No bedside manner, I always try to get the earliest appointments I can so that I can sleep through it since I always go to him by ambulance anyway

Dr. Schuchmann appears to be a good doctor. The day I was there he examined me and I believe he knows what he was talking about. He also was training interns at the time. His nurse was supposed to schedule test but she convinced me that I should not schedule it. Now I have to start the whole process over because of her not wanting to do what he told her to do and what I needed done. Watch out for his staff they are inept.

I saw the doc when I had a wound that needed treatment. He did a debridment surgery and then never did another culture or scan the entire two months following to make sure I had no more infection. Being a diabetic this is detrimental to make sure the infection is gone. After several attempts asking him to check it he wouldn't said it was fine and a week after the last time I asked him if he would culture to make sure there was no infection and him refusing I had to have an amputation.
