Patient Comments (2)
in Lansing, MI |
I saw Dr. Schafer for a cardiac work up after an emergency room visit for chest pain and episodes of vertigo as well as lightheadedness during a physical stress test. He was thorough in his explanations about possible causes as well as the tests he ordered for evaluation of my symptoms. He answered all my questions and never seemed rushed to finish up and move on as is the way with so many physicians. I do think he is some what shy and this may be misinterpreted as not caring.
Lansing, MI |
Although he has the credentials he is short and does not listen to his patients. Somewhat condescending with his demeanor and did not even check in on me after ICD implant procedure. Overall he lacks the kind of attention people look for when suffering from heart disease. I am currently looking for a new cardiologist.
