Excellent

Dr. Schaffner is a highly trained, excellent Primary Care Physician. Her examinations are thorough and complete. She is an excellent communicator and will not finish her visit with you until all of your questions are answered and she is assured you understand what she has told you. She does NOT prescribe unnecessary tests. She effectively saved my life by scheduling me for a nuclear stress test which uncovered a serious blockage in my heart. She willingly coordinates my treatment by specialists other than herself.
