in Sacramento, CA |
Dr. Schafer was one of the kindest and most thorough doctors I have ever visited. He is thorough and professional and took more time than any other doctor I have visited. He genuine cares about all his patients and I feel lucky to have met with him. He was on top of everything and explained things in a detailed fashion. I wished that all doctors were as kind and caring as Dr. Shaefer!

Dr Schafer is one of the best Doctors I have ever had.

Dr. John Schafer is the specialist who took care of my wife, Linda Ottis, who suffered with MS, for 20 years. He was always completely professional, well educated in his field, and a true gentleman who became more than just a doctor, he became one of our family friends. My wife, Linda, passed away in 2011 as her disease was progressive and eventually overtook her. I just came across this survey today and wanted to take the time to complete it and compliment Dr. Schafer and thank him.
