Having practiced dentistry for 50 years and taught practice management at a dental research institute associated with the university of Miami and having lectured on practice management for 25 years I have seen many professional offices and the quality of care Dr.Schulze And his staff provide his patience is the BEST .

Dr. Schulze is an excellent doctor who always has your best interests at heart. He removed cataracts from both my eyes and I could not be happier or more satisfied with the results. My vision is great now! Every member of his staff is courteous, friendly and professional. The surgical center itself is extremely well organized and spotlessly clean. Dr. Schulze explains every procedure thoroughly and addresses any and all questions you may have. He is highly qualified and also quite personable.

I chose Dr. Schulz to perform cataract surgery since he had successfully corrected a difficult condition my husband experienced several years ago and I’m so pleased I did. The entire experience was positive, the staff caring and knowledgeable, and Dr. Schulz highly professional and skilled.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schulze for several years after seeing him for a problem that no other eye doctor in Savannah could diagnose. Most recently I have had cataract surgery with toric lenses implanted and I am elated with the results. I have made the rounds to other eye doctors, so I feel qualified to give Dr. Schulze the highest rating possible. I am deeply grateful for the expert, professional care I received from both he and his staff!

Being apprehensive of letting anyone or anything make my vision worse than it was. My procedure went smoothly and I was walked through the entire procedure. Both the doctor and his staff were very professional and courteous through it all. Highly recommended

I have just had eye surgery done with Dr. Schulze at the eye center. The whole staff was outstanding, professional and personable. Couldn't asked for better care from the staff and Dr. Schulze. I would recommend this group to anyone who is experiencing vision problems. Thank you Dr. Schulze and staff. May the Lord bless you as you help others with vision problems.

Dr. Schulze was recommended by a friend who had excellent results with cataract surgery. Am somewhat of a perfectionist and was thrilled with my results. Had cataract surgery on both eyes and got multi focal lens. Within 24 hours of each surgery could see beautifully both near and far vision. Dr. Schulze and team are friendly, welcoming, efficient. Surgeries are quick, painless. Nurses are very caring and calming. Dr. Schulze is very reassuring and makes sure you are happy with the results!

Having cataract surgery on both eyes I was so nervous, but the staff there are amazing and I had a wonderful experience. They are warm-hearted and very kind, very professional and are on top of everything--so organized! Being able to have everything done right there at their facility was a big plus, instead of scheduling a hospital for the surgery. Their surgery center made it convenient and it cut down costs. I was fortunate to have been recommended to Dr. Schultz!

How was your experience with Dr. Schulze Jr?

About Me

As a fourth generation physician, I am fortunate to have many wonderful role models within my family.  Our goal is to pursue care that puts the best interests of the patient before all other concerns.  In my practice, I like to think that I don't treat eyes, I treat people, which is another way of saying that for every eye I treat, our plan of care is customized to the individual.
