I was in excrutiating pain from what I thought was a shoulder injury. Dr. Schildhorn was more than empathetic, went out of his way to secure me the MRI appointment I needed and wrote me the appropriate prescriptions till i see another specialist. He is one in a million.

THE OFFICE OBLY TAKES CASH OR CHECK. I wish I had known that before I arrived. He was great. Very empathetic. Seemed to hear me and not just act like he was listening. Was quick with recommendations for my knee swelling. Ordered radiology right away and scheduled me the next day for follow up. And he's a super snazzy dresser.

I don't typically leave reviews for satisfactory service, but I am leaving this positive review as Dr. Schildhorn in my estimation went over and beyond. I was quite happy with the service of his practice. Visited his clinic for a consultation regarding a possible torn left pectoral muscle. Brought my MRI images. Dr. Schildhorn reviewed and quickly noticed the poor quality and location of the images. He disagreed with the initial severe assessment of the radiologist and felt the injury was minor. After discussion, I later called the MRI center to request a refund or re-scan. They initially refused, and asked to speak directly with the practice. Eventually, Dr. Schildhorn's practice personally called to inform me the MRI center would re-scan me and to book an appointment with the center directly. After re-scan, the radiologist downgraded the severity of the injury, agreeing with Dr. Schildhorn's interpretation. I was very grateful for the assistance of Dr. Schildhorn's practice in this. It was a professional, informative and satisfactory experience. Would fully recommend his practice to others.

Dr. Schildhorn is AMAZING! I came in after having a sub-par experience with a different physician, so I was a bit hesitant that this might turn out to be the same, but that was not the case at all. His bedside manner is wonderful - he is extremely patient and knowledgeable. He is friendly and supportive. I left feeling very safe and well taken care of, something that is so important when dealing with serious injuries/trauma to the body. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

I've seen Dr. Schildhorn for a couple of different injuries over several years. He's thorough, patient and kind, and most of all I trust him to make the best decisions for my health and wellbeing. I don't mind waiting a few extra minutes to see him, if there happens to be a wait, because I know he'll also take his time with me. All of this can be hard to find with doctors, so I appreciate this experience all the more for it.

Very good office visit. Short wait time. Filled out all the forms online on ZocD- that was terrific- so I didn't need to fill out any forms. Dr. is very personable. We got directly to the health issue at hand specifically. Agreed on a treatment plan and began that process and I left. One of the best Dr. appts. I've had.
