Thank you for your kind words. For some reason, ingrown nails tend to elicit a great deal of trepidation in some patients. However, we deal with this complaint on a daily basis, and the truth is, few patients have much difficulty with the procedure or experience much in the way of discomfort. I appreciate your writing a positive review, as it may encourage patients to deal with an ingrown nail early, before the problem becomes more significant. Gracias por su evaluación; la aprecio mucho.

Dr. Schumacher is the BEST! My family physician and the plastic surgeon she referred me to, had no idea what to do about the 'mass' on my heel. Fortunately Dr. Lih (another great Podiatrist) knew of someone that could help me - Dr. Schumacher. He tackled my difficult problem and did an absolutely amazing job. I can wear shoes again, do Yoga and walk again - pain free. Thanks to Dr. Schumacher, I have my life back! Can't praise him enough!

Thank you very much for your gracious review. Yours was an interesting tumor, and given the weight-bearing location, a somewhat complex and challenging surgical repair. I'm very pleased you're back functioning again and are happy with the result. Thanks for coming down to the coast to see us. Best regards, SAS

Very friendly staff. Dr Schumacher has a great sense of humour which puts you at ease. Definitely recommend him since prices tend to be the same among podiatrists so "bedside" manner counts for a lot.

Thank you for your kind review. Diabetic wound care is a specialty of ours, and helping to save limbs is probably the most rewarding part of my profession. Foot sores (or ulcers) have a high recurrence rate and can result in infections, amputations, and even premature death. This is a good place to remind all diabetics to come in regularly for preventative care, or at the first indication of a problem. Most problems are preventable and healable if addressed early. We'll always try to see you as soon as possible. SAS

This was my first time seeing a podiatrist and I was unsure of what to expect. Dr. Schumacher was super friendly, gave me a few options for treatment, most of which were very inexpensive. Best of all was his great sense of humor. Thanks doc!

My first visit to Dr. Schumaker was to fix a plantars wart that had bothered me for several years. I had gone to other doctors and tried several remedies but the problem still persisted . One visit to Dr. Schumacher and the problem went away forever. Several years later I had a problem with a bone spur . I taco several specialists and they said that nothing could be done and the only thing that would help was to be fitted with special shoes. Dr. Schumaker said that was true except that he was using a special technique called shockwave therapy that had a good chance of fixing my problem . He said the odds were about 80% that the bone spur could be broken down with this treatment. I said with those odds maybe you can fix my shoulder to which is been bothering me because of calcium buildup . He said will fix that too. Well three weeks later I was free of the bone spur and was able to ballroom dance and my shoulder was fixed that I could go back to playing baseball. In my opinion Dr. Schumacher is the best in the world.

Thank you very much for your review. We have pretty good results in treating even complicated warts. As for shockwave, in the right patients, it can seem like a miracle. I've been in the field for nearly 20 years and am internationally certified, so I know well what shockwave can do. I'm very pleased to hear you're doing well, and I appreciate the positive feedback.

I have been a patient with Dr. Schumacher for many years, and have always found him to be highly knowledgeable, extremely kind, funny and very patient! Also, I have never had to wait longer than five minutes for an appointment, and that was only once! He always takes the time to go over any of my concerns, and explains all options available to treat my condition (right foot bunion and other related foot problems). Everything is explained in a way that I will understand, and instead of addressing just the issue, he factors in what is best for my lifestyle. When I eventually knew that surgery would be necessary, he never rushed me towards that decision; in fact quite the opposite. Now that I am recovering from my successful surgery, I can also say that not only is Dr. Schumacher a great person, he is a fabulous surgeon too! The staff at his clinic are amazing as well; always so caring, polite and helpful. The clinic itself is clean, tidy and organized and the atmosphere is such a calm and positive one. On both a personal and professional level, I highly recommend Dr. Schumacher and his staff!

I had a serious ingrown toenail on my big toe on both feet. When I called his office his staff was super helpful and were able to give me a appointment the very next day. Prior to surgery he thoroughly explained all my options in an easily understandable way. During surgery he was funny and calmed me down and made the entire experience really easy for me. I would highly recommend Dr. Schumacher if you have a foot issue. Seems not only like a great guy but a great surgeon as well.

4 years I had serious foot pain which made me unable to go for walks with my wife and dog. I use Orthotics trying to ease up the pain. My every day life was leading me to multiple aches and pain from my hips down, until Dr Schumacher told me about shockwave therapy which I was willing to try to help alleviate the pain. You could not understand the seriousness what I was going through. It has been about 3 weeks from my last appointment and damm how good does my feet feel. I'm able to fly around work and going walking and not think of pain being anywhere. Thank you very much Dr Schumacher,.
