Once I finally saw him it was very good. Had an NP first, who took down lots of info. Dr Schub is very kind and explained everything. He takes his time with patients which is why he runs late I think . The NP was great too.

I met with Dr. Schub ans Physicians Assistant Z. Chen. They both had wonderful bedside manner. Both were very thorough during the examination. However, the wait time was 45 minutes and I arrived at least 20 minutes before my appointment timewhich was at 4:15. I wish that Dr. Schub would improve the wait time for the patients. That would streamline the entire process and of course make for a better experience for his patients and the staff (especially the front office staff who I am sure hear the complaints).

Dr. Schub is an excellent doctor and worth the wait. He asks many good questions as he tries to figure out what the problem is. He works along with a PA, and together they create a plan for treatment/diagnosis. Very efficientand caring in how soon they could follow up with me. I highly recommend Dr. Schub and his staff.

He didn't know the specifics of my case even though he's seen me in the last two months. He asked questions about HIS treatment of me -- things that he would've known if he'd reviewed the treatment notes at all. Not very impressed.

I have been seeing Dr. Schub for several years now. He is the only doctor that has talked me into actual preventative medicine (ie. a colonoscopy), he has performed in-office procedures without my fear factor on guard, and overseen a veryserious case of gallstones and pancreatitis that brought me pretty close to dying, and visited me at my latest hospital stay. Needless to say, I like him. And his staff is just awesome. He has in-office OR rooms for procedures and his own nursing staff for sedation. I have a huge needle phobia, but I don't have panic attacks when I see him. You might have to wait awhile. I won't lie, I've waited over an hour before. But remember that just as he has spend that much time with his last patient, he will spend that time with you too. I have never felt rushed. And I have the added benefit of seeing his Physician Asst. as well. It's like seeing 2 docs for the price of one. :)

This doctor made me feel so comfortable, and I did not feel judged at all. I'm a anxious person who hates going to the doctors to talk about embarrassing problems with my body. His personality is a mixture of professional, friendlywith the right amount of silliness to lighten any anxiety you may have. I'm looking forward to going back for my next appointment, which is something I thought I would never say about a visit with a gastroenterologist! Haha

Waited 1 hr and 20 minutes before seen. Doctor didn't really seem to tell me anything that I already didn't know. Terrible bedside manner. He was rough in moving my head around to check mobility with plates and screws that Ihave from cervical fusion. There were several other things that didn't go over so well with me.

I was a new patient.... ENT recommended I see GI doctor on soon side and was able to get next day appt on zoc doc... very nice person who answered (yes a real person not a recording saying someone would callyou back!) Maggie, said scheduling Jan 23 but to try online for sooner and that worked out great. Front desk very friendly and warm, as was tech who took my vitals and Debbie the nurse practitioner who took initial info before dr came in. Dr. Schub a very friendly, thoughtful doctor who listened carefully and asked pertinent questions and came up with a plan of action for me which is a relief after having had months of upper respiratory issues affecting my throat and swallowing. There was a little bit of a wait, but I didn't mind as it shows he takes time with his patients.
