This doctor is one of the most caring, knowledgeable doctors that I have ever experienced!

Dr. Schuchert is a excellent doctor and a very nice person with a wonderful "bedside manner." He was my surgeon in August, 2015 for lung surgery. My recent visit was for a follow up with regard to that surgery. I have to have CT scans every six months. So glad to have had Dr. Schuchert as my surgeon. I receive the results the same day as I have the scan.

Dr. Schuchert has been my surgeon for 9 months now. From the first week in Jan 2018 to the last week of September 2018. I have had numerous operations in and out of the hospital many times. Although Dr. Schuchert waiting time for his check up visits was extremely long. I would get frustrated. However I did understand the volume of work he does and the expertise needed to do his job as well as he does. He helped me be stronger than the storm through all this. Dr. Schuchert is the calm before, during and after the storm. My case was complicated. I am very lucky to have had Dr. Schuchert and Dr. Stoffman taking care of me.

This is possibly the most comfortable I have ever been in a doctor's office. From the minute he introduced himself I knew it was going to be a good experience. He took the time to explain things in great detail which was exactly what I needed. It chased away many of the fears that my incorrect thinking had placed in my head. It is obvious he really cares about his patients and how they feel.
