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.

On past visits I have been very pleased with this doctor. But this time you could tell he was rushed to make up time. Since this was just a follow up I felt pushed through. "Yeah, your good. See you next time. Goodbye."

Visit was for a 2d opinion - decided to change doctors from prior to *Dr. Schueler.
