What Do Patients Say About Dr. Schaffer?

"I had been agonizing over my decision to have a breast augmentation done for over 10 years, I had two children and my small breasts had become droopy with very little breast tissue. So I was excited to meet a girlfriend this year that had her augmentation done by Dr. Schaffer 10 years ago and she raved of her results. She explained how Doctor Schaffer has her come in for annual visits to insure she is healthy and her breasts look as good as when she first had the surgery. I knew in an instant that Dr. Schaffer was the right fit for me. I researched Dr. Schaffer on the internet and then made my consultation appointment. My husband was impressed on Dr. Schaffer's knowledge and his attention to detail. We knew in an instant that Dr. Schaffer would not accept anything but perfection from his work, so we also had him fix my 2 umbilical hernias. On the day of the surgery I was comforted to know he handpicked his anesthesiologist and verified my decision on my implant size. The recovery was a snap. I had little to no pain; I was able to get back to work in a couple of days. It's been over 2 months since my surgery and I cannot be happier with my results! I hold Dr. Schaffer in the highest regards." —Theresa Matowitz, Business Analyst/Programmer
