Excellent Doctor, compassionate, intelligent, care
Dr. Schultheiss made me feel at ease from the first appointment to 10 months later. He takes the time at each visit to carefully explain what were doing and where we are at. Dr.Schultheiss is above and beyond what I expected from an Oncologist. I Highly recommend him and his team for your cancer needs!

Routine hematology check every six months. Very short but sufficient.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Schultheiss to my family & friends. I was referred to him by my cancer surgeon when she retired. I am very pleased with her referral. He and his staff are very pleasant, organized, and helpful. He is focused on making my follow up go well.

On time for appointment. I only see him once a year but he is always familiar with my situation as soon as he enters the room. Shows genuine concern and does not rush.

Dr Schultheiss saved my life through two different cancer treatments. Having him for a doctor was the luckiest event in my life. He is a fantastic Doctor and I credit him for the fact that I am still alive and cancer free.

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.

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.
