Worse after surgery than before

Dr. Schaffer made my wrist worse after surgery than it was before. He entirely missed a tear in a key ligament and performed a procedure I did not consent to, which I had to have fixed by another surgeon. After I had all kinds of issues after the first surgery he shrugged and said he could go in again and look around. No way.

mrs.

I am writing to say that Bradley Schaffer med ortho is the best doctor I have ever had. I have been with him for 4 years. when he went into private practice, I followed him with tough risks from my medical insurance company. I was given a very tough time by them. but, I stayed no matter what. I feel dr. schaffer wat the best one to continue with my hands for I was so comfortable with him. besides, I am eclectic and eccentric and so very different from other women and he understands me so well. he "gets" me and my feelings. he also helped me with medical insurance when my medical insurance refused me all coverage because I stayed with him. he is compassionate, understanding, funny, easy going, easy going, and listens to all my concerns. I think he is the "hoot". a southern expression. we get along so well... I will not leave him unless he dies or I die.. where he goes I will follow. I can not explain exactly how I feel about this doctor. he makes it appoint to understand me and to find out what is wrong with my hands. and most important, he LISTENS. this doctor is my hero... I will never leave him as a patient. the best doctor I have ever had in my life.

Broken Elbow

I fell and broke my elbow and was referred to Dr. Schaffer. He diagnosed a radial head fracture, which was broken into 3 pieces and not a clean break. He recommended an implant to repair it. I found him to be professional and very knowledgeable, and able to explain my diagnosis in terms I could understand. He's also very personable and easy to talk to. The results of my surgery were excellent and my scar looks better than I could have hoped for. I would recommend Dr. Schaffer to anyone having hand or elbow problems. I think he's great!
