dr Ted Schaffer is an excellent doctor & has been my doctor for over 30 yrs. he has taken the time to know me & know my health problems thoroughly. I trust him and when he needs to refer me to a specialist he has referred me to the best

Thought the "Wellness survey was intrusive and frankly inappropriate. Dr. Schaffer is, as usual, a bright spot in my day.

Great care. The doctor was able to see me right away to give me advice and get me started on a prescription. When the insect bite later became infected, I was able to call and talk to the nurse about the symptoms and was able to get a prescription without coming back in - great experience.

I was taken to see Dr. Schaffer the very next day. I'm pretty sure he squeezed me in on his lunch break because when I called the scheduling people they told me I couldn't get an appointment until the end of August. I was in too much pain to wait that long so they told me they would call his nurse. I was able to be seen the very next day.
