What People Say About Dr. Peter Schaffer, DPM
Reply
When I saw the doc the first time for my corn, I asked him and the billing lady about the cost. They both told me I only needed to pay the copay for the first time, not the following up treatments, and the insurance would cover the cost. The lady told me she handled the billing for many years and for sure giving me the correct information. Her nice attitude and confidence made me believe in her. But turned out, I had to pay $25 for each visit for a total of $125 to cure my corn!! What a shame

Dr. Schaffer has taken care of me and my family for many years for all sorts of foot related issues and I think he is wonderful! His assistants, Lisa and Amanda, are professional and very friendly and Dr. Schaffer is a very talented and exceptionally caring doctor. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!
