How likely are you to recommend Dr. Schafer?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Schafer did my first knee replacement in 2016. It was marvelous. He recently did my second knee replacement. I have nothing but good to say about Dr. Schafer. He is professional, thorough, prompt and very informative about the procedure. My first one was so successful, I have every reason to believe that this last one will be as successful. I am two weeks out and my Physical Therapist is amazed at my progress. Highly recommend Dr. Brian Schafer.
