Patient Comments (1)
in Northglenn, CO |
I would absolutely recommend Dr.Schatz, She is very kind, soft spoken yet to the point on what she felt was necessary to my medical condition. I visited a few times prior to my surgery and then again two weeks after. At each visit, I never felt rushed. She was very caring, patient, and knowledgeable. She was thorough in her explanation of my condition so that I could easily understand her. I definitely would give her five stars.
Thank you so much Rebecca for the kind review. -Lisa
