Dr. Schaffer has been my "pain doctor" for about two years and he has been the best. He has listened when I needed him to listen, he has actively worked with me in treating my medical issues, and above all else he has helped me tremendously! Compassionate, thoughtful and very, very thorough. I highly recommend!!

He provided trigger point injections to my neck and lower back with positive results.

Dr. Schaffer is a very caring and professional. I had a few injections then I had a radio frequency lesioning. That was the best thing I have ever done. It was a slight bit uncomfortable at times during the procedure but he talked me thru it and it was so worth what ever discomfort I may have had. I got 7 months of pain free living. I have spinal stenosis. The nerve did grow back but I am scheduled to have it done again in Aug. So you can see it was not that much discomfort to have done.

Once you get past the appointment maker, the Dr, and staff is great. With my wife in unbearable pain, and explaining this for two solid weeks, Margurett has been unable to get in or talk to anybody. Very unprofessional.
