Dr schuekler and his staff treated me in a very professional and effective response to my knee discomfort. The next day after receiving a cortisone shot from him, I was able to walk again without the nagging pain that I have been experiencing fir a month. He spent time with me X-rays and a treatment option should I need it in the future. Very satisfied with him and the staff.

This was my first appointment so I do not have much bases to make a review as of yet. From what I have experienced, Dr. Schueckler was professional enough; he apologized for his tardiness; however, it I waited nearly one hour for my appointment. According to the confirmation letter, I need to be there 15 minutes early before my appointment or they will cancel the appointment itself; the letter was a bit aggresive. I am not okay with waiting that long for anyone, let alone a doctor.

Very professional, made us feel confident about the procedure he performed & we would recommend our family or friends to him for sure! Only suggestion is to send appointment reminder texts AFTER 9am please! NOT EVERYONE IS AWAKE AT 7AM!!!

Dr. Schuekler and his staff are grade A. I've had an elbow surgery conducted by Dr. Schuekler and am now receiving care for my knee. He and his staff are always professional, courteous, and respond quickly to questions or concerns. Bonnie, Dr. Schuekler's medical assistant, is always quick to return calls and is helpful in making sure all the proper paperwork is done.

Dr. Schuekler is highly recommended and probably an excellent doctor & surgeon, but he doesn't have thorough communication w/ his patients. He assumes patients have a higher level of knowledge & understanding about their conditions than they actually do. The office/referral staff are beyond bad. 3 times in there, each time needing a referral or some kind of communication with my Primary "we'll take care of that today", and not only did it not happen, but I went for weeks with injury untreated

I have not seen Dr Schueckler; I am rating the front office staff, especially the person closer to the door @3:40, Tuesday afternoon, 2/22. I have a compression hairline fracture of my right tibia, a strained ligament & have had trouble getting an orthopedic appointment. She was great when I came in. I'm in pain and disorganized, and she was patient helping me sort out the problem. I appreciate her skill.
in Grover Beach, CA |
Dr. Schueckler is an outstanding asset to the Central Coast. I had a complete avulsion of the hamstring . He performed surgery to reattach all three areas of the hamstring to my sit bone. I am very thankful that he performed the surgery, very happy with the end results. He is extremely professional but at the same time extremely warm and friendly. I think he is outstanding in his profession and I highly recommend him!!!

This is my 3rd surgery with Dr. Schueckler and this knee replacement went great. He is able to communicate in layman's terms and does not try to rush though recovery but guides you through. He listens but you have to follow his guideline and recovery is much better.
in Los Osos, CA |
Very knowledgeable, listens to what you say, really pays attention. I have been seeing him for several years and he is very consistent.
