My experience with Dr. Schlotter and his staff was extremely positive. I had to have a large lipoma removed from my right breast. It was deep in the tissue so the surgery was conducted at the San Marcos Surgery Center (kudos to them as well..excellent facility). He was concise and thorough in his explanation of the procedure, has a very nice chill disposition, and made the process as easy as possible. His staff, Michelle and Sandy, are so kind and so professional. Highly recommend.

He was attentive at first but became critical of my other treatment and physician. He also acted condescending. I don't believe that he was thorough enough to make his final determination. He may have accolades from peers but his bed-side manner lacks.
