Dr. Schultzel put my colostomy back together after my bowel exploded at another hospital. He was able to do the while thing laparoscopically! I had very little pain and stayed only 2 days in the hospital. He is a saint! His staff very good. Dr. Schultzel has a warm heart and I felt like he is well trained. I was told before by another surgeon that I couldn't be put back together laparoscopically, but Dr. Schultzel proved that doctor wrong!!! I would recommend him to everyone!"
Dr. Schultzel saved my life. I had an appendicitis, and he was on-call the day I came to the ER. I was so lucky to have him! He removed my appendix, making only one small cut below my belly button to do it. I can't even see the incision now, and I feel great! I'm already back to surfing and ocean swimming, and I'm preparing for a triathalon. I couldn't have made it through the ordeal without Dr. Schultzel's warm bedside manner, which kept me calm and optimistic that I'd recover. He is a skilled surgeon and a really nice guy. Highly recommend!"

I had next to no pain after surgery and did not have a very long hospital stay. My scar is nearly invisible! His staff is compassionate and easy to work with. I'm am cured from colon cancer cancer, thanks to Dr. Schultzel."
