Los Angeles, CA |
I have been seeing Dr. Schim for about 2 years now. He has helped me immensely with my migraines. I travel a far distance to see him because he is so great!

I travel from Oregon every 3 months to see Dr Schim. I was having a hard time finding a Neurologist in Oregon that was willing & able to help treat my Chronic Migraines. I did some research on the internet & came across Dr Schim. I made an appointment & have been traveling to see Dr Schim for over a year. He is personable, knowledgeable & professional. It takes trust to allow someone to inject shots into your neck & head for treatment. I trust Dr Schim Completely & I Highly Recommend Dr. Schim

While Dr Schim is an amazing doctor, his office staff are terrible. I have been a patient for over a decade and am at my wit's end. His office staff are giving me migraines! I am starting to look for a new neurologist. It's too bad.

Experience was terrible. Rude, unprofessional in presentation and manner. Did not want to listen or take the time to explain. Would never go back to this office. Took many phone calls to schedule an appointment as the staff kept losing the paperwork.

Dr. Schim is the nicest guy, very serious and professional . He is the kind of doctor that really pays attention to what the patient is saying, He provides his insight and proposes a treatment carefully, then later is open to adjust the proposed treatment as needed..
in Wildomar, CA |
This wonderful man has changed my life. I have spent most of my life missing the important fun things life has to offer. Finally I got to meet this Dr who listens, understands & has been patient & extremely caring. He has given me my life back.
