Got me through 7 operations over the past 9 years. Condition is very greatly improved after surgery than before. Highly recommend.

No problems since my surgery in 2013.

I waited 6 weeks for an appt. with Dr. Schooley. He barely gave me 5 minutes of his time during my appt. He gave me no specific diagnosis, course of treatment, or other options. I found him to be very arrogant and apathetic. I called his office to express my dissatisfaction and was assured Dr. Schooley would be very upset and would call me back. It has now been 3 weeks with no call! Maybe it's just me but I want a doctor who genuinely cares about his patients and that was not Dr. Schooley.
