Common Sense Advice With No Lecture

Typically the wait is much shorter than for most doctors. Schumacher's manner is honest, and direct, but caring. He spends as much time as he needs to with me. He returns calls quickly and calls to follow up when prudent to do so. Labs are checked regularly without me having to call the office. Staff is generally very polite.
