    How was your appointment with Dr. Schafer?

    Nov 24, 2022
    Dr. Andrew Schafer is my hematologist who was recommended by my PCP (now retired) due to Cold Agglutinin Disease. I have the highest respect for Dr. Schafer; he is professional organized, sincerely interested, caring and highly detailed. He is very patient, taking his time to ask so many questions that uncover my health information that I would not think to share. Dr. Schafer finds potential health issues that are important to address that I did not even know exist. He is open minded to natural remedies which makes me happy. He still looks like Santa Claus to me. I feel secure, thankful and lucky to have Dr. Schafer care for me and do not hesitate to give him and his staff my highest recommendation!!!
