Dr. Shuster is a good doctor. However, after two years of dealing with his imcompetent office staff, I am leaving his service. They mishandle insurance information, they lose personal documents, they make you wait months for an appointment, but worst of all they provide no assistance on those rare occasions when a problem arises between visits. Or they say they will do something, then do nothing. I have spoken twice with Dr. Shuster regarding the staff performance. Apparently he has no control over their actions. The service is not providing wholistic, comprehensive medical care. With the high cost of health care, patients deserve at least that much.

I have had a variety of challenges [CP, Arthritis, extensive Scoliosis car accident & nerve damage],causing me complex, excruciating pain. Dr. Schuster caringly, compassionately used various approaches to all of them until my pain went from unbearable to improved! Dr. Schuster has remained my pain management doctor for over seven years. He is a great man. Skilled with a kind sense of humor when that’s appropriate. I can’t say enough about how much of a difference he’s made for me!

Came in for a follow up visit, saw the PA. Billed my insurance co $170.00, Then the hospital billed $170.00 for the room. I called the hospital billing dept. I was told that the hospital always charges for the room charge for pain management patients. I asked even for a follow up when you are not seeing the Dr. Yes always. I told them we will be changing pain management Drs. Lee Memorial is not the only game in town.

My experience with Dr Shuster was excellent. He was very busy but took the time with me to explain things and answer all of my questions. He did my injection in my back and I felt very little if any discomfort. I recommend Dr Shuster for management of chronic pain.

I requested non addictive pain meds but he insisted the narcotics work.. I'd complain they made me not care & Shuster got angry at me. I couldn't lay immobile while he injected a needle down into my spine, it was terrifying & I didn't want it..I complained again that the fear I felt wasn't worth the results & I didn't want anymore done.. He started filling my chart with strange notes about my mental state as if he was preparing for a complaint I might file against him.. Terrible Dr & person

i like Dr. Shuster for the fact that he listens, is knowlegeable about my conditions. His ARNP Cindy is just as knowledgeable and she too listens. I really like their bedside manor as they both are cordial and do not down talk to me. I highly recommend Dr. Shuster and Cindy.
