I was extremely pleased with my visit to Dr. Schulman. I came to see him as a new patient, and was very frightened about my condition, and had many questions. He thoroughly explained my condition and answered all my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Schulman to those seeking an excellent neurologist.

Dr. Schulman is a fantastic doctor! Anytime I've had concerns or have needed anything, he's contacted me back that same day. He's very detailed with the information he's giving me, and has great bedside manner. Although very blunt and to the point, I find that a great quality to have in a neurologist with a disease that's still very much of a mystery today. I wouldn't trade him for anybody else.

Dr. Schulman is wonderful. He was recommended by a friend of mine who was a doctor himself. I have been seeing Dr. Schulman close to 10 years. He has always been patient, understanding, kind and easy to communicate with. His office staff is stellar as well. Recently, I was in the new Henrico building and started a conversation with another lady and she said she takes her Mother to Dr. Schulman because he is the best and I agree.

My primary doctor referred me almost 2 years ago for RLS. Dr, Sculman has worked with me in establishing a med routine which will, to a degree, ameliorate the symptoms of this rather elusive condition which is not curable but maintainable. He listens well and does not rush things. l would give him an A +

Dr. Schulman erased all fears and concerns of being referred to see a neurologist with his extensive knowledge, pleasant disposition and his sincere concern for his patients shines through. He makes every 6 month visit feel personal when he remembers small things mentioned in prior visits to better gauge progress. I highly recommend Dr. Schulman and his supportive staff for any neurological issue or diagnosis!

Dr. Schulman is an excellent neurologist. He provides wonderful care when I go in for my appointments and suffering from migraines for over 30 years, I want a doctor who understands and cares about my pain. I recommend Dr. Schulman to anyone looking for a neurologist. He also provides Botox injections for migraine prevention.

I am pleased to be in Dr, Schulman's care for sleep apnea. He is knowledgeable, caring and has a very comfortable demeanor with his patients. Not only does he monitor my treatment periodically, but has in the past followed up when appropriate by phone.

I have been seeing Dr.Schulman for several years .He is always pleasant when coming in the room and asks how you are doing. He shows true concern about what it may be that he is treating you for. He always explains about the health problem you see him for and always does follow ups to make sure what he did is working. Very easy to talk to and very willing to answer questions. I would certainly recommend Dr. Schulman to friends or family.

Dr. Schulman has been taking care of my husband since he had a stroke 9 years ago. He is always on time, very patient, and very helpful with my husband's sleep apnea. His nurse and the staff in his office are always very pleasant as well.

I began with HCA Neurologist after a less than stellar 5 year experience with another practice.. I started with Dr. William Campbell and after seeing him and discussing my issues, I was immediately set up with Dr. Schulman as my condition fell under his specialty. While our visits are often brief, all of my concerns are addressed, he is always willing to answer questions/research effects of my other conditions, and the between visit use of the portal is helpful for quick questions or the like.
