Ratings for Dr. Martin Schaeffer
Do NOT go to Dr.Martin Schaeffer if you are in any pain. Before I saw the doctor, I filled out a questionnaire and one question was rank the level of your pain from 0 (least pain) to 10 (most pain). I gave it a 3 (mild discomfort). I had to wait for 1 hour and 40 minutes before seeing the doctor and by the time I saw him I was in excruciating pain from my sciatica from sitting and standing all that time. My BP had gone to levels I had NEVER experienced. Obviously Dr Schaeffer overbooks to extreme levels and is MUCH more interested in hauling in the $$$$$ than ANY concern he has for his patients and pain management. You might say he managed to put me in extreme pain which seems to be his philosophy of pain management. After leaving his office I was in pain for the rest of the day and that night. I repeat: do NOT see DR Martin Schaeffer if you are in any pain.
The staff were very friendly and courteous. Dr. Schaeffer was no nonsense, and took my pain and symptoms very seriously. After a few visits I started receiving injections, and after a few adjustments to the plan I am experiencing the least amount of pain I have in ten years.
Took a few visits, however by the third visit I had an injection scheduled. I have always been afraid of needles, however Dr. Schaeffer and I agreed that an injection was my best option. I was very nervous before the procedure however the staff were very kind and understanding. After the procedure I was numb for a few hours but after I felt great. I am now scheduled to receive injections avery few months, and am almost pain free.
After being the fourth physician I had seen for my pain I was highly skeptical about Dr. Schaeffer. After the first couple visits we had a treatment plan in place, and after a few minor adjustments my pain is manageable for the first time in years. Highly recommend.
