Specialties

Dr. Alan G Schaffert has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

RUDE.UNCARING.INEPT

This office is the rudest, most unprofessional office I've ever experienced in 47 years of life. Had a stroke in february, my doctor spoke directly to the doctor to have him squeeze me in asap. That was 3.5 months later, in the meantime 4 seizures and a possible 2nd stroke. When my appt finally came, the scheduler failed to tell me they had two offices (none of which were the address on google). I went to the appt, nobody at office, only to find out it was in the town I live in. When I tried to call the phone rang until it said all mailboxes are full please hang up. When I told them that happened they basically called me a liar. I have phone records to prove I called 4 times! I got totally jacked and still haven't been seen. Judging by his reviews, I don't want to see him.

Absolutely NO bedside manner

I was a patient of Dr. Schaffert's for many years. I never found his office staff friendly or helpful, and he certainly was not friendly or helpful! He was offended when I asked for a referral to UCSF! What kind of doctor gets upset about that when he wasn't able to help me for several years!!!

These people don't care about their patients.

FAIL!!! Schaffert & staff couldn't have cared less about my well being. I dealt with these people for two years to diagnose an issue. Every time there was to be some new resolution, I would have to check back with them to monitor the process...every time they had no idea who I was, or what was supposed to be in process. They couldn't even be bothered to call with exam results, or recommend further diagnostics. Waist of time, money and dignity! FAIL!
