SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Schillinger and med. student Tom provided phenomenal care during my visit. Tom was very thorough in his examination and presentation of symptoms. Dr. Schillinger is clearly a fantastic attending who values teaching! She even pulled up a diagram on the computer to help me more clearly visualize the problem that had brought me in for the visit. Dr. Schillinger took extra time to answer my many questions about medications and follow up care. Very pleased and well cared for during this visit!
