46 Patient Reviews for
Dr. Schaffer

"Dr. Schaffer was excellent. He was very thorough in explaining the condition, using heart model and drawings, and describing the implications of stenosis. Very calming manner, asked me to call him if I had further questions, checked in on me several different days during toy hospital recovery.

So far, the results are great -- I feel very little post-surgery pain and I am getting stronger every day. To have been a very scary ordeal going into this, Dr. Schaffer and his team made me feel like I was in the right hands and provided excellent treatment."
