    Excellent Doctor who provided me with excellent breast lift results – thoroughly satisfied with Dr Schaffner’s knowledge, through explanations regarding procedure including expectations, pre & post op care; results. Truly a great patient experience.

    Excellent results - truly a great patient experience
    Dr. Schaffner is absolutely fantastic. He removed large black moles from my face with virtually non existent scarring. He explained the whole process to me in detail and promptly addressed my questions and concerns. He has excellent bedside manners and even called me in the evening after surgery to make sure I was ok. I truly believe he is one of the best in his field.

    Dr. Schaffner did an excellent job with my breasts. I went in for breast augmentation and was so nervous but from the first day, I felt so comfortable and at peace. He knew exactly what I wanted and helped me out with what looked best for me. His whole team is GOLD and they treat you AMAZINGLY! I am so so so happy with my results and this was honestly a fun and amazing experience!
