01/04/14 5 4 5 5 Dr Schaller is compassionate, a skilled diagnostician and well versed on the most current research. He treats you like a friend, gives you a great deal of useful information and offers treatments that work!! He was concerned that I had frequent debilitating sinus headaches that were caused by chronic rhinosinusitis. I had been to many specialists including ENT and allergists, but got no relief. Dr. Schaller told me that my chronic sinus infection had a biofilm which sheltered those nasty bugs from antibiotics. He told me to swab the inside of my nostrils as far up as possible with clovanol. I did this in the morning and the evening for 2 weeks and the result was almost miraculous. For the first time in 5 years I was able to blow my nose. I have been free of sinus headaches for 4 weeks! I am thankful that I met Dr. Schaller!! He has changed my life for the better.

04/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Schaller has helped me totally regain my health and cure me of tick borne infection complex. Prior to being treated by Dr. Schaller, no one could figure out what was wrong with me. However, Dr. Schaller knew exactly what to do. After starting treatment with Dr. Schaller, I was able to start law school. Throughout law school I continued to become healthier. I am now healthy, have a great law practice, and have begun natural bodybuilding again. I highly recommend this physician and healer.  Respond

20/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Schaller has been a blessing to me and my family. I was very ill with tick infections and had been evaluated by numerous doctors with no known cause. Dr. Schaller correctly diagnosed me in just one phone call and quickly called in medications and started my treatment. It has now been one year later and I have made unbelievable improvements and almost feel normal again. Dr. Schaller has saved my life. Sgt. Lyme  Respond

09/04/13 5 5 5 5 Very helpful to my wife who had been all but abandoned by the blinkered local medical personnel. Dr. Schaller was willing to drive 3 hours to see my wife in a house call not once but twice because she was too ill to travel.

20/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Schaller knows his stuff. I was being treated at the VA medical Center in Miami if you want to call it that. The doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with me so they just chalked it up to stress. My symptoms were getting worse: confusion, depersonalization, memory loss, headaches, dizziness..... I was referred to Dr. Schaller and he was like a breath of fresh air. He immediately knew what I was suffering from and we started the treatment. He is very caring, knowledgeable, and the only doctor I know that will call you within 5 minutes of you emailing him. He is very passionate about his work and it shows in every aspect of this treatment, I'm so grateful I found him!!!  Respond

15/10/12 4 5 5 5 I have suffered with what was originally diagnosed as Interstitial Cystitis for many years. After seeing numerous physicians over a period of 20 years, I learned of and consulted Dr. Schaller because of his reknown and expertise in an area that I had started suspecting was the root cause of my condition. A personal consult by phone gave me the reassurance I needed that it was worth traveling from Canada to the U.S. to visit with him. After reviewing my multitude of existing lab test results Dr. Schaller recommended additional tests that had never been done before to help round out the picture of what was going on. His knowledge, thoroughness and evidence-based treatment recommendations thus far have not only given me marked improvement after only one month, but they've given me HOPE for a full recovery for the first time. Although I still have a long way to go I finally have a sense that I am not alone with no answers. Thank you so very much Dr. J.!  Respond

15/02/12 5 5 5 5 Dr Schaller is the "Best" doctor I have ever seen. Thanks to him I am alive today. He has literally saved my life twice. Lucky for me he did not tell me "it was all in my head" as a lot of other doctors did before I found Dr. J. Not only is he a "genius" medically, he is also the most caring and compassionate person I have ever met. If you are looking for a GREAT doctor your search is over. He truly is "The Best".  Respond

16/01/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. Schaller's knowledge surpasses any doctor I have ever treated with. He just does not give up on a patient. I was sick for 12 years, the last year almost being bedbound. No other doctor could uncover what caused my ill health. I am now functioning like a healthy person again, enjoying life, thanks to Dr Schaller. This man is dedicated to helping people and savings lives. I highly recommend Dr Schaller especially if you have not been properly diagnosed and still are sick. Two others in my family now see Dr Schaller and we all love the caring physician he is. Dr Schaller has given me back my life and health and I will always be grateful to him.  Respond

22/05/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Schaller was very willing to work within my budget and was the only doctor who accurately diagnosed and helped me. I had seen no less than 20+ over the last 7 years since I became ill. Thanks to him am now healthy. Am so grateful there are still doctor's like him who do not give up on difficult patients who are ill. We need more like him.  Respond

29/03/11 5 4 5 5 Brilliant doctor. Wonderful with my children and myself. Significant improvements in relatively short amount of time especially compared to the years of sickness and number of misdiagnosis. Office staff is both pleasant and efficient. I would recommend his expertise to anyone.  Respond

19/07/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Schaller is "the Best" MD I have ever seen. His knowledge and tenacity to get to the root of your medical problems is unsurpassed. He takes as much time as necessary to diagnose your symptoms and will not stop until he has found an answer. I am living proof. He literally saved my life when other MD's left me hopeless. If you have medical issues that no one has the answers for, he is the man to see. You will definitely be treated with respect and compassion. The medical profession should use him as a model of what a Doctor is supposed to be.  Respond

27/01/10 5 5 5 5 After YEARS of being treated for other medical problems on top of having Lyme which we didnt know, doctors kept telling me it is because of your medical problems,there isn't much we can do, I am not sure why etc. Not even trying to go outside the box just in case it was something else. So we started going outside the box and found Dr Schaller who saw us IMMEDIATELY without even knowing my medical history background. He has been treating me for about 7 months now and there is a BIG improvement. I went from not living at all & having no life to living again. I still have a long way to go but feel that his knowledge and helpfulness will get me where I need to be which is to live again!  Respond

01/01/10 5 5 5 5 Only doctor who was adequately able to diagnose and treat my children and me. Saw at least a dozen other doc's - most LLMD's (supposedly). Spent a fortune and they did not treat the co-infections or properly test for them. Also knew nothing about MSH and HLA or how important these tests are along with a whole host of others. My children might be dead were it not for this doctor. Instead they are healthy, functional and doing well in school. No one ever even believes I had this dreaded disease... which went undiagnosed for over 20 years...  See Responses

25/05/09 4 5 5 5 I w/gladly share that Dr Schaller saved my life after traveling & seeing over 55 Doctors with answers like it out of my expertise or its in your head. He sat down with me for 3 hrs, and knew what was wrong with me(with blood work) Also with such compassion he believed it was worth checking my wife to find out if I gave her my disease (during my exam he went over my body with a marker identifying indicators). He has dedicated his life mission where so many other so called doctors fall so very short not giving you any time or consideration he will respond to your needs any time of day/night. After 18 yrs I found DR Schaller- if I did not find him I would be dead. I'm a father of two and a husband of 25 yrs. My wife and I both owe him more than words can describe. But I will say this, the rest of the medical world should learn from him-his compassion & caring. He is out for your well being no matter how much time it takes not the normal 10 min & out the door. RLC P.S. not enough space?  Respond

30/06/08 5 5 2 5 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. He is very arrogant but many of the other doctors I have seen were arrogant with no results to back them up.  See Responses
