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.

This doctor is outstanding. When my prior doctor left because of health reasons. Dr Shaffer became my new Doctor,She is a knowledgeable and compassionate person. The medical profession should use her as a model. for all Docs to follow. She is that good.I hope she continues in the medical field.

I understand that she is leaving the Philipsburg Office and will only see patients in State College. I really wish she could continue to see patients in Philipsburg.

Dr. Schaefer is personable as well as professional. She saved my life by being the first to detect symptons of a later diagnosed condition.
