Showed the Xray. Then focused on how the problem was going to be remediated. Gentle when administering the shot.

Felt rushed, didn’t want to hear everything that was going on. Said he was changing my meds but someone would come in to discuss everything and nurse just came in to show me out. Kept asking me what treatments I had and test when he could’ve pulled up in computer.

I had been searching for a Dr. for nearly a year I had seen two Drs. With no postive results. I didnt know what to expect doing my first visits with Dr. Schertzinger. But after looking at my xrays and talking with me. He came up with a plan to eliminate the pain and suffering I was having in my left shoulder. I believe in Dr. Schertzinger and trust in his experience.

C. Briggs – Jun 11, 2021
So happy with Dr. Schertzinger and the care I'm receiving so far for a bulging disc in my back. Once I made the decision to seek help, I was thrilled with how quickly everything moved, from initial appointment to MRI, blood work, bone scan, and then full and detailed follow-up appointment with Dr. Schertzinger. Very happy with the plan of attack we've put together to get me to pain free.

Waited an hour in the exam room just to be dismissed by the doctor. He acts like he’d literally rather be anywhere else and has horrible bedside manners. I’ll go get a second opinion from someone that knows what they’re doing

He was the only Dr out of three that is interested in treating/fixing getting to the core of what's causing my pain, not just wanting to inject me with something. I have seen the curvature in my lower back and none of the other Drs never explained it to me, when I asked they said said it's no big deal. One Dr wanted to start injections and I was scared to death. Then this other Dr said in so many words, then the pain must not be that bad then None of the others had any bed side manners.

I love Dr. Schertzinger! He was so determined to find what was going on with them, he did multiple MRIs to get to the bottom of it. When he discovered I had a partial empty cella in my brain he then referred me to see a Neurologist and I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Intracrainal Hypertension. When I went back to tell him he was more excited than me that we found the cause of my pain. And he was still willing to see me for my back pain. I would always recommend him to anyone with spine pain!
