surgery. Prior to surgery he answered every question and always had time for detailed explanations. He put me totally at ease. Because of his thorough pre-surgery testing, there were no surprises or issues of any kind during the procedure. Post surgery, he saw me everyday (as did members of his team, and always had whatever time was needed to again answer my questions. He is as skilled a communicator as he is a top surgeon. I am one day short of four weeks from surgery, and I am totally pleased with my recovery and progress. I highly recommend Dr. Schaffer!"
