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.

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.

He is a wonderful kind listening doctor, who took my mashed up hand from an accident and made it whole. I highly recommend him! He even called me personally to see how I was doing!
