At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
Dr Schaeffer and Sotchi are beyond compAre. Somehow they found time to care for me on one day's notice and to be completely devoted to my cAre promptly and without rush. And dr Schaeffer encouraged me to phone him if needed.
Dr. Schaeffer Is AMAZING. VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, understanding and truly cares about his patients health. He wants to understand your current situation which in my case identified an incorrect health condition. Thru his diligence, we were able to determine I would be a candidate for Proton versus surgery, with Proton having a higher percentage of less effects. The entire staff is wonderful
I was attended to immediately and courteously when entering the faculty by all staff members. Dr. Schaeffer was very professional and knowledgeable in his field He listened to my concerns and took the time to explain his course of action to both myself and my spouse who joined us via cell.
I am 73 years old and I find Dr. Schaeffer to be the most professional and caring doctor that I ever have been associated with. His nurse, Marie, is also very caring and I feel like i am in good hands with this staff. J.Fiduccia
My Biopsy experience with Dr Schaeffer was better by a factor of 10 than my two previous. My initial visit was done quickly, every question was answered, his exam skills are superior. When I developed symptoms, Dr was on vacation. Marie very intelligently suggested that I undergo an MRI, so when Dr returned, we would be weeks ahead. The MRI showed some risk. Dr explained the options to me, and I made the decision to undergo a Biopsy. Dr did this in a way that was significantly less painful than my previous. We were finished in 15 minutes. I would be pleased to recommend this Dr for care
It's my good fortune to live near Chicago where I can be convenient to dr Schaeffer. He is always on time always prepared with knowledge of my history always has enough time to be thorough. He is kind and knowledgeable. I think that I am getting the best treatment anywhere. Somehow he keeps organized even though extraordinary number of patients. He is most knowledgeable. Sotchi is the best assistant imaginable including organization and technical knowledge and communication
I am extremely grateful for his attention to my condition and his timely addressing my need for care. Though he was all business with me l would bet that when he's hanging out with his friends he is quite witty and very funny. Otherwise l can't imagine anyone could have provided a better experience or outcome.
Dr. Schaeffer was terrific. Generous with his time. Clear and thoughtful in his opinion and advise. I had spoken to two leading doctors before this appointment and still learned critical things about my diagnosis. He also has a great unassuming way about him. I greatly appreciated that.
Dr. Schaeffer is always thorough and entirely responsive to my concerns and questions. He explains matters well. He knew I was very concerned during this visit about my test results and called me within hours of my visit to give me the report firsthand and his assessment. He is extremely patient oriented, professional and caring.
I have been impressed with Dr. Schaeffer and his team for their dedication and care to me since last year. They have always followed up in a reasonable amount of time via various communication platforms.
Dr. Schaefer is a true professional. Our first appointment was virtual because of the pandemic and yet I knew immediately that I was in great hands. He puts the information in terms non medical people can understand and makes you feel comfortable enough to ask questions. When you receive a cancer diagnosis you want the best doctor and hospital and I know that I have that with Dr. Schaefer.
I feel incredibly fortunate to have someone with the expertise of Dr. Schaeffer tracking my condition. My condition cannot be \undone\" but I firmly believe that I have a great expert and team on my side. Thank you all.."
All around great execution - removed a Gleason 7 (4+3) prostate plus a relatively large tumor - got it all so I should be cancer free - without doing irreparable damage to nerves in the area - job well done for which I will be forever grateful!
