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!
in Fayetteville, NY |
Very smart and methodical.
in Manlius, NY |
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.
