Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Schaefer is a good surgeon - she is thorough and empathetic. She uses common sense. Unfortunately, that cannot be said for office protocol. They will not see you without films even though you have been a patient. The insurance Company seems to be dictating office procedures and protocol and sometimes their rules just don't make sense.

Arrived without my films, my fault. I wanted to still talk to the doctor about my report of the films. I had to beg for this to happen.Doctor agreed to see me in the exam room. Frst greeted extremely rudely by her Nurse Practitioner, the dr.came in, she did not close the door but began to let it be known that she was not happy having to see me without my films. Feeling so uncomfortable at this point, i made the decision to get up and left in tears. this is not a dr for me and would not recommend

I was very displeased with my consultation with dr. Schaefer. In my opinion, I found her bedside manner to be very very poor. I found her to be harsh, invasive, and extreme in her approach and I personally found her to not at all listen to me. I found her abrupt and not at all kind-mannered. I have since had my benign fatty tumor removed by another surgeon and there is no way I would ever consider using her or the practice personally and I personally would not recommend her based on my experien
