Dr. Shukhart is the best at what he does he is compassionate and understanding and does his job with empathy

Dr. Schuchert is unfailingly kind, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. He does not talk down or sugar-coat the diagnosis, but delivers it with compassion. My surgery went smoothly from my point of view and recovery has been fast and with less pain than I remember from past thoracic surgeries.

It was so refreshing to have a doctor actually listen and offer suggestions. After a stay in Presby, I swore I would never go there again...however, Dr. Schuchert changed my mind. He is wonderful!

Care provider does a great job!!!

Dr. Schuchert is the best. He operated on my lung August, 2015. My visit with him on April 18 was only for a follow up CT scan. After the scan, he gave me the results. He is an excellent surgeon - very professional and knowledgeable. He has a very comfortable way of dealing with his patients. I feel very at ease when he explains things. Very blessed to have found such a great doctor.
