I have been going to Dr. Schaufele ever since he was at the Emory Spine Center. I find that he is a very caring and compassionate man. Always goes out of his way to do what he can to give the best pain management.

Dr. Schaufele treated me for chronic mid back pain, and I found him to be very capable - with friendly and empathic interaction. He worked with me to find the cause of the pain, and then treated it accordingly. He explained what he was doing before he did it, and then asked for feedback after the procedures. I have already recommended him to friends, and will go back to him when the need arises. I had no trouble getting appointments, and the wait time was very reasonable.

Avoid this practice at all cost. Have been seeing for five months, impossible to get through their gatekeeper phone service. Had stimulator trial and lead broke. This condescending doctor tried to blame it on me. That way he can charge my insurance to do it again. Wait time over an hour if you can get appointment. No concern for patients. Just all about the money. Running a legal pill mill. Don't go there, find a real doctor practicing real medicine. If I could rate zero stars I would.

Dr. Schaufele is compassionate and takes ample time to review your records and listens intently to your concerns. Most of all he is extremely qualified and intelligent. He went to school in Munich, Germany, Harvard and Emory. It doesn't get any better than that. The best neurosurgeon in the country, Dr Gerald Rodts highly recommended him to me.

Dr. Schaufele is an EXCELLENT Dr. who cares about his patients, has empathy for your issues, doesn't make you feel like you are wasting his time. This Dr. actually reads the MRI you bring him, then compares it to the report to make sure what he is seeing is actually what is wrong with you. Does not take a report as gospel!. I agree that a report is interpretative of the technician reading the film, so different techs may see different things. A Dr. in that field should also be able to do so
