Patient Comments (4)
in Surprise |
Dr. Schaffer is a great doctor who is very kind and thorough. However, I have had two incidents with staff that makes me believe from what friends say about their ophthalmologistx, that I could have a great doctor and a caring staff all in one office. Hopefully, the person who runs the office will figure out there is a serious problem of caring for the patients from his scheduler and staff. I hope I am not the only one who has complained about the problem.

Dr Schaffer and his staff have been very accommodating when it comes to both scheduling and patient care. He listens well and is genuinely concerned about his patients. I had cataract surgery on both eyes and my vision is better than I was a teenager. I can't thank Dr. Schaffer and his staff enough, they exceeded my expectations.

Be careful. office is an administrative mess. Anthem office is a 'feeder' office to get you to drive to Sun City.
Scottsdale, AZ |
The entire practice is top notch and well run. The staff is friendly and courteous. Dr. Schaffer is very professional, patient and kind. He seems truly dedicated to his work. His bedside manner is outstanding. He patiently took the time to answer all questions and concerns I had and did not rush through the exam. The treatment outcome was excellent. I would highly recommend this physician.
