Dr Schurman accused me of being a pill popper because I asked him to give me something for the pain I was in after quadriceps tendon surgery. Lied and said he had doctors letters saying I was trying to get pain meds. The 3 months I went to him he never once did a culture on my open wound to see if there was an infection. there was and was on an iv antibiotic for over a month. When he removed a hematoma he punctured the sonovial membrane which is still draining 6 months later.

Did a surgery on me left everything a mess with my surgery and lies about it. We will see how this turns out

Awful. Went for consult on Hidradenitis Suppurativa & laser & he was so behind the times on the latest treatment and findings out there, it was scary. He looked like he just woke up, no energy, terrible personality. Not willing to listen & he couldn't wait to leave the room, I think I intimidated him with my knowledge. Has no interest in preventing it from getting worse or less invasive treatments like laser, just wants 2 do surgery. Argued that it is not a follicular condition when AAD says so

Dr. Schurman was the on-call doctor. I saw my doctor regarding a developing complication from surgery. My doctor gave me care instructions and instructions to call the on-call line if anything changed or became worse. They did, I called, Dr. Schurman called back an hour later told me to relax and accused me of hypersensitivity. He would not see me or listen to what I was saying in regards to the condition. On Monday I had a large hematoma drained from the surgical area.
