We are happy to welcome Dr. Stephanie Schaefer, MD to our practice. Stephanie L. Schaefer, MD thoroughly enjoys practicing both obstetrics and gynecology. From adolescence through menopause and beyond, she is dedicated to helping women achieve their fullest potential, including helping women to fulfill their ideal vision of family through obstetrical care, fertility needs, and family planning.
Patients like that she is approachable, thorough, and listens to their needs without judgement or feeling rushed. Whether it be during a routine exam or more urgent issue, Dr. Schaefer creates a safe environment to ensure patients feel at ease and encouraged to share all concerns they may have.
"I still recall the anxiety I felt at my first well woman exam", she says, “It is one of the most vulnerable moments in our lives as women. With that in mind, I welcome the opportunity to meet with an adolescent for her very first exam. My goal is to diminish any worries she may have about visiting the gynecologist and establish a trusted partnership to work towards becoming the healthiest version of herself. I seek to serve women throughout all the seasons of their life."
Dr. Schaefer is a graduate of UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, TX, which is ranked as one of the nation’s top medical schools. After graduating, she desired to both be close to family and have superb training so she moved home to San Antonio to complete her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at UT Health.
Dr. Schaefer is skilled in numerous surgical procedures to meet her patients' needs, including certification in minimally invasive techniques such as the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System to decrease pain and speed recovery time.
As a San Antonio native, Dr. Schaefer's roots run deep. For three generations, the family business was running local barbeque joints before she decided to make delivering babies the new "family business”. When not working or on call, Dr. Schaefer loves to spend time with her amazing husband Kerry, two adorable kiddos, and two shaggy doodle-dogs.
