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

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
