Patient Comments (8)
in Savannah, GA |
I saw Dr. Shults in Savannah, GA. He was very thorough at explaining my condition and took time to answer all of my questions.
in Collins, GA |
Dr. Shults was very professional and helpful with the injuries that I was being seen for. I would recommend him for anyone that needs Ortho work.
in Dallas, TX |
Shults reviewed/denied Provider's request for W/C approval (Inj. 9/11, 2 phase neck fusion): Request:pt. to continue Physical Therapy 2x6. Supporting docs. submitted stating pt. progress with: discomfort, pain, numbness, upper parasthesia of arm, mobility of neck, h/a were less frequent/not as intent, also measurements of improvement of motion. I made it clear on my choice THERAPY vs DRUGS but again my choice is overruled. DENIALS to alternatives is why there's so many addicts in this world!!!!
Savannah, GA |
First off Dr. Shults is in Savannah Georgia. I have seen him in both his Pooler and Savannah offices. I love his front desk people. I did not wait over 10 minutes to be seen on any visit. Dr. Shults seems to care about me more that just a patient. Remembers my family (and dogs). He took the time to explain all my options to treat my old knee. I recommend him to all my friends.

From the very first moment I called the receptionist to my finally driving down to meet with Dr Shults, I was highly impressed. This was my first time meeting him as I needed a second opinion. I obtained information through various health websites referring solely on the reviews of other patents he had seen. And he did not disappoint. Very thorough and straightforward. Very pleased.
in Savannah, GA |
He is personable, takes time to listen and does not rush you out the door. His diagnosis and treatment plan was conservative and thorough. I will definitely recommend him.
in Houma |
On time. He took the time to read my 30 year file. With his help and Dr Abou.(Internal Medicine) I went from not walking to walking in 3 months ,not being able to take care of myself to doing so. He is a hands on doctor that cares about my health. All because of medicine other doctors was prescribing me.
in Houma, LA |
Great doctor. Acutally listens and does an examination. I can't tell you how many physicians that try to diagnose you on your MRI. I think he is a rare one that understands how to get a diagnosis by examining and listening to you. Fixed my problem.
