      What can I say? My experience with Dr. Schaffner was hands down one of, if not the, best medical experiences I have ever had. After an out of the blue fainting episode caused me to collapse and hit my head and face badly, I went to the emergency room for help. I needed stitches and was told by three separate doctors that my nose wasn't broken. For another opinion, I found Dr. Schaffner on HealthGrades. Turns out it was broken in 3 places, needed surgery and Dr. Schaffner made everything perfect

      just the nicest guy. amazing doctor but just a great great guy. And that really really really matters when youre trying to find someone that youre looking to give large sums of money to for a procedure that is rarely necessary. I dont believe anyone could ever have anything bad to say about this man as a person. His surgical skills will speak for themself.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
