Temperamental, at best.

I initially went to see Dr. Schulman after a colleague had recommended him to me for his use & knowledge of "out of the box" thinking. The highlight of the visit is the length of time that he spends with each patient -- he is is thorough and detailed. Although, keep in mind, every patient is most definitely paying for this "luxury" at a very high premium. He's a true believer in the power of alternative medicine, almost to a fault. Dr. Schulman will get frustrated and even upset if his acupuncture or other therapies fail to yield any results. He simply insists that the patient isn't working hard enough or that they aren't coming frequently enough to notice any difference. After months, I think he actually began to resent me because I wasn't responding to his treatment - despite an incredible amount of time (>3 hours in total per week) and cost (>$20,000). At the point at which I stopped going - there were absolutely no permanent results that could be seen. While I hope that my situation is rare amongst his patients, it did seem that his regular patients had been there for a very long time (in much the same way a chiropractor hooks their patients in almost for life). One of the other frustrating things about this practice is the ever-present complaints about how much he's being paid. And make no mistake, he keeps account of every dollar that is billed. While (I think) most doctors prefer not to know the differences between what each patient pays them - for fear of such knowledge may skew their treatment decisions - Dr. Schulman is almost fixated on this as he relishes in the largess of owning such a boutique style practice. As I said, i hope my experience with this practice was unique - but from the others I've spoken to recently - it seems that is more of the norm than an exception.
