My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The practice of medicine today is a blend of science and the "art" of medicine. As a physician comes to understand a patient's health concerns and philosophical approaches to their health care, the physician is better eqipped to personalize care by artfully applying the available science of medicine with the patient's individual needs and desires. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, my mission is to stay abreast of the vast medical advances available today and optimize my opportunities to fully understand all of my patients' personal health concerns and to utilize these understandings to provide the most ideal, personalized health care possible.

from Yvonne in NJ March 10, 2018 for Mark A. Schaeffer, MD

I count myself lucky to have Dr. Schaeffer as my primary care physician. My husband and I started with him many years ago and he has been a patient listener and a wonderful diagnostician. Throughout my husband's illnesses, he always made it a point to visit him when he was hospitalized, no matter how the hospital stay came about or what the reason was for his admittance. When my husband… See more

from Carl in NJ March 4, 2018 for Mark A. Schaeffer, MD

Dr. Schaeffer is the best doctor of all the physicians I have been a patient of in my life. Tellingly, I have encountered several doctors who themselves are patients of Dr. Schaeffer; he is a doctor's doctor!

Dr. Schaeffer was the first doctor I knew who computerized his office (about 2009 or 2010). Most doctors today STILL have not entered the digital world, taking notes on paper… See more

from Ed in NJ March 4, 2018 for Mark A. Schaeffer, MD

In late 2016, just prior to a colonoscopy, I asked my gastroenterologist to look at some swelling in my groin area. He examined me and said it was nothing to worry about. In January 2017, during a routine physical, Dr. Schaeffer noticed this swelling. I said that I think that the swelling was decreasing, and that I wasnt concerned. On the other hand, he was quite concerned. He sent me to… See more

Dr. Mark Schaeffer has been my primary physician for over 25 years. His medical knowledge is impressive but more so is his patient care. And his staff has the same patient care touch.

from Carole in NJ March 1, 2018 for Mark A. Schaeffer, MD
