As always, my appt started right on time and Dr Schaefer was very thorough in asking about most recent (diagnosed and resolved) issues and had a tip or two related to the aches, pains and slight memory loss related to theaging process. Since we moved back to Indy eleven years ago and I was introduced to Dr S. by a nurse friend I have found him to be the most caring and competent physician I've ever known. And that includes my outstanding experience as a Cleveland Clinic patient. From diagnosis to resolution to caring he's the best.
