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.
