Find a better doctor

May be a great surgeon, but after surgery he will not help you. He will not answer your questions. He will not tolerate the patient at all. Berated for my weight in exam room with door open in front of staff, my family and his entire waiting room.

Five Stars

Dr Schaefer has performed 2 surgeries on my knees. I would recommend him in a heart beat. My career relies on my ability to remain active and mobile and his work was outstanding. Not only where his bed side manners excellent, but he showed a genuine desire to help me.

Find a different doctor

Doctor needs to find a way not to work with people. Must have failed the compassion and caring part of school. Not a good choice.

Bad choice

He may be a good surgeon but terrible doctor. Treated myself and my family member very abusively. I regretted my choice of him as my doctor. Did not listen nor care what I had to say.
