She does not have a very good bedside manner , and is very flipped and rude at times , I would not recommend her as a Dr. My mother has dememtia and I bring my mother to her appts . she will ask her questions without consulting with me afterwards . My mother is not really able to answer her question honestly because she is suffering from this illness .

Dr. Schuler seemed knowledgeable, but also that she wanted to get through the appointment as fast as possible, repeatedly interrupting me - even when trying to answer her questions. She said that her MRI orders never get denied - but her MRI order was denied.

Dr. Shuler is an excellent doctor. She listens to your concerns and advises you as to the treatments available. If you're in the need of a Neurologist, I don't believe you'll find a better one anywhere around. I've had other Neurologist in the area, with equally high ratings, but she is much better than the others I've had.

Sara Shuler is the kindest neurologist I have ever seen. She listens and thinks and is careful about what she says. I would recommend her to everyone but I want to make sure there is still time to see me.
