"Best Doctors" According to Peers
This is an utterly amazing physician. He has treated four of my "impossible" to help patients with success over time. Dr. Schaller is the rare fusion of a brilliant creative researcher and a caring motivated clinician.
I am now sending him relatives and friends from all over the country.
Now I find out most of his patients already come from all over the world in any season.
He has no need for fame or glamour, and perhaps that is why he keeps a low profile.
We are lucky to have this genius creative healer in our SW Florida area. Lisa RN
I have struggled with fatigue and aches for many years. I went to Mayo, the real Cleveland Clinic and Hopkins. They were sincere, but were only good at telling me what was not wrong with me.
Dr. Schaller was a miracle to deal with--respectful, creative, broad reader and he loves the tough patient. Meaning, his patients are usually very smart and come to him first or most have been to many others first.
In the waiting room I met folks from Ohio and England. They came for him, not for the sun!
I actually am now back working part-time, since I also want to have a life with my family and friends.
He fixed me and gave me my life back.
Good luck finding better in the entire state.
We flew to see Dr. Schaller after seeking help for many years for my children. Saw at least a dozen doctors who were 'experts' as watched my kids slowly disintegrating and not able to attend school. He actually knows about Babesia and Bartonella — has authored many books, could answer questions no one else had even researched. Kids are now getting A's in school, healthy and live normally. It was worth every second and cost to save their lives. The man is a maverick. Other doctor's actually come to see him, as do folks from all over the world; I met a few when we went to visit. Was not there for vacation, but Naples is a great place to travel and his staff were very helpful with all arrangements. If you care about your kids, or you yourself are sick, there is no one like him.

He has been treating many family and friends from all over USA for years. The best physician we know. He is a passionate reader, inventor, creative and solves problems. He is the smartest and most caring healer we know. He has saved many of our lives.
We have been to top named physicians and medical centers and it seems Schaller is happy just to hide in Naples. Perhaps that is why we sometimes meet famous people in his office. He does not need attention or fame.
One warning: If you ever try to trouble him or threaten him, you will be terminated — he does not need the patients.One warning: If you ever try to trouble him or threaten him, you will be If you really attack him, he knows and has treated many powerful people. You might find that every ethical and legal option will be used against you. So unless you are literally perfect, do not bite a man who has saved the lives or the family members of many protective old patients. Immunity will not save you from your dirty laundry, so just walk away.
I delayed seeing him because a sick and wacho person told me he was not good. So I went to see many other health care people over 18 months. My daughter and I only got worse.
This doc was kind, funny, playful and sharp. He is very talented.
Frankly I had given up and now we are 100% and 85% better and all our friends, family and teachers think we are just fine.
We are so pleased. They broke the mold with "Dr. J."
It took me some time to realize some people with various illnesses want the limited time of a full-time research person, who pays for his own full-time study, and they want it for cheap.
Some of these same people spent tons of time and money on clothes, cars, web sites, and other things.
They are ill and now I ignore them. Some hate the cream. Some hate those they cannot afford. I guess that is part of growing up or being mentally solid. You cannot have all you want. And a part-time researcher has only limited time.
I have been to many people for my fatigue.
It is now fully gone.
People write books, papers and have fatigue centers. James simply fixed me. No drama. No selling. He is serious and warm. I like the mix, but I really like being better.
I had started to be very concerned about disability. Now it is no concern.
He is playful, warm and a sweet healer. He spent 2 hours with me. We have never spent that amount of time.
He found about six things on full laboratory tests, and now doing great.
Since he is always reading, and inventing stuff, he is not cheap. Only sees patients part-time.
Any nasty words do not go over well. My sister had some concerns and was not appropriate, and his staff will help any day of week, but they do not accept verbal abuse or insults.
He is a fun and smart doctor.
This doctor saved my life. I went to several doctors over several years and was getting sicker and sicker. This doctor took the time to figure out the root cause and got me functional again ...
I am a health care worker who has been disabled for a number of years. I was given every diagnosis I could imagine and after wasting a good deal of money I was told this person likes hard patients.
He is quite good at finding things other reliable healers miss.
My family and I have noticed that I am getting better. He has me off treatments every 15 days for 3-4 days so I can see my progress--I was getting hopeless at one point.
After some months we all see that I am much better and now shop and walk and am able to socialize.
I expect to be able to work at some time if this progress continues.
The person is not offering routine fees and does not take insurance. This initially bothered me. But he gave me two free sessions without being asked, and if I keep this pace of improvement, I will be working in the future.
Schaller is worth the cost and the effort to see him.
My boyfriend and I are both REAL patients of Dr. Schaller.
We were lied to by every "specialist" in Texas and I too started to lose faith in doctors.
I joined a Lyme support group to find the best Lyme aware doctor. Through a private message I was given Dr. Schaller’s contact info. I went to his website and found FREE articles that were more in-depth than all of the Lyme books I have read ... needless to say I was impressed.
I emailed him in the middle of the night and he called me back immediately and scheduled an appointment for the next week...I was shocked. I can honestly say I prayed every night until the day of our appointment. As soon as we sat down on Dr. Schaller's couch he could see how sick Kevin really was.
He started talking with us about Kevin's symptoms and going into detail about the root causes and for the next 4 hours I listened and took down notes as fast as I could. By the end of our session I really believed that Dr. Schaller could help end Kevin's 10 year battle with his complex illnesses.
Dr. Schaller is not your typical "doctor" he has a unique personality and way of doing things.
For example, he doesn’t believe in the one size fits all treatment protocol used by most physicians; he tells jokes and treats his patients like family.
Kevin and I are still patients of Dr. Schaller’s and he has never once promised a miracle cure. He does however say if this doesn’t work we will try something else. He carefully monitors the progress of the treatment and makes adjustments accordingly. He is a big believer in patients understanding Lyme disease and Lyme disease co-infections as well as fully understanding each medication before taking it.
I would encourage you to read Dr. Schaller's material on Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, Mold and Behavior Troubles—the info is good.
Some very ill and sick hostile folks do not like him. I am glad I ignored sick people who seem to want free and cheap care.
I read posts from some troubled people who have never been a patient. I truly am not a fake patient, I wish I were.
The total hell that I have gone through in the last 2 years has given me a whole new perspective on what truly matters in life.
He truly is not your average Doc, but thankfully we clicked.
I am alive today because of him. I don't think it is fair for a small group of sick posters who do not know him.
Why would you want to deny truly needy patients of the "Best" MD in the field of Lyme and all the co-infections?
Who else has spent countless hours researching and writing books to educate those who are ignorant in the diagnosis and treatment of this horrific?
Since some think they "know too well" about how serious this disease is, who else is a top "quality" LLMD?
I do not feel any are better.
