Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was highly impressed with Dr. Schueler and his staff. It was very refreshing to have a doctor actually listen to you. He is straightforward and personable. He performed a laminectomy at L4 - L5. I will highly recommend Dr. Schueler.

Dr S and his PA Ashton are fantastic! I have been seeing them for a year now with multiple issuses. Never did I ever think to see someone else because they do whatever they can before needing to operate. Their bedside manner is kind, understanding and sometimes make me laugh because their funny!

Doctor Schueler is one of the greatest doctors I have ever had the pleasure of receiving care from. Very respectful and nice guy, he treated me as a family member instead of a patient. He saved my life when he did my microdiscectomy and I owe this man my life. I highly highly recommend him
