Best doctor out there

My family has been going to Dr. Schlam for over 20 years. Is a kind caring and patient doctor. He always calls us after the appointment to follow up personally. Even when you forget he follows up to make sure you do everything that is required to make yourself better. He doesn't push the medicine on you if he prescribes it it is definitely needed we have high respect for his opinion.

Longtime patient

This man is what a doctor should be. Easily one of the brightest people that I have ever known, he actually makes eye contact; he really listens and truly cares. He actually even called me himself to check on my progress..... He got help for an elderly woman with Alzheimer’s who has no family. All of the other doctors she saw just passed her along; they didn't want to get involved.

Makes you want to care for yourself

Best doctor! His guinine concern makes it easy to be honest with him, even when it's difficult. I had some concerns that I was embarrassed to discuss but he made me feel very comfortable. I don't feel that I have to hide things from him.

Best care you will ever find.

Best Doctor that I have ever met. Genuine concern for his patients. He personally calls on follow up not someone from his staff. He sits down with you at the conclusion of every visit and looks directly at you when he is speaking. I always leave his office at ease and confident that I received the best care.
