Patient Comments (4)
in Warminster, PA |
I just waited 1 hour and 45 minutes for an appointment that lasted 1 minute and 45 seconds. No explanation and only a very perfunctory apology. Staff provided no information in response to my "how much longer" inquiry.

I found Dr. Shusterman to be a bully. His manor was forceful and I felt like I was an inconvenience to him. His office staff were very nice and helpful.
in Newtown, PA |
Having a problem for years NOT being diagnosed for my health problem was quite frustrating and upsetting. Dr Shusterman spent time with me asked questions and performed a test and he gave me a diagnosis...He is a great Doctor...I would highly recommend anyone who has a breathing or sleep problem to consult with him......
in Bristol, PA |
This Dr. knows his stuff and he is a very proficient at his practice. A little to forceful with his sleep apnea theories.
