Ratings for Dr. Matthew M. Schultzel
Dr. Schultzel performed my colonoscopy at Scripps Encinitas Hospital. It was painless and easy. Dr. Schultzel is very comforting and very throughout. I didn’t feel a thing! I have now sent my entire family to him. Too bad he doesn’t do family deals!!!
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!
Dr. Schultzel performed a robotic hernia repair after a failed laparoscopic repair at UCSD. I had very little pain and his staff were very easy to deal with. Dr. "Matt" as everyone calls him has a warm bedside manner and is easily reached for questions. I'm sending my brother to him for his hernia.
Dr. Schultzel saved my life, literally....... and preformed an emergency Ileostomy on me in April. I found great comfort in him during a very scary health scare. I really appreciated his expert advise and surgical abilities and was lucky to have him recently reverse my Ileostomy three weeks ago. The surgery was done at Scripps La Jolla and Dr Schultzel was constantly in communication with me on my treatment plan both pre and post surgery. His staff is also amazing - very compassionate and responsive. I highly recommend Dr. Schultzel and his wonderful team!
