I love Dr. Schuman and her office staff!! If I could give her 10 stars here I would. I have been a patient for a couple of years and she always takes the time to listen to how your health has been since the last visit and if you are having any different issues. She takes the time to explain her thoughts and recommendations. She is one of the best doctors overall I have ever seen, and I so totally trust her professional opinion.

The visit was for a 3 year old little boy. I met with Dr. Schuman and her assistants in a consult explaining the nature of the visit. The next time we met was for tubes to be placed in his ears then a surgical follow up appointment after that. Dr. Schuman is a very kind, gentle and knowledgeable physician with a wonderful bedside manner. She also seems compassionate about her ability to help patients. She was very informative as well as very kind to her new little patient as were her assistants. I would definitely recommend her as a ENT with no hesitation.

Dr. Schuman was awesome. I was impressed with her knowledge and answered all of my questions thoroughly. My 16-30 minute wait was due to my running late between work and my appt. Not hers or the office staffs fault. Made me very comfortable !!!

She was very kind and reassuring to me that what I was experiencing was not uncommon and that it wasn’t all in my head, well it was in my head but mostly throat. I was happy to hear that I wasn’t crazy and that she actually listened to me. She took her time and didn’t rush me. She explained everything she was doing and her plan of care in depth. She was very thorough.
