Dr Schaeffers office scheduled spinal injections for me with his assistant. I had to pay something before they even started. They told me that I was preapproved which I wasn’t and then took me in for the procedure which they aborted just as they were finishing numbing injections. They then billed insurance for the full procedure. They would not release my medical records to me and did not until I told them that I was getting a lawyer. They the sent the records minus a mention of the aborted proc

I think Dr. Schaeffer is the best! Here’s the deal- Dr. Schaeffer knows so much about insurance and comp and is a great Dr. He will help you but if you are rude to any of the staff - curse or yell at anyone he will tell you to find another Dr. you can’t be rude to the check in girl and then be all nice to him. And he’s always super super late because he’s in charge and taking care of everything! If you can’t wait don’t go.

Dr. Schaeffer's is one of the only doctors to tell me the truth but I didn't like hearing it at first. He understands everything about how com works and helped me get what I NEEDED from comp to start feeling better. But you need to know YOUR WILL BE KEPT WAITING! I was in a lot of pain so I was willing to wait and hour or even a little more. This isn't McDonald'so folks -I don't need fast I needed quality.

I have been seeing Dr. Schaeffer for about 10 years on and off for different tests etc. Hes a great guy. I never feel rushed and he takes the time to actually listen to my problems. There may be a slight wait to get in but thats the norm for any Dr. who is in the specially field. would recommend him to anyone who needs top notch care.

I have had neuropathy in my feet since 2014 due to the chemo drug Taxol for breast cancer. Although I have seen other doctors for this condition, I feel that after my first visit with Dr. Schaeffer, I have a clear understanding as to why the meds he prescribed might do the trick of reducing the pain. I found him to be caring and concerned. I highly recommend him for women who are experiencing pain from chemo drugs!!!!

Dr. Schaeffer sometimes runs very behind but he is a great doctor. I switched for a while but came back to him. Hi is honest and very smart. If I have to wait for the best care I will. Not all doctors are honest and ethical, waiting is worth it!

Making a treatment plan took longer than I thought it would, and I didn't actually receive a procedure until the third visit. However after the initial planning, I had a plan I was comfortable with and received an injection. My pain is now almost completely gone, and very manageable.
