As a certified senior -- I'm 71 -- I can vouch for two things: If you live as long as me, you'll eventually develop stiffening of the joints, aka osteoarthritis. The other good thing is that while our ancestors suffered in silence, those lucky enough to be in the care of Dr. Schilling will receive a thorough diagnosis and, if called for (as in my case), the injection of a steroid that, for several months, eliminates the pain. Having visited Dr. Schilling on three occasions, I can attest that he gives the patient his utmost attention. After he makes a diagnosis, he then applies effective treatment. He is thoroughly professional while at the same time having the bedside manner of small-town doctors from generations ago. Being the son of one of those old-time doctors, I can think of no higher compliment.

I visited him three times for severe arthritic pain in my right hand. He thoroughly examined X-ray of my hand and the hand itself. He diagnosed the cause and discussed treatment options. He was thorough, informative and helpful. He recommended a progressive treatment with the easiest solution first which’s has removed the pain for 12 months each time. Would highly recommend.

Top shelf in the profession; Dr. Schilling has clearly set the bar for others to follow. Walking into his office with so many unknowns , Dr. Schilling's down to earth approach set all my anxieties to rest. I have fully recovered and have since regained my full motion, and strength in half the time forecasted. Thank you Dr. Schilling, and your incredible office, and PT staff.

Eric H. in Brentwood, CA – Dec 23, 2016
Dr. Schilling is very personable and shows genuine concern for my problem. His surgical staff is first rate. The only reason for only four stars, it is very hard to get quick replys back to questions, though he does have his assistant reply normally after two or three days. Other than that one issue, I have no other problems or issues and I would highly recommend him if you need an orthopedic doctor

Dr. Schilling is an amazing hand surgeon. He is very patient and kind. He explained what would happen during my surgery and recovery. He actually called me at home in order for me to change appointment locations so he could get a better x-ray of my finger. He is truly a caring doctor.
