Beyond a shadow of doubt, Dr. Schaffer is the BEST Orthopedic surgeon in Hampton Roads. Great bedside manner and most knowledgeable on surgery.
in Norfolk, Va |
I had knee surgery by Dr. Schaffer 3 yrs and 4 months ago after a motorcycle accident that was bad enough to have me air lifted to the hospital. My knee was a mess and I am happy to say it is in good shape. Altogether I had a very good experience with the doc, the staff and the surgery.
