Kristina believes in providing up-to-date, evidence-based medicine tailored to meet each patient’s specific-needs. Her philosophy is that healthcare should be a partnership between the patient and the provider, and that each patient should be treated as a whole individual with their own values, goals, and aspirations to reach their highest quality of life. Her goal is to assist the patient to make educated and informed decisions, so that they can take an active and engaged role in their health. She enjoys taking care of minor injuries, as well as chronic conditions, and treating all ages. She is a member of the Honor Society of Nursing-Sigma Theta Tau International and The American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Kristina is the proud mother of a son and daughter, and enjoys spending time with her kids, gardening, reading, and playing with her dog.

Im very happy with Kristina.She shows genuine care and compassion. I will continue seeing her
Always thorough. Reviews medical records, follows up as planned, makes recovery for each concern.
Always listens, checks me or my concerns, leave feeling safe
No bad experiences
Kristina listened to my concerns, asked appropriate questions, was caring, confidently diagnosed the issue, worked with me to create a care plan.
Very personable provider. I like that she doesnt talk over me or talk at me, but partners with me.
Kristina is one of 4 physician in my lifetime that is considered really thorough & completely open & honest. Because she is thorough & takes time to go over complete medical history & remembers me.
We discussed possible lung scans and j declined. My choice my body! She cut my toenails because I am too fat to reach toes. She always listens and advises. I really respect that she respects my decisions.
Very pleased with the care I'm getting from Kristina Schaefer, she listens, is very thorough, I feel heard and never rushed.
Love Kristina she is so knowledgeable, kind and caring
She was ver attentive and addressed all concerns and questions.
It was very good. Everyone I know has there own doctor, so I don't recommend.
The best doctor I have ever had
I was nervous when I first got there but after I went in exam room and nurse took my blood pressure and we talked I felt much better.
Going to the doctor is a pleasant experience.
She is always very communicative and helpful.
My provider is easy to access for appointments and via text message system. I appreciate that she take time during my appointment and do not feel rushed.
Everyone I talked to was kind and professional and efficient
Kristina Schaefer really listens and provides good feedback and suggestions
Dr Kristina was really kind and supportive. Especially when I told her I'm looking to start exercising to lose some weight. She was supportive and kind and gentle about it, which I really appreciated because weight loss, my body shape, and food are all sometimes really hard topics for me to talk about. I really enjoyed her and appreciated her kindness. I also appreciated her being gentle when I shared my struggles with anxiety and how I just can't cope with it by myself anymore. She made me feel good and secure about starting a new prescription, not like a crazy person or a loser wacko for having to be on meds. I really felt like she took care of me.
Very great experience
Kristina is very attentive. She really listens to her patients. I always feel like she cares about my health!
Didn't receive call with lab results.
The Doctor was kind, thoughtful, and took time to get to know me and my concerns. I felt very comfortable and happy.
I am comfortable talking with Kristina about all my health issues and she listens , explains and recommends or refers when necessary. I never feel she is rushing me out the door which is something rare and I appreciate.
Provider is a good listener & very conscientious.
This was the first y to one I saw Dr. Kristina. I am so happy to now be a patient of hers. She was friendly, reviewed all my records to get to know me and asked me questions to further her understanding. She us the perfect Dr. For me and am so grateful.
Kristina Schaefer was very thorough.
Gave a document informing me of treatment for my issues last visit I had
This was my first visit with this provider, as my regular provider had left this facility. I was impressed with this new provider and will continue to see her.
Kristina is amazing! She is very thorough and really listens and responds to concerns. I feel as if she really works hard to know what is happening with her clients and develops a good rapport with them.
She was very comfortable to be with and to talk to.
Kristina is always very thorough and helpful.
My only hesitation in recommending legacy, not the actual provider, has to do with its, in my view , over attention to prescriptions-28 day limits when other providers will allow 3 months at a time & require "contracts" for some medications. That, combined with drug screenings, etc can make one feel a bit overseen. It's a bit much for those of us who have lived this long, have endured much & take responsibility for our actions. I'm not comfortable with these policies & may switch companies for this reason.
Kristina is always very pleasant, communicative, and professional.
My provider was well informed about my health needs and was very professional and friendly
Was very good
She is a new doctor to me and I liked her. She seemed good and we will continue to have her as our doctor
I am very happy with AP Schaefer. She listens and advises. Plus she laughs at my jokes.
Kristina is very good at explaining everything
I have known many medical professionals. Kristina is up there with the very best. She understands my medical conditions which unfortunately are rather numerous and we discuss all options etc. In addition to her being very helpful, she really cares which to me is very important.
My first visit with her. She will be my new primary care provider. She went over my record very carefully. Made me feel comfortable with new person.
Kristina Schaefer is kind and thorough. I am a health care provider myself, and she provides everything I look for in a provider!
My provider addresses all my concerns in a very respectful manner which I greatly appreciate.
We've been to this clinic 3 times and the providers never washed or sanitized their hands....I won't be back.
Appreciate practitioner as well as assistant and phlebotomist.
Being that she is a new provider, I liked her. Will return when needed.
Got some input on childcare/ education for grandkids
Ms. Schaefer ARNP always listens to my concerns and meets me where I am at physically and emotionally. She is a joy to talk to and I always enjoy my visits.
Kristina S. And her nurse assistant were very good, thorough, and efficient in taking care of me. I am glad I chose Legacy when I moved here.
Kristina went over my history, listened to my concerns and formulated a plan. She is thorough, informative, professional and friendly.
There was a delay because of an emergency with another patient. It was explained to me and I was updated periodically, so it was not a problem.
First time meeting this provider and it was great!
Quick, friendly and informative.
It seems that Kristina is very focused on her laptop so it takes away from personal attention but she is helpful and I understand my overall health -
Kristina does a great job My appointment was very comfortable.
No bad, very good
For the first time in a very long time I felt like I had a provider that listened to me and didn't seem like they were in a hurry or distracted. This was an awesome experience!
The only bad was getting blood draw. She missed all 4 tries. It cause me to feel like I was going to pass out. I had to lay down and wait for my blood pressure to go back up. I have to go back to have it done.
Provider was unusually thorough, unlike prior visits. She spent a long time discussing all meds and health issues, which was a welcome change from prior visits that felt like fat food drive through
Took the time to be thorough.
First time visit. She is now my new primary provider.
Kristina is great. I have referred multiple friends to her.
Past health records were review. Prescriptions ordered, vaccine booster given. Encouraged 2nd shingles shot.Very thorough, much better than previous doctor in Peace Health.
I've been coming to this site for over 15 years.
Dr. Schaefer was the best provider I have ever seen! She makes me feel so comfortable, listened too and always solves my concerns! I always leave her office feeling so much happier and calm no matter what I'm facing at the moment. She always took my concerns seriously when past health professionals have not. Shes the reason I'm in good condition today. I cannot thank her enough for all her care, time and attention to detail she has taken with me!
I had Kristina as a doctor for several years.. She very thorough she stepped out of her practice and when I found her again I was so very thankful that my Ins etc workedI hadn't had anyone even close to her professionalism.I referred her to a good friend and now they're a patient
She has been very Patient and kind and thorough
Nurse and doctor excellent. Needed appt same day and on road to recovery
I have never met so many wonderful and caring people all in one office! Staff and doctors were a delight!
Kristina has a wonderful bedside manner and is always willing to discuss my concerns with respect and interest. She's always ready to look further into a subject. I'm very happy with her as my primary.
All good. Anyone would be very fortunate to have Kristina as his or her primary care proviider. I feel very fortunate to have found her!!! .
Kristina is always very thorough and helpful.
