Thought the "Wellness survey was intrusive and frankly inappropriate. Dr. Schaffer is, as usual, a bright spot in my day.
Great care. The doctor was able to see me right away to give me advice and get me started on a prescription. When the insect bite later became infected, I was able to call and talk to the nurse about the symptoms and was able to get a prescription without coming back in - great experience.
Doctor knows my needs before I do and advises actions
I was taken to see Dr. Schaffer the very next day. I'm pretty sure he squeezed me in on his lunch break because when I called the scheduling people they told me I couldn't get an appointment until the end of August. I was in too much pain to wait that long so they told me they would call his nurse. I was able to be seen the very next day.
Always good experiences.
i am satisfied with this Dr.
Good ---= staff !!
I've been seeing this doctor for some time in fact for many years. I've gone through a lot of physical and family changes in that time. the doctor seems to be very sympathetic and really listens to me. when I have had my check up he sometimes mentions to me something about my health that I haven't even noticed. this makes me feel really good to know that he is paying close attention to me.
Have been seeing this provider for 30 years. Very satisfied.
Excellent doctor. Would not ever see anyone else!
Te's the best!!
I always feel confident that Dr. Schiller and I work as a team. That's very important to me.
Dr. Schaffer and his team are outstanding. I (patient's daughter) completed the survey because my dad has Alzheimer's. I take my dad to his appointments. Dr. Schaffer spends time talking to myself and my mom alone and then with my dad. He is compassionate but also is truthful about Dad's illness. Dr. Schaffer and his nurse are caring, compassionate and available to my family as we journey through this illness. He is an outstanding doctor.
