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.

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.

Dr. Schaffer's Care Philosophy

While I am first and foremost an Interventional Pain Management physician, I take a holistic approach to the care of my patients. Ultimately, my goal is to bring my patients relief from their pain and optimize their overall health and wellness. I enjoy helping patients with the most technologically advanced procedures including lumbar radiofrequency lesioning and spinal cord stimulation, but I am equally satisfied by using an integrative approach to care when needed. These integrative approaches often include supplementation, home traction devices, portable inferential stimulators and spinal bracing. I collaborate with physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and rehabiliatation physicians to achieve a successful multidisciplinary approach.
