Dr. Schulgit has been my cardiologist for 13 years, and I have been much healthier overall thanks to his guidance. He is thoughtful, concerned, and never in a hurry when we meet to discuss my tests.

Dr. Schulgit has given me the care necessary for my cardiovascular decease and has treated me for a number of years. He always takes time to listen to any concerns and explains everything in a way that I understand. I have the utmost confidence in him and have trusted him with my life. The Ladies in the office are always friendly, they always do what they can to schedule me in a timely fashion.

20 years ago I had a Heart categorization he diagnosed 60% blockage. I recently had knee replacement and do to his diagnosis back then I needed another heart categorization before surgery on my knees. That categorization revealed no blockage, none. I guess that is why it is called Practicing Medicine. So for twenty some years I lived with the thought that I had blockage. Nope none. I wish I had those sleepless night of worry back.
