There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Tom Schaeffer was exceptional in dealing with my mother during her recent appointment. He addressed the concerns that I sent him prior to the visit. Since last week and a change in medication at his recommendation, I have seen an improvement in my mother! He is a true professional!

I have had this care provider several times in the past and requested him for this visit . I have also recommended him to 2 of my friends . I find this care provider to be very helpful with explaining what meds you may need and why you need them . He displays compassion for his patients and shows a genuine concern .
