Kristina believes in providing up-to-date, evidence-based medicine tailored to meet each patient’s specific-needs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 -

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

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!
