Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schulze Jr "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. "
