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.
