Dr. Schaeffer had just moved to Northwestern and still had not unpacked boxes. With all that, he emailed when we could speak , took all the time I needed, was very professional, moved up my date for surgery and has been available for me anytime over the past year . My surgery was a success and my recovery and subsequent tests are perfect. Words cannot describe how grateful I am.

in Kennebunkport, ME |
This doctor was arrogant, very short with his answers and adamant about doing surgery right away. I had been diagnosed with low grade, slow moving prostate cancer and was doing Active Surveillance but this doctor scheduled me for surgery ten days later on his day off no less and wouldn't discuss alternative treatments. He left me incontinent and completely impotent with little to no follow up consultation. I never should have let him touch me.

Provided 0 feedback after a cystoscope. It was clear that he hadn't read my chart before the appointment and knew nothing about my history. If he'd spent two minutes reading my chart/history beforehand, and spent 1-2 minutes with me after the procedure, I'd have nothing to complain about..but he couldn't find the time. Amazing. I get more attention and explanation from my landscaper.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Although Dr. Schaeffer talks a good game prior to surgery, in my case, I was left with permanent erectile dysfunction. When it became clear that it was permanent and I wanted to discuss it, he became cold and heartless. He obviously has difficulty dealing with his failures and so based on his horrible treatment of me, I gave up seeking solutions. He's a young bright talented surgeon, I suppose, but left me with a very difficult condition with absolutely no sympathy whatsoever.
