Rating Dr. Schaller-Public Patient Speaks Out on Real Experiences in Complex Care
February 8, 2011
To Whom It May Concern:
I have been Dr. Schaller's patient for almost two years.
I have found him to be an extremely dedicated physician in constant pursuit of cutting edge research and treatments. Because he has obviously studied hard in many select issues that relate to me, his knowledge in these areas is profound, far surpassing any of the many well intended physicians I have seen over the 20 plus years of my medical troubles such as:
He has the professional integrity to apply his knowledge to each individual and does no "one-size-fits-all" medicine.
Dr. Schaller knows that each patient presents has their own unique set of medical troubles and symptoms. He has an amazing tenacity to find each missing link in a complex set of illnesses, as one missed link can be the difference between recovery and continued illness.
He has also demonstrated a deep commitment to serving his patients which spans beyond a typical 9 to 5 day. It is not unusual for him to work long into the evening returning patients' calls, making sure their questions are answered and is available always for emergencies, including after routine "office hours."
I feel extremely fortunate to be working with Dr. Schaller.
Quite simply, I wouldn't know what to do without him as a partner in the battle against my complex medical challenges that were missed for a decades. I have made clear and profound progress when others were unable to help me. I also like that he is very serious about my medical needs, but can joke and be friendly at the same time.
