Dr. Schumacher saw me right at my appointment time, but seemed very distracted, asking me the same questions 2-3 times, and repeating himself. I would probably not visit again.

The appointment was prompt, in fact, it was ahead of schedule. I felt like he was rushed. It felt like a factory. He listened to my issues and prescribed a course of action that is working but I would not go back.

Dr Schumacher was great. Very prompt and on schedule. I also appreciate his bedside manner - friendly and easy to talk to. Most importantly, he is super real with you; if you don't need to come back, he won't force you to do a follow up. It feels like he cares about patients, not making money. There are also x Rays in house which is great because you don't need to travel and they really look at what could be wrong with your foot.

No wasted time - his assistant took the x-rays first which they have instantly available for him to see - he explained what was going on - laid out treatment plans from conservative to aggressive - took time to answer questions - electronically sent off a scrip before I even had my shoes back on. Run, don't walk, to see him if you need a foot doc.

Dr. Schumacher is a warm, caring, conscientious physician. He is an extremely proficient podiatric surgeon, and an excellent diagnostician. He is conservative in his approach, and does not recommend or subject his patients to unnecessary procedures. I would highly recommend him without any reservations.

I love Dr Schumacher. He has a wonderful beside manner and really knows his stuff. I had plantar fasciitis. He said I needed orthotics but didn't push hard since it is a big expense. So we went through several lesser treatments and eventually arrived at the decision to get orthotics. As he predicted, the orthotics cured the problem. I would recommend to anyone.

He was friendly, cordial and accomodating. However, a doctor asking you questions and typing on the computer can make you feel only so engaged. A little more eye contact would have been nice. Also, i do have some other rather obvious issues with my feet but was super surprised that a thorough exam was not given. I'm in sales and i would be looking for other issues to treat. :)

Dr. Schumacher is very quick and professional (I wouldn't describe him as warm, but rather his manner is straight-forward and he "tells it like it is"). He didn't sugar cote that a removal process would be painful, but he did seem clear about what the most effective solution would be and was confident and informative (it ended up working). He's a cool/chill guy, who seems to "know his stuff". My favorite part of working with Dr. Schumacher, however, has absolutely been his front-desk assistant Nancy, she is polite and friendly and very courteous (on the phone and in person). Last week, due to weather, she had to reschedule me, and was never pushy or cold and confirmed my change in time with a chipper "perfect" or a "beautiful". It's just such a change from some of the "personalities" you come up against in the medical front desk assistant process (in NYC). She is the 5-star part of this review.
