03/01/09 4 4 3 5 My experience with Dr., Schultz was NOT good. He was indifferent, arrogant and casual. I was in my early 80's at the time. His intended reassuring words prior to performing an inguinal hernia correction were ."Nothing to it. I'll have you in and out of surgery in 15 minutes". He probably did, but he used no webbing in the compromised area and the hernia erupted again shortly thereafter.. Also when I returned a few weeks after his surgery because I was still in excruciating pain his advice was "go home and take Motrin for a week", not just indifferent but insulting. He had just prior to my experience with him, received accolades at a testimonial banquet. Had I been amonmg those present, I would NOT have agreed with those who believe him to be such a marvelous surgeon.
