Dr Schlegel saved my husbands life!! We met him in in the ICU. My husband had been sick for a year and no one could figure out what was wrong with him. He met him and said he has cancer, and we need to find it. It was a Friday and he wasn’t going to make it through the weekend. He rushed all the necessary tests and found his cancer. Treated him immediately and saved him. We will for ever be grateful for him!!!

Not attentive nor compassionate to his patients. For someone who deals with cancer patients you would think he would have some sympathy. Every time he would come into the room you would think he has never seen me before. Was just a really off putting character. Would not recommend ever using him if you want quality care. On top of all that he was consistently 1 hour late.
