It was very short, and the diagnosis was wrong. I was referred for tendonitis, and his treatment was ineffectual. I have since been diagnosed with cervical issues. I would not go back to this doctor.

Although his bedside manner is not great I really liked him. I felt confident in him doing my total knee replacement. I kept having pain and he would tell me to do more therapy or maybe I'm a slow healer??? It will be 3 years in April and my knee still swells and the pain is no better. It has truly impacted my quality of life! I have several neighbors who have had the same surgery by other surgeons and they are doing great. I greatly regret having the surgery, it has made my life miserable

Dr Schaberg put both of my brother’s knees back together and described them, before the surgery as so broken that they were literally like a jigsaw puzzle. But he did an extremely well job putting those jigsaws back together. I would love to use his services now to repair my knee but sadly, he is not a provider of my insurance. He spent so much time at the hospital explaining everything and answering all of our questions that I was amazed, since he was such a busy doctor. He’s a great Dr!

Dr. Schaberg did surgery on me for a torn rotor cuff on my right shoulder. He was professional and his skill as a orthopedic surgeon is excellent. He did a previous surgery on my left shoulder 5 years ago, and have been able to play sports with no problems. This right shoulder was from wear and tear and I after 3 months am 100% pain free. I will be back to playing sports again thanks to Dr. Schaberg. I am 66 years .

He was great with my 91 year old mother. He made her knee better without surgery. We got an appointment as soon as we called.

RH carpal tunnel initial visit. Doctor was unpleasant and maybe spent 5 minutes with me. Very awkward visit and to say he is the most non-compassionate doctor I've had the displeasure to meet is an understatment. I appreciate the $300 bill for the 5 minutes of time you gave me.

He rushes through appointments and his scheduling staff overbooks him. They do not respect their patients time. You can find a better doctor.

Dr. Schaberg did not hurry, answered my questions, and outlined what our next steps should be. Was apprehensive about seeing an orthopedist for the first time, but felt reassured about my prognosis after the appointment.

Waited over 1.5 hours. He was in the room less than 5 minutes. Didn't talk about the MRI or x-ray or offer what might be wrong with my limb. He wanted to give me a cortisone shot, when I was hesitant, he walked out.
