Dr Schuhknecht is really the best. I recently had the lap band surgery. I wanted to be able to lose 50 pounds and quit smoking. Historically I have gained anywhere from 50-120 pounds during the countless times I had quit. I would always end up going back to smoking to stop the weight gain. He and his excellent staff helped me to learn how to eat healthy, lose the weight I needed and have surgery that helped me to maintain control over my eating. I have not smoked in over 5 months and have kept my weight gain to under 15 pounds this time. I cannot say enough good things about Dr Schuckncht (except for having to spell his name) and his wonderful staff. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to make a lasting healthy change in their life.

Dr. Schuhknecht is a first rate surgeon who I have seen and experienced handling extremely difficult surgeries and patients. He is kind, understanding and is exceptionally bright. He did very well as a resident, is a strong teacher and a skilled surgeon, you'd be lucky to have him = I watched him train and have seen him treat patients as well as myself.
