Patient Comments (11)
I saw three doctors and had multiple tests before seeing Dr. Schub who, after listening to me, said let's do an endoscopy and that procedure revealed my problem. After being treated, I am extremely happy to say that the follow up endoscopy revealed that the treatment worked. I *literally* owe my life to Dr. Schub.

I am a long term patient of Dr. Schub and visited his office recently to undergo a colonoscopy screening. I found this experience very positive and satisfying and was treated quite professionally and personably by him and his staff. I found Dr. Schub to be both patient friendly and clinically focused, thorough and responsive to my concerns. I would happily recommend him to anyone who may need medical treatment in his area of clinical expertise.

I am very happy with Dr. Schub and his practice. I have visited for regular care and a colonoscopy. Both were great experiences! I highly recommend Dr. Schub.

Excellent knowledge and experience. Caring and supportive about patient and patient welfare which is rare. Gives patient the time they need, and can sometimes run late because of it. So come prepared for that possibility. However, he will make it up to you then or next visit. He takes on very complex, stressful situations and is greatly appreciated by me for his caring ability and openess to do that. Heads above others in his field.

Dr. Schub treats a few members of my family. We find him and his medical team to be personable, knowledgeable, caring and thorough. He listens well and treats us with respect. Sometimes the administrative staff isn't as efficient; and sometimes we don't get a timely phone call back for inquiries left on voice mail. Yes, Dr. Schub often runs late as the day progresses; but some of the best Drs I've had in life run late, because they give as much time as needed to each patient.

colonoscopy procedure went well as expected, as planned and with confidence. No worries...
in Columbia, MD |
I would NOT recommend him to anyone. I had a screening appt. scheduled for 2:30 p.m. and did not see the doctor until 4:00! He was running behind schedule from the colonoscopies he had done that morning and now I know why. My colonoscopy was schedule for7:30 a.m. and he did not even arrive until 7:50. By the time he started the procedure, he was already over 30 minutes behind schedule. I considered his lack of punctuality very disrespectful and I am seriously considering changing doctors.

Please understand your benefit package prior to your visit. this office charged me a copay and held it even though the services were covered at a 100% by my insurance provider
in Linthicum Heights, MD |
Dr. Schub listens to what I have to say. The staff is very good, very efficient. Colonoscopy experience excellent from entering the facility to discharge. Have been a patient of Dr. Schub's for many years and recommend him very highly.

Dr. Schub's and his office was great. They went the extra mile to help me deal with the VA's Veterans Choice program and we were finally successful in getting the appointments scheduled in spite of the VA.
in Laurel, MD |
Took all the time I needed to explain my problem. Did a through examination and prescribed treatments after discussion options with me. I'm always very satisfied with his all aspects of Dr. Schub and his office.I highly recommend him.
