Ratings for Dr. Charlotte L. Schuchart
This Dr. Is a Quack. She is quick to prescribe any pill and over medicates you and allows you to end up in hospital every other week. My mohter has a pill addiction and her best friend is Dr. Schuchart. my mother has been dependant on pills several years (about 30) and we have express concern to the dr. and given proof of the over doses s and it is documented by the paramedics that has been to my mothers about 2times a week, however Dr. Schuchart continues to just prescribe unneeded pain killers for heart problems that have formed because the over dosing of muscle relaxers and pain killers.
I have not had a good experience with Dr. Schuchart as my primary physician. She forgets things in your medical history, even specific procedures, and dismisses symptoms that could be serious, no matter how informed or concerned you are. She is quick to order labs but even if you are doing fine and don't need lab work done, she wants to send you to get blood drawn. I do not want to have a doctor whose sole aim is to milk as much money out of patients as possible by having them get lab work done unnecessarily or scheduling umpteen follow-up appointments. Furthermore, she is always running extremely behind. I have had to wait almost an hour in the office before being seen. She has also prescribed medications that cancel one another out (one can not be absorbed due to the other). Again, instead of addressing the core of a problem, she wants to put a bandaid on the symptoms. I would not recommend her.
Schuchart lacks the confidence you would expect from an experienced doctor. She is mousy and nervous in her demeanor most likely because she doesn't seem to know what she is doing.I would prefer a doctor who knows how to diagnose and treat medical problems and Schuchart doesn't know how to diagnose and treat the most basic of medical problems even with the help of her laptop. Schuchart comes in with her laptop so that she can look things up such as medications and possible causes for your symptoms. It's as though she knows as much as anyone who didn't go to medical school who tries to self diagnose by searching webMD. I had a minor skin rash that I sometimes get when the seasons change.I even told her what my last doctor prescribed so it doesn't get much easier than that and she wanted to complicate things by sending me to a dermatologist. Maybe her medical knowledge maxes out at the sniffles and anything more complicated than that requires a specialist. I've asked for a new doctor!
Dr. Schuchart was my doctor in Elburn Il. She is now near Fort Dodge, Iowa. She was the best doc I've ever had. Very caring, very smart, gets down to business. My husband even went to her. She's a vegatarian, my hubby would tell her he ate a pound of steak for dinner...she would tell him if he must to choose lean cuts of meat. She has a great sense of humor and was not bothered at all by my husbands ribbing about meat. Great listener. Returns calls quickly and looks things up if she doesn't know. Not afraid to order tests. Her staff was always happy. She is very pleasent and personal.
