Philosophy Of Care

I became a doctor to help people with their medical issues and improve their quality of life. As a neurosurgeon, I treat diseases of the nervous system. My goal is always to provide compassionate care and to treat people like they’re a member of my own family. It’s important to me to spend as much time as possible with each patient in order to understand his or her issues, and to develop an individualized treatment plan to meet their specific needs. I believe in educating patients about their medical issues and including them in the decision making process. It is my hope that each patient I treat benefits from their experience with me as one of their physicians.

Dr.Schueler, was very calm while I asked many questions regarding my ...surgery. Dr. Schueler throughly explained what happens and what he would do throughout the surgery, He explained that I would have a sore throat and possibly I may have a hoarse voice for a few weeks..Dr.Schueler, state's clearly that this surgery would not reverse the symptoms I have right now. Dr. Schueler stated that he hopes that any further worsening of my present symptoms. would stop I feel very comfortable with Dr. Schueler operating a second time... His staff especially his PA were very knowledgeable about the surgery and very helpful scheduling my surgery with post-op visits.
