Patient Comments (1)
The appointment was scheduled for 2 PM, he entered the room at 3:50. Dr Schaefer replaced my pulmonologist in this group; I saw him for the first time. Without apology for his late arrival, he was rude and abrupt and appeared disinterested in my treatment. He spent less then 15 minutes with me, but reported a longer time to the insurance. Last visit with this doctor and group, and I will NOT recommend them to anyone.
