Ratings & Reviews
How was your appointment with Dr. Schaefer?
Dr.Schaefer is very thorough and considerate. He can relate very much to my problems and questions. It is not easy to work with all the different insurances but he tries very hard to communicate with all of them. We both are Type1 diabetics. I, now, have to have him send out 3 different scripts to 2 different mail order pharmacies and Walgreens. Now,because OneTouch ultra test strips cannot be mailed to me,he introduced me to the freestyle..another different script. I only wished that the people working in the reception office were more organized and efficient to make things easier for the doctors as well as for the patients who need things faxed back to the providers whom they have been forced to change because of their own insurances. When you call the office, make sure you ask who you are talking to so if you lose them, you can refer back to them.
