Ratings for Dr. Peter H. Schur
I love Dr. Schur. After being diagnosed with Lupus by 3 drs, Dr. Schur carefully read my tests and notes. He gave a careful exam and asked me lots of questions and was listened. I came prepared and handed him a short summary of my year long battle of feeling horrible. He concluded I didn't have Lupus, but a low iron deficiency. He put me on a 6 month regimen to recover from the horrible drugs and also gain badly needed iron stores, he saved my life. He's the only doctor who listened carefully and didn't assume the doctor before him got it right. He knows Lupus and he knows what Lupus isn't.
Saw Dr. Schur based on his reputation as a lupus specialist. Left VERY frustrated. Felt I was not listened to, nor were my maladies truly address. All was attributed to a "sleep disorder." Excuse me? If I was not in so much pain, I could sleep! Seeking a new doctor. On a personal note, I think he is a nice fellow, but his bedside manner was cool at best. He spent more time addressing my medical records to the med student in the room than he did me.
I have been seeing Dr. Schur for over 20 years.Yes, he can have an attitude--get over it. He will give you your life back if you listen to him. Yes, it is hard to get past his cold intellect, but behind the massive brain is a very caring knowledgeable man.
Previous reviewers' descriptions describe my experience with this doctor perfectly. Arrogant, unhelpful, seemingly distrustful of patients - a strange and very frustrating experience. Perhaps resting on his laurels after too many years at an HMS institution.
Didn't really get the answers I was hoping for... I saw Dr. Schur because of his interest in CFS but I found that he really didn't understand the illness. webmd.com is more helpful. I'm not sure how he can be unaware of the key indicators of the disease but his answer to the overwhelming world of crap that started for me a year ago was to sleep better at night and exercise. Durrr..., if it was that easy I would do that. I should add that prior to being ill I ran 60 minutes a day/5 days a week. Trust me, if I could be active I WOULD. Waste of my time.
I found him in the first part of my first visit to be curt, unsympathetic, argumentative and at times insulting.He had difficulty reading the transcripts from previous doctors in the proper order. In a word I found him quite arrogant. It was only after his physical exam that he believed I was telling the truth about the maladies from which I suffer. I will continue to see doctor Schur because of his reputation. Only time will tell.
