Dr Schutte came highly recommended via from my co workers ,neighbor and many people who work in different aspects of the medical field. From the first initial visit he was awesome he is very attentive and most of all he listens and he highly concern about his patients well being. I was blessed to have him to perform my procedure and I will recommend that everyone see him for their medical needs. He truly cares and the response on the patient portal is quick and the staff is sincere Truly Thanks

I am writing this mostly because it is long over due! You performed acl reconstruction for my second time in 2010. Dr. Leonard performed my first surgery. After deciding we would do the hamstring graph andrehab to get back healthy my knee was shifting right, causing very little stability! I moved to Houston Texas and the iron man institute and ended up needing ACL surgery for the third time due to Mr. shutte installing my acl graph at a very imcorrect angle!!!!! I have all records!!!!!

Good listener and explains well.

Waited an well over an hour for us to be seen. Was treated rudely by the assistant when she wanted to take X-rays. What she was going to take X-rays of who knows because we hadn't seen or consulted with a Dr. Got crammed in a small exam room, waited again, and then after a short discussion with the Dr., the appointment was over. 3 hours for this.... All for the diagnosis of being double jointed, which we already knew.
