Dr. Schaffer


-- Jack Teel, Aortic Valve, Valve Replacement, 02/20/2023

"Dr Schaffer rebuilt my aortic arch and cleaned up an existing St. Judes Valve from an aortic dissection occurring in 2002. He was great as well as his entire staff. I'm not sure if any other surgeon could have done a better job and have made me feel more confident in their abilities. I am only 5 weeks post op, but we'll on my way to a full recovery."
