Dr. Schantz was wonderful. Not only did I feel confident seeing him because I looked up his credentials, but equally important to me was his bedside manner. Dr. Schantz was very easy to talk to and a very kind man. Iam glad that he is the doctor I elected to go to when i found a lump in my neck. No matter what the diagnosis turns out to be - I know I am in the right hands!

He was concerned about how I was feeling; he's very cautious about the type of treatment he prescribes and calms you down when you're afraid and nervous. I left his office today feeling much better emotionally and even physically despite thefact that I hadn't even gotten my prescription filled. I am taking my medication now and will follow up with him.
