From the moment I stepped into Dr. Schuster's office, I knew I had come to the right place. Having been diagnosed with a schwanomma on my lower spine, he completely put me at ease. He told me what he would do and that it would relieve the pain immediately. The surgery was swiftly scheduled and the day it occurred was amazing. Greeted by Dr. Schuster he completely put me at ease and proceeded to do what he had come to do. His bedside manner and professionalism was beyond all expectataions.
I selected Dr. james Schuster because of his clarity about my problem and the way he could improve my condition. I liked his confidence, relaxed manner, but total lack of arrogance. We have had 1 follow up visit and he spent as much time as I needed reviewing the x-ray. The staff made me feel comfortable about calling with any questions. i am happy that I picked Dr. Schuster and the Univ. of Penn.
