Dr. Schulman treated both my daughters and myself for different gastrointestinal issues. He is extremely skilled and most importantly, is extraordinarily compassionate in rendering his diagnosis of a life threatening condition. He is a truly special physician and caring human being.

A lot of free parking space there, Dr. Schulman is one of the greatest GI doctors I've had in my life. He is very patient, helpful. He followed up our test results and updated the test reports in the portal system in a timely manner.

Dr. Schulman is awesome! He is kind of a doctor that takes time to explain everything to you, look into your eyes when talking with you, extremely knowledgeable, very supportive and caring. His level of knowledge and skill level are outstanding, and that combines with his many years of experience plus his caring heart are attributes that are hard to find. I'm blessed to have him taking care of me!

Dr. Schulman is currently treating me. He's extremely knowledgeable and thinks out side the box. He is diligently trying to help me with different treatment plans, very methodically, one plan at a time. He brings confidence in me. Currently he's my best friend, and probably one of the best doctors I've come across

Dr Shulman is the best doctor I ever had. I am 46 yrs old and have been a patient of his for 30 yrs. He has always been compassionate and empathetic towards my illness. He has kept me in remission for DECADES. If only we had more mentors like him in the health industry. He is very intelligent but never makes you feel he is above any personal issue. If you ever need gastrointerolygist you would be lucky to have him on your team. With the utmost respect CAMILLE POLICANO BABBIS.
