Care Philosophy

Neurosurgical illnesses of the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves can be quite lifestyle altering.

I have seen Dr. Schultz twice and both he, his nurse Marleen and PA Kathy were exceptional. I am a medical management professional myself and have upmost respect for their professionalism and care shown to me. Dr. Schultz thoroughly went over my MRIs and explained my options in detail. Answered all my questions and didn't feel rushed. I've had several friends who's seen him for neurosurgery procedures and had great outcomes. I'm fully trusting him with mine! Many thanks Dr. Schultz and staff!

Atlanta, GA |
Rude staff, doesnt care about patient care, impersonal, overly flirty, there is no communication between staff and especially to the patient. Rude to patients with severe spine injury who need pain medicine.

His staff was rude and had no compassion. I've have delt with numerous medical offices over the last 8 years with all my medical issues and I have never been so disrespected by a medical staff.
Dawsonville, GA |
I have NOT had a procedure done, so my evaluation is only of 2 office visits (one with him and one with NP). He explained what he found thoroughly, took adequate time with me and arranged for follow up.

he messed me up and will not take the blame DO NO GO TO HIM!
in Clayton, GA |
Extremely professional..and kind...he performed successful surgery on my neck three years ago. Did great follow up . I now have lower back problems..he explained the MRI in detail as my son and I saw the the images. I TRUST him. He has a neat sense of humor..is positive . Always takes time and listens . I left his office feeling secure in the fact that if surgery is needed, Dr. Schultz will be there for me.
