Really like Dr Schulze, did a great job for surgery on trigger finger. However, when I went in for 2 week follow up, I waited and hour and 15 minutes to see Dr, then nurse who took me back was NOT very friendly, almost rude, offered NO explanation, apology or reason for the long wait, then waited another 15 minutes to see Dr, who spent a total of 1-2 minutes with me, then waited another 10 minutes for someone else to come in and take 3 stitches out. Why didn't he? Guess my time is not important

While on vacation, my trigger finger stuck permanently and I was in a lot of pain. Hoping for an appointment to see Dr. Schulze, he refused to fit me into his schedule, his office citing, "it being a holiday week..." I explained that I had been under the care of a hand specialist at the Phila Hand Center and a scheduled surgery in 3 weeks. I begged for his help as I was in constant pain but they refused. What has happened to physicians who actually care about helping people? Not Dr. Schulze.
I'm sorry about your negative experience & your perception that I do not care about helping people. I have devoted my life to helping people and my patients will attest to the fact that I do care and do everything I can to help them. Since you did not post your name or the date I cannot tell you the situation or contact you. The date you posted was a Saturday but after the holiday. We often double & triple book patients to accommodate them but there are just so many hours in a day.

He has repaired my right thumb and corporal and cubit all tunnel damage on both arms. Three of my friends have also been patients of his. We call him the magic man. I can't possibly sing enough praises.

Dr Schulze corrected my Carpal tunnel syndrome to both wrists this past summer. My incisions were smaller than 1" in length and I was back to work in 2 weeks after my surgery. Great experience with all involved.

Dr. Schulze is very knowledgable and he will tell you exactly what he can or cannot do for you. He will try conservative approaches first and then progressively move toward surgery if that becomes the only option. Very skilled surgeon and fun and personable bedside manner.
