About 1 ½ years ago, I was diagnosed with arthritis in both knees.  The left knee has gotten progressively worse. The orthopedic doctor gave me a shot, which helped very little.  I was telling Dr. Schafer and she asked me if I would like to try laser treatments and I said sure! I have now had 8 treatments and the pain is so much less now.  Hope this continues!


I started coming to Dr. Schafer in May of 2013 for my spurs on my heels after seeing another podiatrist who did absolutely nothing for me.  Dr. Schafer suggested laser treatments 2-3 times per week as I had such horrible burning pain.  I stopped coming in August 2013 and was fine until March 2014 when they started to act up again. Back to the laser treatments, I am feeling good. Or should I say my spurs are feeling much better.

Thank you Dr. Schafer!


Starting April 22 twice a week for five weeks-laser treatments 80 % of my pain on one foot and 100% on other foot is gone. I also think the orthotics are helping along with the laser treatments.


I started coming to Dr. Schafer for laser treatments May 28, 2014 my feet would hurt so bad at times I would be at home crying.  Since I’ve started the treatments I feel much, much better. I can truly say I feel about 80-85% better. I would suggest these treatments to anyone with diabetic neuropathy.

Thank You Dr. and Staff


I started the laser in December 2014. My feet burned constantly and I have heel spurs on both feet. The laser treatments helped greatly. The burning is gone and the heel spurs are much better.


I can’t get over how good my feet feel. I can walk without pain. My tech, Dena, is the best.  She really got the areas that really was painful.  I feel about 95% better. I thought it might come to surgery but the laser has really worked!

I had pain in my knee. I tried every treatment there was out there. I finally tried the laser, and after 10 treatments my knee improved 95%!

I had a tear on my left ankle for about a year after using the laser for 10 treatments it is almost like new.


P.S. Dena was very patient and did a great job for me.


I started the laser treatment on February 5, 2015 and it’s the best thing that I could have done. I have neuropathy in both feet and the pain at night would keep me up. Now I would say that 80% of my pain is gone. At first I really didn’t see any difference and one day, it was gone…I was really surprised!! Dr. Schafer, Dena and  Jill are really great! I even have my husband coming and he just loves them.  Just remember it may not seem like anything is helping and then WOW it really works!  I tell everyone about Dr. Schafer!!!
