I was the first appointment in the morning and thought I would be seen immediately as a result, but the doctor was approximately 30 minutes late. The appointment was helpful and thorough once underway, and the advice was useful to me.He took an above average amount of time with me to diagnose and talk through my shoulder issue.

Dr Schildhorn was amazing. I instantly felt comfortable and appreciated his warm and kind approach. He didn’t recommend any unnecessary tests and took his time to really listen to me before discussing treatment. Honestly I cannot say enough positives about Dr Schildhorn and his staff!

My visit with Dr. Schildhorn was very pleasant. His conversation was very professional yet friendly. His diagnosis and recommendations were clear and to the point. The staff was also very friendly and the small wait of 30 minutes was well worthit. the office itself was 1 block from the subway and is conveniently located for parking if need be. The office also has an X-Ray machine on the premises for a quick diagnosis.

While Dr. Schildhorn was great, the operation he runs was not very efficient or professional. They only take cash or check, no HSA/FSA which is strange. Additionally, I don't know if the woman who operated the X-ray machine was a medicalprofessional as she was not in scrubs and had been working on billing in the back when I arrived.

Dr. Schildorn is nothing short of AMAZING. Initially, I went to see Dr. Schildorn as a second opinion, as the first surgeon didn’t seem to have much to say other than “I need surgery”. Dr. Schildorn not only thoroughly explained thenecessary procedure for my issue, he suggested reviewing the MRI disk report for a complete analysis first. 1 week out of surgery and I feel great he set me up with the next steps on the road to recovery. He’s very patient, genuine and honest! Dr. Schildhorn was able to accommodate my request date for surgery, which was very critical. Thank you! I would also like to recognize his front staff and Highlight Tamika’s exceptional service. Very friendly and made dealing with my job’s paper work for FMLA very easy !!! . HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I was there for a ganglion cyst removal and I literally didn't have to wait for even a second!! This was first ever experience in my life when I was seen by a doctor right within first few minutes from thetime entered in the clinic!!! Doctor Jef was able to help me with all my concerns. He made me comfortable at the clinic with such an ease as I felt as I was at my friend's place for Fun!!!. He clearly provided answers to my questions from a Doctor's point of view as well from a general point of view. I am super impressed!!! The staff was super courteous. The best in the city!!! Super star.

He was really nice to me. It’s not easy. I’m an ER nurse and former OR nurse with several ortho issues so I can be perhaps an overwhelming patient on 1st encounter. I’m pretty thankful. He spoke to me conversationally inregards to my shoulders. Explained in “OR nurse” terms to me (not layperson, not surgeon to surgeon) what my MRI means and gave me what I feel was a realistic outlook. I WILL follow up in 6 wks with him (hoping nothing exacerbates sooner) and I honestly believe he’ll do what he can to help me
