What People Say About Dr. Bradley Schaffer, MD

Dr Schaffer is amazing. Super friendly with a good bed side manner and professional always. One long time office staff member is just terrible to my husband every time he is there. She took his stitches out prematurely. She missed two of them. Never gives follow up instructions and has no personality. Too bad for her because he has such high expectations from his staff and surgical team. Maybe no one has told him. She’s got to go.

I suffered from Dupytrens which had my left hand almost rendered useless as a musician. After 2 surgeries and rejections from other surgeons (it was too hopeless a case, they wouldn't touch me), I went to Dr. Schaffer on recommendation from another patient. I walked in with little hope, but after an incredible surgical miracle I am back in action. He is absolutely the best as far as I'm concerned. He gave me and my hand new life. Words cannot express what this amazing Doctor has done for m
