Verified Patient Reviews
I was quickly greeted and told what the procedure would be and when I voiced concern, I was brushed off and told that it's simple. I was then rushed off to meet with a "consultant" who basically gave me an estimate. After leaving I felt defeated and deflated. They weren't rude, just not very attentive. I felt like a machine in a factory that they had to turn a knob on.
Very impressed by Dr Schaffner. We took our 12 yr old son for an exam following a trampoline accident and a significant cut to his forehead. Dr Schaffner was terrific: Did a thorough exam, gave us some excellent advice on options and next steps and answered all our questions. He was clear, detail focused and efficient. Would highly recommend.
Very professional, but also very pricey.

Doctor Schaffner is one of the most compassionate and intelligent people I have ever encountered, in a medical setting or otherwise. I found him to be incredibly considerate, thoughtful and smart and in the short period of time I spent with him, he made me feel more at ease than I have felt in quite a while. Dr. Schaffner is clearly someone who respects and cares for his patients and his impeccable credentials and stellar reputation are obviously well-deserved.
Dr. Schaffner was great. Took the time To explain to me everything I needed to know. I never felt rushed. He has a calm likeable quality to him. Only downside was that my appointment was scheduled early because of work. But it felt like it was scheduled too early - all the lights were off in the lobby and it felt like the front desk wasnt quite ready to receive patients which is why it took so long to get seen. That said everyone I came in contact with was very nice and helpful.
Personally he was a gift from god I couldnt ask for more they all treated me like a baby .God Bless him best hands!
