Doctor was cold during administering a painful test that she did NOT prepare me for, in any way. She did not review my case and she was not knowledgeable about my history. She offer no solution or comfort for my diagnosis. She recommended more tests, which she never ordered. I guess she delegated that to her fellow but it never got communicated. Still waiting. She has no regard for my time. Sent me for a brain MRI. Her fellow wanted my neck done too. Dr. Schaefer refused. Now I have to go back

I waited a full hour pst my appt. time in the exam room. Overheard a doctor telling a nurse that the exam room still had blood in it from the day before. Exam room was dirty, facility smelled. Doctor Schaefer came in, refused to shake my hand. Greeted my me with a scowl. I was told I had a full hour with her, but she remained only 20 min. She was rude, cold, cruel, interrupted me constantly, dismissed my pain and symptoms. One of the worst physicians I have ever had the displeasure of seeing.
