I had a very bad experience with Dr. Gary Schuster. I have had chronic pain in my legs for many years. When I was in my grad school the reason for the pain was diagnosed by a sports medicine doctor in Phoenix . At that point in time the pain was bearable and I did not have the money to go for a surgery.
The pain gradually got worse and I went to Dr Gary Schuster here in Seattle with the prior diagnosis and tests. Dr Schuster made me undergo multiple more tests which cost me thousands of dollars while my pain increased.
Finally when all the tests confirmed that the diagnosis by the Doctor in Phoenix was right , he mentioned that he was not specialized to do the surgery and that he would recommend another doctor who could do this surgery. He assured me that he had a great relationship with this doctor and that he would be able to get him to see me quickly.
This “Recommended” surgeon who by the way had poor online reviews could only see me after 3 months and when calls and messages to Dr Schuster went unanswered, I went to another doctor to get my surgery. Stay away!! from this guy unless you want to spend a fortune on useless clinical visits and tests.
