9 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Schaffer

"Dr Schaffer is wonderful in every respect. I feel that he is the BEST of the best. He explained my aortic valve replacement and triple bypass in a way that I understood, and then felt very confident in him performing the procedures. His knowledge and skill as a surgeon would be a high 10 (on a scale of 1 to 10). He monitored me closely post op. His bedside manner was reassuring, precise and genuine. My recovery has been speedy and much better than I ever expected. I feel exceedingly blessed, to have had Dr Schaffer as my cardiac surgeon!"
