Patient Comments (1)
in Modesto, CA |
Overall, my experience with Dr. Schaffert has been excellent. As my dad's neurologist, we were lucky to get him for treating my dad's Parkinson's. My dad received his DBNS implant under his care. I take my dad to see Dr. Schaffert every 3 to 4 months, to help manage his Parkinson's. He does have a busy schedule, but when needed we are able to get in to see him. Dr. Schaffert has been very open to any questions that I have, as well as including family in appointments.
