Specialties

Dr. Michael W Schuster has the following 3 specialties

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Schuster is currently treating my husband for Non-Hodgkins lymphoma and while obviously, we won't be able to know the outcome for a while, we've had a good experience with him. We did a LOT of research before settling with a specialist, and if you check this guy out online, he's done some pretty ground-breaking stuff with bone-marrow transplants (building up the program at Cornell, Gift of Life, etc.) Dr. Schuster's a straight-shooter and he really knows his stuff. My husband and I both appreciate a doctor who will sit down and explain everything to you without "dumbing it down" or being condesending (sp?). The office does get busy, but I just attribute that to him being really good at his job, so it doesn't bother us. Try to get an early appointment towards the beginning of the week if you can. Anyways, he deals with a lot of critical cases, so if you're looking for a doctor who will just magically give you a pill and POOF - make your grave health problems go away in a week, I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure nobody can do that (except for the guy up there). But Dr. Schuster comes pretty close so far. PS- Also, his nursing staff is AMAZING :)

Many years ago he was the bone marrow transplant specialist on my sister- in- laws non hodgkins lymphoma case. He did the bone marrow transplant. He was just awful. uncaring, negligent with his work and she did die.The chemotherapy Doctor who was wonderful apologized to my brother for sending them to him. I guess if she had made it I wouldn't be writing this but she didn't make it and I will always feel that another Doctor could have done alot better. We will always hate him for his uncaring attitude. He is no super Doctor by any means.Please look else where.

Amazing, Caring Doctor

My sister was diagnosed with AML three years ago. When I asked my primary care for a referral, he told me Dr. Schuster was the best, and I would agree a hundred times over. Not only did he take the time to go through all of our treatment options at a really scary time, but Dr. Schuster was extremely caring and even battled our insurance company on our behalf (grr.... insurance) when they denied her coverage. My sister is in remission now - fingers crossed - and he is the reason why. I am so grateful to this man, and would recommend Dr. Schuster whole-heartedly.
