    Dr. Schottenstein and his office are the best! I've been seeing him for years and the office is extremely efficient and helpful. He's open even during the holidays on christmas eve and new years eve and his office is very accomodating when you're in a bind or throw your back out. Thanks Dr. S!

    Dr. Schottenstein has to be one of the worse Drs I have ever been to. He shows no concern for his patient at all. I'm completely convinced all his good reviews were put up by his friends. He's a horrible dr.

    Dr. Schottenstein is extremely knowledgeable and detail-oriented. He will take the time to thoroughly discuss your condition and assess all possible options. I have never felt more comfortable knowing I am in good hands than with Dr. S. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know.

    I was a patient of the doctor in his former office and I am so glad I decided to follow him. His office is very efficient and the doctor is professional, thorough and makes you feel at ease with a wonderful bedside manner. He explains everything to you and does not force or push you into anything. In addition, he gives you his personal email in the event of a crisis. I don't know anyone else who does this.
