I have known Dr. Schutz as a professional for many years and have witnessed his talents as a surgeon, compassion as a practitioner and attention to his patients’ needs. When it came to having a procedure done, it was an easy choice. First hand I have now experienced all that I knew him to be and am delighted with my results. He has a highly professional staff and the surgery center is highly skilled and has a wonderful staff as well. I highly recommend him! Connie, Rapid City, SD

I would highly recommend Dr. Schutz. He thoroughly explained all my options, provided statistics on the spot for chance of complications, and I felt completely comfortable with him. He is very kind and compassionate. I'm kind of sad that I won't need to see him again in the future!

I’ve had several cosmetic surgeries done by Dr. Schutz over the years and have been extremely happy with each result. I love that his work looks natural...never overdone. He’s hands down the best plastic surgeon...so of course, I could never trust anyone else to give me the same level of care and expertise!!

Dr. Schutz is an amazing surgeon who offers not only outstanding surgeon skills, but also has a great bed side manner. My surgery procedure was done in a professional setting with the aftercare provided at an exceptional level. I would recommended Dr. Schutz and his team to anyone looking at having cosmetic surgery. From the nurses to the folks in the finance department, this is a great group of individuals who truly care about the patients they serve. My surgery results are exceptional!

Dr. Schutz suggested and explained a procedure that I hadn't thought of, and I agreed it was a good option for me. The results are fantastic, and I'm thrilled that I went to see him. Dr. Schutz listens carefully, and takes the time to answer any questions. He did an outstandingly good job; beyond my wildest dreams excellent. He has a very good eye. I trust him 100%, and will always turn to him in the future.

I had surgery with Dr. Schutz fairly recently and I would highly recommend to NOT have surgery and/or other procedures with him. He does not stand behind his work, manipulated me, and lied in my patient record. The contract he has you sign means nothing. I tried to work out these issues with him and he had someone from his office send me a response letter. He is very unprofessional and unethical. Do not waste your money or your time! You will be very disappointed!

I am quite pleased with my facial surgery that Dr. Schutz performed. I was concerned about not looking "like me" when I was done, but Dr. Schutz assured me that I would look like me, only better. He was definitely right. I put all my faith in his ability and I am very happy with the results.

After a consultation, I would not pursue surgery with this individual. Perhaps surgery would have been "successful". I decided to value my time, health, and resources more than my meaningless cosmetic issue, even as this individual used insensitive, strong, and abrasive language when discussing the appearance of my cosmetic issue, perhaps in an effort to increase the likelihood I would pursue surgery or perhaps he is simply that unable to consider others as whole human beings. Typical Dr Ego.

Dr. Schutz tried to tell me that I had a common medical condition after telling him that I have a less common one. He insisted that I go to a nutritionist, and kept pushing the issue after I declined. Even after I thanked him for his time and made it clear that I would not be using his services, he did not leave the room so I could get dressed. He simply continued to push his nutritionist friend. When he did leave, he sent in his staff afterword with price quotes! I left in tears.
