Dr. Schuster's cavalier style and insensitivity to patient concerns diminishes the therapeutic process. He did not fully disclose or explain what he was doing, and passed off questions and concerns as irrelevant. The appointment was a waste of time, and I feel his alternative procedure--again, that he did not explain or disclose--actually caused more problems. His style is outdated and, quite frankly, offending, in addition to a barrier in addressing medical issues.

I have been Dr. Schuster's patient from last 2-3 years. Every time I visit him, he impresses me with his personal and professional attention to my ailment and concerns. He treats me with respect and he listens to my concerns and explains every step that is necessary to make me feel better. Before I leave his office, he ensures that I understand all aspects of his treatment plan. My comfort is his priority.
