Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

DEFINITELY AN A++ PULMONOLOGIST
I am ashamed not to have sung her praises before this; Dr Sandy, as we affectionately call her, has been my doctor for some 14 years—ever since we moved to KY from AZ. I had had one of the top pulmonologists in the PHX area, and Dr. Sandy matches him in knowledge and skill. She is extremely intelligent and caring! Her suggestions and treatment for MAI were/are incredibly helpful. Right now, due to her suggested course of treatment, I am free of my horrible cough. THANK YOU!! Other great assets about Dr. Sandy are her caring attitude, listening skills, and her readiness to answer all questions and concerns. In all these 14 years, Dr Schuldheisz has NEVER steered me wrong. A person can tell much about an office by the attitude of the staff. Everyone I’ve met on this staff are/have been friendly. Her PA mirrors Dr. Sandy’s caring attitude. Love ‘em both!!

Rude staff, won’t pick up any phone calls and they always are rushed or have an attitude on the phone. I had to wait an hour over my scheduled appointment to see anyone, therefore I was late to work. I’ve been trying to get a different prescription for three weeks and no luck because they won’t send it in, lies and says they do but I’ve tried two different pharmacies and they say the same thing. Nothing has been sent in. Very unprofessional.

Terrible treatment!None response to calls. I was in trouble with pneumonia. I ended up staying in the hospital for 5 days. I feel an excellent Dr. in Lexington. He changed everything and I am so much better. This is a short version of a really bad experience.

Was continually told for 2 yrs I had asthma, conditions worsened. PULMONOLOGIST in Lexington today informed me I had COPD/EMPHYSEMA with ONLY 40% lung functioning capacity. To say negligent is putting it mildly. This office needs to be checked out by whomever is in position to do so. Also almost every patient is issued CPAP machine given out by James Medical per Dr Sandy or Mandy whether they need one or not!!
