Carson City, NV |
This was one of the worst experiences I've ever had at a Doctors office. The receptionist was super rude. Dr. Schlager did not listen at all and he even up in the middle of me talking and ended my appointment. It was the end of the day, he must of had more important things to do. Horrible experience from beginning to end. I will say the nurse was very pleasant and personable.

Dr. Schlager was very through and took his time in explaining my issue. Because I am from out of town, he also went the extra mile. I highly recommend him. His staff was also very helpful in making arrangements for an MRA that I needed to have.
in Minden, NV |
Dr Schlager pushed surgery unnecessarily. He also performed a fine needle aspiration test without ultrasound which is not the best way to perform the test. I've heard negative reports from friends since I had my own negative experience too.
