Dr. Shuster appears to be a good clinician, however she goes overboard, abd her bedside manners are not so great; not a good listener! she wants to go where she chooses with the conversations, interrupted us too many times, and at the end I was ready to walk out.

I agree with my fellow one star rater. Her staff are horrible, just horrible. They're short tempered, rude, condescending. While Schuster herself is a zealot with her approach to allergies. Stopped going after 3 months of dealing with the nonsense from her staff. Do not recommend. They need a real customer focused cultural shift over there.

She may know her stuff. But she has the worst interpersonal skills of any medical professional I’ve ever dealt with. Saw her with both of my kids and dreaded having to go back for a follow up. And the snipping, condescending and unwelcoming staff doesn’t help the situation. Even the physical office itself is tired - tired of dealing with her perhaps?

My infant had bad eczema. We had worked with the pediatrician for some time with no relief. After seeing Dr. Schuster my baby's eczema is completely gone.
