Patient Comments (8)
in Abc, NJ |
Told me nothing was wrong with my back and when i told him the pain was unbearable he said i could see pain management if i wanted. I did not go with the pain management doctor in the practice. The new doctor told me i have 5 herniated discs and since i had previous surgery and a complicated back, Schoeb probably did not want to do the surgery. Not really impressed. He did something similar to my friend with 4 herniated discs.

I was introduced to Dr Schoeb via Dr Gerstman. I was suffering from a severe herniated disc episode; intolerable pain/discomfort. Injection (via Dr Gertstman) did not alleviate pain/discomfort. My first apptment with Dr Schoeb was on a Monday morning and on my request, he scheduled surgery (Microdiscectomy) later that day. Surgery was successful, with pain/discomfort alleviated immediately. I am very appreciative of the efforts of Dr Schoeb and would highly recommend him to others.

I had an appointment for a degenerative L-5. He looked at my MRI and then told me to lose weight and join the Y. I am in major pain and was expecting a plan of treatment. He then showed me how to do a plank. He said if you want an epidural or surgery I could do that too. Full of himself, cold, Ivy League degree which doesn't impress me. My daughter attends an Ivy League college. It's clear he isn't qualified to be a doctor. Do not go to him ever.

No bedside manner. No compassion for patients. Very abrupt. One of the worst physicians we have ever experienced.

Dr. Schoeb is a wonderful doctor. Four years ago, I herniated a disc in the L4/L5 region of my back, but about a month ago, it ruptured. With the severe pain I was in, I was in need of urgent and immediate care. I saw Dr. Schoeb on a Thursday morning, and he scheduled a microdiscectomy for that afternoon. His willingness to perform surgery with such short notice is something that I will never forget. I highly recommend him as a doctor.

Most ignorant doctor I ever met
in WM NJ |
DR Schoeb, Along with his team did an excellent job on repairing my lower back, the surgery was on time and went as expected, His staff is very helpful, When you arrive at there office for your appointment , you actually are seen within 20 min or less of your scheduled appointment, I think that's huge in itself, I'm grateful for having my mobility back and PAIN GONE, If you have a unfortunate situation with your back I would recommend DR Schoeb, great at what he does...

Dr Schoeb treated me and my wife with respect, examined our test data and images carefully with us present, explained his medical recommendations clearly, and answered all our questions clearly and insured that we understood. He quickly gave us confidence in his recommendations and took the most conservative approach. The procedure he performed went as he described and I am very satisfied. I highly recommend him to patients needing help with a spine problem.
