Ratings for Dr. J Schouls
I was referred to Dr. Schouls for an abdominal hysterectomy by Dr. Hoyer as Dr. Hoyer no longer does surgery, however, was fortunate to have Dr. Hoyer assist in the surgery as well. My family doctor jokingly referred to these two experts as the 'dream team'! After the surgery I understood why! Every doctor and nurse that has looked at the incision has raved about how excellent it looks, and my recovery has been amazing. I have to attribute this to their fine work. I won't comment on office wait times, except to say; perhaps some surgeries or emergency procedures take longer than expected. I'm just grateful they took their time on me, and apologize if it made them late for their office appointments afterward!
I went to see Dr Schouls and during my exam, she jammed her gloved fingers inside of me hard enough to make me bleed. I was sore for the rest of the day. She was quick to recommend an IUD "for heavy bleeding" which I was NOT having a problem with. Then she told me my procedure would be by laproscope, and I had made it clear I had had past issues with one during a surgery. I would NEVER see this Gyno again, and I wouldn't send anyone I know to her. I was told she was gentle. She wasn't at all. I was told she would give me a choice of how my surgery would go. She wasn't going to. If a doctor only does things one way...go the other way, meaning FAR AWAY from them.
I wen't to three doctors before Dr.Schouls who all told me nothing was wrong, accused me of making things up and didn't take time to listen to me. Dr.Schouls listened to me, understood and immediately gave me a diagnosis. She was fast and booked me for surgery and I have her to thank for catching my endometriosis in stage 1! As someone whose afraid of gynos, I found her patient, understanding, and kind. She made me feel so comfortable and took the time to explain everything to me- even before my surgery. I can't say I've had a doctor like her before, and I'm happy that I found her.
She's very late, informative and helpful. Not aware of alternatives to estrogen therapies that are more user friendly/healthy and safer to use and very quick to prescribe medications. However, she's more respectful than the usual arrogant doctor.
After dealing with a few doctors about a concerning issue, I finally found some confidence and support in Dr. Schoul. She really takes the time to make sure you understand what is taking place and answers any questions you have. I typically find majority of doctors to be arrogant, rushed, and unwilling to take the time to explain procedures and answer any questions thoroughly. Allow I was 30min late getting into my appointment, it didn't matter given the time she spent with me, the thoughtfulness and care she took, and reassurance that I was finally in good hands. She told me the exact date to expect a phone call. I couldn't be happier with the entire experience!
Dr. J Schouls is amazing and caring person, who you can talk to about anything you've concerns about. She takes time to explain things which I don't understand. Yes sometimes she's late but it's because she is on call or running late after LGH.
