I feel extremely lucky to have had Dr. Schultheiss for my doctor for the last 5 1/2 years. Through the treatment and for the aftercare for my lung cancer, he has always been knowledgeable, caring and extremely competent. He has even gotten me in quickly without an appointment. If you gotta have cancer, this is the guy you want getting you through it. I have a little trouble understanding his German accent, but we make sure I understand everything he's telling me. Everybody in that office is a pleasure to work with.

As a mid-level provider I did extensive research when choosing my oncologist. I am so fortunate to have found Dr. Schultheiss and St. Alphonsus Cancer Care. He is brilliant, kind, and determined to provide the best care possible. When I was initially diagnosed I was very frightened, but he, along with his staff, had made me feel safe.

I needed an appintment as soon as available but could only get one a week later. However, the scheduling assistant took my phone and name and called me as soon as she had a cancellation, so I got my appointment after waiting only one day.

This visit was a five years after cancer treatment follow up with no problems or new issues related to the previous treatment. No difficulties other than Dr. Schultheiss is soft-spoken and I have some hearing loss and have to ask for repetition sometimes.

Very knowledgeable provider especially in hematology. Soft spoken, so with my hearing loss, he is a bit hard to hear, especially with a mask and shield on. So I brought my wife along to hear everything that was said.

I was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer in 2011. Dr. Schultheiss was the oncologist that St. Al's set me up with. I've been grateful ever since--for his kindness, his patience with my gazillion questions, and his clear answers, based on very up-to-date research findings. I've always felt respected and heard when I go see him. (Plus, he has a dry, witty sense of humor that I wasn't even thinking I needed, but I did!)

I highly recommend Dr. Schultheiss. I have a genetic blood disorder that has to be monitored regularly. I have had to have medical procedures and surgery that has required extra close monitoring and specific treatment before, during and after. He has been excellent getting me through these times. He takes the time to explain what is needed and answers any questions I may. Very personable and professional. When I have had to call to get ahold of him with post surgical questions and/or need to be seen, everyone has been very helpful and kind. I am treated like a person and not a number. If the nurse or doctor is not available when I have called, the person taking the message is very helpful, gets the message to the nurse and Doctor. My call is returned very soonand needed help received.
