Dr. Schaffer

"On January 6, 2020, I entered Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital in Plano, Texas where Dr. Justin Schaffer replaced my aortic valve and performed an abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.

I am very thankful for the excellent care I received at the Plano Heart Hospital under the direction of Dr. Schaffer and his surgical and nursing teams. Exceptional care.

Dr. Schaffer was very attentive checking on me multiple times a day during my hospital recovery, and the nursing team was very professional and exceptional. I can highly recommend this hospital and Dr. Schaffer for this surgery."

"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!!!"
