Dr. Schuchert always carefully explains any issues.

Dr. Schuchert is the best doctor. I am really glad he was my surgeon in August, 2015 and is continuing with my follow up. Every six months he schedules a CT scan and I get the results the same day. He makes me feel very comfortable and I trust him very much. He takes plenty of time in the office visit and you can tell he cares about his patients. A very nice man.

Dr. Schuchert is one of the most caring and knowledgeable physicians we have ever been too. He has provided us with care and assistance that has greatly improved my wife's quality of life.
