Always professional. He actually listens and tells you like it is. Not blunt just doesn’t sugar coat or lie. Very rare traits. The Oncology staff is great too.

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.
