Dr. Schafer was alright for me The only downside was his office felt like a principal's office. I didn't feel like I was listened to fully. I went to a new dr and was told that the meds I was on weren't for my condition. He might have thought it would work but no one is perfect. doctors need to meticulously and fine tooth combed every single symptom to try to figure out what is really needed as far as medication or otherwise. 4 stars. You weren't right for me but that's how it goes.
