Dr. Michael W Schaeffer has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Only saw this Doctor in Hospital ER

As a patient with 2 prior heart attacks I had chest pains and went to Hospital ER like I was told to do. After the ER did some test I had to wait for almost 5 hours with no explaination why the long wait, this doctor finally came in my room to see me. He told me my heart was ok and there were no problems. I ask what was causing the pain and was told to go home and take 2 tynol and he did no farther test after that to try to help me. I thought this was very unprofessional and left the hospital very upset and went to see another doctor.
