Dr. Schumacher was not engaging at all and didn't seem to care about me as a patient or person. I felt more like a statistic in that I was simply there to add to his probably already deep pockets. He entered the room with a very uninterested "hey how are ya", he didn't shake my hand, he had his face glued to the computer monitor and was more focused on documenting everything than anything else. His whole demeanor would be comparable to that of a feminine disposable cleansing product one might use on a summer's eve + the bag it came with

I think he's very in tune with foot pain, and although he works very fast he doesn't skip a beat. He's great and I have already recommended a few of my co workers to him .

He recommended surgery which I never asked for and had nothing to do with the reason I was there. Didn't take his time. I felt like a number not a person. I saw him more than once and I felt like this on every occasion.

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.

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.
