Dr. Shuler is one of the first doctors I've ever had who I felt really genuinely cared about my overall wellbeing. I've been seeing her in treatment for narcolepsy and she's been pushing the insurance company so hard to give me the meds I need, I know lots of doctors would not want to to deal with the trouble and tell me to suck it up so I feel very lucky to have found her.

She shows no concern hardly at all. I have more than one neurology problem, but she does not show any interest except one. All she does I’d get you in and out!

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.

Atlanta, GA – Jul 31, 2016
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.
