Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schumer "As a subspecialist my expertise is in healing your upper extremity problem. However I can never forget that there is more to you than just your hand or wrist. It is an easy trap that subspeciality doctors fall into all the time. As your doctor I have to slow down and listen carefully to you. I need to learn about your life and how your hand or wrist problem affects you. Then together we can work towards the best possible solution for you."

I had carpel tunnel release in both my hands with Dr. Schumer and both operations went exactly as he said they would. I have had no issues since the surgery and would definitely recommend Dr. Schumer. He has a great bed side manner, is very knowledgeable and explains everything in clear concise...more
