This man destroyed my career and education by failing to inform me that agreement with his regime would result in being discriminated against thus losing my jobs at two leading hospitals and causing my precious spouse and daughter to suffer financially. Frankly he doesn't care and directed me to file for medical disability. I never pursued a lawsuit because I hoped his integrity would compensate my family.

Takes very good care of me. I have chronic pain. Other than the scars, you can't tell. Dr Schade and his staff and very thorough. You need a referral. There are checks on you and random drug tests. This is not a pill mill in any fashion. You will not get medication from him unless it is medically necessary. Dr. T is cute too!
