"Dr. Schaffer is an amazingly, brilliant surgeon. His bedside manner is without question top notch. Kind, considerate, and in tune with his patients. You won’t leave until he’s sure you’re okay to leave and takes every precaution to ensure that. In my opinion there’s none better than Dr. Justin Schaffer.... he saved my life without question and I’m truly blessed that he did!!!"

"During this time, Dr Schaffer or his staff have always been there for me and my family. He answered every question and concern, providing easy answers for us to understand. His staff provide data on options and valve types for us to research. After discharge he stepped when my cardiologist refused to post manage my care. So far I am very impressed with him and his staff."
