Patient Comments (2)
Phoenix, AZ |
Well the exam she gave me was very thorough, My overall experience was extremely poor. I waited for almost 40 minutes before being seen after which she made me feel like I was completely wasting her time. When the exam was over she rushed out of the room. She didn't tell me anything that I was supposed to do or if I was supposed to wait for a nurse to come in for further instructions. I waited in the exam room by myself for 5 minutes before leaving. Extremely dissatisfied.

I arrived at Dr Schluender's office a few months ago on a second opinion. After seeing another Dr for a few years and no relief. To be honest I was a mess and in pain for over 3 years. She surprised me because she knew exactly what I was going through and what needed to be done. Always reassuring me things would get better and things would get fixed. I actually saw Dr Schulender today for my post surgery check up and I'm on my way to being back to normal. Thank you Dr Schulender!!!!
