Dr. Schuman is thorough and practical. I've never had such a comprehensive battery of exams on my eyes. In addition, Dr. Schuman took the time to explain the exams and results. I was pleased with my consultation and will refer friends and family to his practice. I wish I could find a Dr. Schuman in my other physicians.

There was a mix up with the time but other than that the doctor is very knowledgeable in his field, very professional and friendly. He answers questions honestly and with compassion. He is humble enough to refer me to other doctors for conditions he is not expert in.

They failed to inform me they don't take credit cards. They suggested I give them "anything I had on me." I told them I'd mail them a check. They suggested I go to an ATM and come right back to the office. I said no. If they had informed me before I had the exam I would have just left. The doctor said I had nothing wrong with my eyes but wanted me to come back for more testing. The doctor also loves to hear himself talk.

Doctor and staff were great!! This is the place to go if you have an eye problem. Dr Schulman was very thorough, obviously knowledgeable and excellent bedside manner.

Dr. Schuman was terrific. He devotes a lot of time getting to know his patients, which is why I wasn't seen right away (still, it wasn't a very long wait). When he sees, you know that he cares about you as a person and wants to make you better. Dr. Shuman is the ophthalmologist to see if you want a thorough examination from a very friendly and intelligent doctor.

Awesome as always. Dr. Schuman is the best, this is my third visit to him and I can't say enough about how amazing he is. Great bedside manners, never rushes you and makes you feel comfortable. His diagnosis and treatment plans continue to be on point. Only issue is the wait time.... But in fairness he does take his time with every patient so one can't really be upset about that. He is definitely worth the wait tho.

The best doctor I have been to in a long time. I'm particularly squirmish when it comes to someone poking at my eyeballs, but Dr. Schuman is patient, explains everything he is doing, and is just all around a nice guy. I went for a contact lens consultation and he took his time to make sure I found the ones I was most comfortable with. His office staff is extremely pleasant as well. I have recommended this office to several of my family members already. Dr. Schuman is the best!
