I had a routine colonoscopy. Dr. Schub punctured my colon. I almost died and was in the hospital 8 times in two years. I had 4 operations, including having a colostomy with a bag for six months. I would not recommend him and highly suggest alternative methods of assessing colon health.

I've been a patient of Dr. Schub since first experiencing issues associated with job-related stress during my career in government. Without his compassionate care and continued follow-up, I seriously doubt I'd be enjoying retirement today. During my most recent procedures, focused on continued monitoring of my health, I've been especially impressed by the diversity of both his staff and patients. I'd strongly recommend him to anyone today needing his care.

I have seen Dr. Schub many times over the years for colonoscopies, endoscopies, and breath testing for digestive disorders. I find him to be genuinely concerned about his patients, and I appreciate the care he and his CNP take careto ensure that I understand procedures and findings. The office staff and the nursing/technician staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Dr. Schub and his team are efficient, professional, kind, knowledgeable and thorough from the time you start a phone conversation with the front desk to working with Dr. Schub. If there ever is a wait time, it is well worth the quality care. I can't stress enough that all staff are thorough and knowledgeable and take every precaution with an individual's health care.

Dr. Schub and his staff are professional, efficient, and personable. Detailed and clear information is provided to prepare you for the procedure. Facilities are organized and pleasant. Staff interactions give you confidence that they are knowledgeable and proficient. All in all the place to go for this medical procedure that some see as a bit intimidating.

I have seen Dr. Schub for probably 5 years now. He is very attentive and his P.A. is excellent as well. Dr. Schub's easy-going nature and sense of humor put me at ease. Dr. Schub frequently runs late on his schedule, but I Don't really have a problem with this. The reason? Because I know he is going to give me the amount of attention and time that I need and that is what he is doing for his other patients as well. His office staff members are always welcoming and competent.

Today l had my procedure done with doctor Russell Schub.His staff are amazing especially Heather and Meredith the nurses. I am totally afraid of needles and the both of them did their best to make me at ease even thru my tears Heather tried her best to distract me and Meredith did the same. Dr.Schub is the nicest person he has that amazing smile as well as letting you know everything and his presence makes you feel you are in good hands with him.The other doctors in the room was also amazing.

The office of Dr Russell Schub was excellent with the preparation and procedure of Colonoscopy. The instruction before the procedure was great and easy to follow. The pre-procedure nursing team was outstanding. The Doctor was outstanding. Most importantly, the follow-up call one day after to ensure all is well meant so much. I would recommend anyone to this facility.

Dr. Schub is the best. Years ago I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis an illness I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. He was the second doctor that I saw during this time and he performed an endoscope which revealed that I didn't have this illness anymore but gastritis. He is caring, highly knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend him to anyone suffering with stomach disorders. His staff are professional as well.
