Kinderhook, NY |
Dr Schaeffer will prescribe you any drug you want, even if you have a history of addiction. I have had to stand by and watch multiple friends & family & many of the young people in Kinderhook & surrounding areas get hooked on &/or overdose on prescriptions that he readily provides, EVEN after being made aware that they a history of addiction! In this day in age, more responsible script writing is necessary. This is an epidemic that he is on the wrong side of. Shame on you, Doctor.
Valatie, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Schaeffer's for more than 10 years. He has been consistent in his care. He is very knowledgeable, listens well, shows empathy, follows up. I cannot list all the things he does so well. He is the best care provider I can think of because he really cares. Some notes on his office. The staff is courteous. Appointments are usually available when needed and wait time is acceptable. I recommend Dr. Schaeffer. He is an excellent doctor.

Dr Schaeffer has been my doctor for over 20 years and I couldn't ask for a better doctor. He is very caring and always greets you with a handshake and a smile. he is very through and will always point you in the right direction to a specialist if needed. He never rushes through your visits and always listens to your concerns. What other doctor gives you his cell phone number in case of emergency and you truly need him. He's the best and the only doctor I truly trust.
