Patient Reviews

September 19, 2022
The doctor was really great and understood what I was there for, and answered my questions. His nurse was really great also. I've already recommended him to my sister and family.

We were very happy with our visit with Dr. Shatzmiller. He listened to all of our concerns regarding our mother and explained her stroke to us, the cause and how to try and prevent further strokes. We would highly recommend him to friends and family.

Dr, Shatzmiller has been tremendous asset to my care. I have endured years of seeing doctors who deal only on a distant level and don't pursue the actual reasons for some of my symptoms. When being bypassed by some doctors, either by their lack of knowledge, or uncaring attitude is a waste of time. I have to say that Dr. Shatzmiller has been the "BEST" doctor I have ever experienced.
August 31, 2022
Hi. (PHI removed). I appreciated the experience with Dr. Shatzmiller. I think he was outstanding. He did listen. He paid attention. He absorbed. He explained. So phenomenal customer service, besides being a phenomenal physician. Thank you.
August 10, 2022
The doctor is very kind, very efficient, I love his work, very patient. He explains everything very well, many times with the very attentive girls, I love it and every time I have my visit, thank you very much for having such professional and personal doctors.
August 08, 2022
He asked if I would like to be referred to acupuncture and Physical Therapy I said definitely as my regular Dr doesn't unless I suggest it. This was perfect and he is so patient and listens to me, to find the right cure for my headache that I've had for a year from my skull fracture from a fall. He even told me to tell my chiropractor to stop cracking my neck since it's sore.
August 03, 2022
It took 4 months to get an appointment with this doctor, my symptoms subsided by the time I got to see him. We need to make better experience for patients trying to make appointments when they need it. They also need to answer the calls sooner than having to wait 45 minutes to get to an operator.

I just want to say this is my first experience with a medical Zoom call with a new doctor. I have not seen. So it was a good first experience. I was Chagrined at how long it took to get the zoom appointment with him. And I would like to have less of a delay between a recommendation until the actual visit with the doctor. Anyway, thank you. I appreciate the opportunity for the feedback.
May 18, 2022
Dr. Shatzmiller gave me a diagnosis and told me about support groups. He is referring me to (name removed), who specializes in the disease I have. I am extremely grateful. Thank you, Dr. Shatzmiller, for being so knowledgable and caring. Five stars!

Such a nice down to earth man and very knowledgeable yet explained things simply. Spent a great amount of time with me and made me feel better about my medical evaluation ...
May 09, 2022
We did have to wait a few months to see Dr. Shatzmiller but it was worth the wait. He is a very compassionate, caring, and gentle doctor. Very good listener and he takes his time with his patients. We were not rushed in any way. You can tell he really cares and wants to help improve the patients life. He explained everything clearly and the whole process of the importance of getting the proper tests. He is very knowledgeable in his field and a very good listener.

Staff pleasant & respectful. Clean facility. First time visit, doctor spent quality time with my 92 year-old mother. Humorously put us at ease. Answered our questions and explained thoughtfully using relevant examples.
April 28, 2022
Your system is so automated that I am very unhappy with trying to communicate. With your office. I love Dr. Shatzmiller but every time I call it takes like 20 minutes. If I leave a message. And do the proper things. I'm frequently don't get a call back. So you are have less personal contact with me as a patient as far as the office. So, you're just too automated. It's me. Thank you.
April 25, 2022
Excellent care, this very friendly doctor, the excellent doctor listened to me, I felt completely satisfied when he asked all his questions and everything he advised me. I congratulate them for having that staff and especially the doctor, I congratulate them because he is a kind person and professional is humble, thank you.
April 25, 2022
The provider was a good listener, great educator and thorough (didn't feel rushed out). His recommendations were in line with my individual needs and concerns. He did not make me feel like just another patient with a medical complaint. Instead, made me feel like my overall health and well-being is important.

Dr. Shatzmiller is honestly one of the best doctors that I have ever been to. He is courteous. He's caring he sits and listens to you. I mean listens to you and then he gives you options on what he believes that. You know, he could do to help you. He is a wonderful doctor. There's nothing he can do to to make himself any better. The office is great.

We loved how well Dr Shatzmiller communicated with the Patient. When suffering from Alz, the Patient needs to feel warmth and comfort. And to understand they are truly heard even when its hard to get the point across. Dr Shatzmiller was amazing.

I have been a patient with Dr. Shatzmiller and [name removed] office for approximately 4 years and have been receiving care and treatment for severe migraines.

I always feel that I am in safe, knowledgeable hands.

I feel secure in the knowledge that i'am cared for by such an attentive through physician that answers all my questions and explains things in a way I can understand
January 27, 2022
I don't like surveys because you're calling about a service that just happened and you want me to provide positive feedback mostly. How can I provide positive feedback when I just was seen by this person for the very first time? It's not right to do a survey. Thank you. Bye.
January 26, 2022
My adult daughter who's the psychologist and I went to doctor, the doctor calling about, it's such a long name Shatzmiller we weren't, we were not just impressed. We were blown away by the devotion what, this is a portion you provided for us and by the layman's terms to describe what was medically occurring with me, and I would definitely go to him again, although I hope I won't need you and I would recommend and very enthusiasticly to others thank you.

January 12, 2022
I've been to a few doctors and I always wonder if I got full service. But with this doctor I felt that I had very good service, and interest in my house. You know, which is very surprising to me because I don't get that very often. And I'm very thankful that I found a doctor who is willing to help me feel better, and get better. And I appreciate that very much. Thank you.

This is [PHI removed], the advocate to [PHI removed], who [PHI removed], who is my brother. [Name removed] at the call center was extremely rude. However, I have spoke with management and they've called I've spoken to miss [name removed], the (INAUDIBLE) and she is handling the situation. So I am grateful that someone will be able, you know, to speak to [name removed] and how she handles customers, as they are calling and especially those who are advocates on behalf of someone else and threatening to cancel an appointment without getting all the situation out and trying to help and assist the patient advocate or even the patient for that matter. So I am grateful to miss [name removed] and the other

Dr.Shatzmiller made himself very comfortable to talk to. I believe he listened with the purpose to find out reasons why I needed his help, which was truly appreciated. The office was clean and orderly and his staff was prompt to give me the paperwork I needed it so I could leave.
November 29, 2021
I only have to give the doctor a 10. He... one of the best I've known in a long time. And I appreciate him and I'll always recommend him and your crew to anyone that needs help.
November 17, 2021

It was a great first visit with doctor Ron, but we did have it set up originally in October but there was an emergency and they needed to reschedule the appointment for a month later, I understand things happen but we had waited 3 months already . We will be seeing him again next year.

Doctor was terrific.
October 15, 2021
Dr. Shatzmiller and Dr. Su. Very friendly and professional. The Staff very nice.
October 14, 2021
The doctor answered my question thoroughly. If he would have spent a little bit more time reviewing my medical records, that would have been helpful. He would have not called me back after the fact letting me know he overlooked some items, but it was greatly appreciated that he still took the time to call me back and discuss what he had overlooked and we'll be doing further testing. I think next time reviewing records before he sees a patient would be ideal.
