While on vacation my much-needed glasses broke. I needed a replacement almost immediately as I'm pretty much blind without my glasses. Since Dr. Schaeffer had examined me about a month ago I called his office Monday morning requesting to be seen right away to get my prescription. After having stressed the urgency of my situation I was told they could possibly see me in a week but if I left a message with a technical person maybe she could see me sooner which I did. She did not return my call until Wednesday. I went to Walmart on Monday morning and by Wednesday afternoon my glasses were ready. I chose new designer frames and they were able to extract a prescription from my existing lenses. I will not be returning to Dr. Schaeffer's office in the future.
