Dr. Schaeffer has been my family's physician for about 10 years now.

Dr. Schaeffer has been my family's physician for about 10 years now. He and his staff are very caring medical professionals. He has genuine interest in our well being, and takes the time to explain what is happening with our health and what we need to do to be healthy. I truly valued his interest in me over the past 8 months because of complications that arose from quadruple bypass surgery that I had earlier in the year. During a very difficult time, he frequently made the time to call me or my wife in the hospital following surgery or during my long recovery period to see how I was doing or offering to help in any way that he could. It had a tremendously positive impact on my wife and I knowing that Dr. Schaeffer was there and thinking about us. We regularly communicate on medical issues or questions on email now, and I am quite amazed that he responds relatively quickly considering the demands of his responsibilities to all of his patients. I feel that this reflects the real concern and respect that he has for me. Because of his medical skill, his compassion, and the trust that I have in him to do the best for me, Dr. Schaeffer has my highest recommendation to anyone who seeks a truly outstanding personal physician.
