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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shulman since early January 2017.. My most recent visit was October 6, 2017. He has been working with me on a fairly common condition found in older adults. He was referred to me by my wonderful family physician, Dr. Gergoudis. feeling Dr . Shulman had more expertise in dealing with it.. Dr. Shulman has being working with me in finding the best medicine and dosage for my condition. l am doing well & grateful for his care & understanding. He is THE BEST.!

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.
in Chester, VA |
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.
in Chesterfield,VA |
Dr. Schulman has treated my narcolepsy for several years now after diagnosing it in his sleep lab, and at each visit he is thorough, professional, personable, and has always exceeded my expectations from a specialist doctor. He truly cares about his patients health and general wellbeing and will peruse any and all appropriate avenues to improve their condition in life.
