Dr. Schaffer is very nice and attentive. I've had many doctors, and she is one of the most caring ones I've had. I feel heard and respected while there. A big thing that I really appreciate is that she acknowledges that mental health is as important as physical health, and will check to see how you are feeling in that regard, too. She's thoughtful and makes me feel less nervous and uncomfortable, which is exactly what I would hope for in a healthcare provider.
