Being prepared with list of questions helps doctor to be efficient and accomplish my goals of visit. Dr. Shultz is pleasant and accommodating which I appreciate. His assistant, Rebecca, is respectful, helpful and kind.

this was a annual physical. Dr cancel a prescription without talking to me. overall the exam was very brief, less than through and did not cover questions or discuss about all my medical conditions. I will be asking for a different doctor.

I am very happy with my Dr Shultz, he is always patient and he listens patiently. He is thorough and will refer when needed. This is the first time in my life I have completely trusted a doctor and feel safe and confident to heed his medical direction. I truly believe he does have my best interest at heart and wants the best care for me as his patient.I have always been an advocate of my own health, so it was not easy for me to get to a place where I just needed to trust a doctor to care for my health concerns. I trust doctor Shultz and I trust who he would refer me to.My thanks and appreciation go to Dr Shultz and the entire Legacy Firwood team.

provider has no tact or bedside manner. needs to take patients concerns seriously even if he feels that they are not necessary or warranted. I feel awful for the training physician to be learning from him...I hope she can learn what not to do.

as a diabetic I'm confused about the new updated information concerning no longer taking my diabetic medication or checking my blood sugar on a daily basis. After being told for several years to check my blood sugar regularly & take my medication faithfully it's difficult to just stop because of new guidelines. I don't feel the doctor took the time to help me understand this big change. I like him overall. My long time provider recently retired so this was my first visit with this doctor. I have many health problems & have to go to many specialists so I appreciate having a doctor take the time to help me understand any changes. I am older [age deleted] so it's harder to grasp change. I will go back for my 3 month checkup.

This was my first visit with this Doctor since my Doctor retired. He was very judgmental on my medications. I went to the appointment feeling emotionally unbalanced and asked for a second antidepressant. instead he cut my antidepressant amount in half, starting immediately. I will be changing to a new doctor at a different office ASAP. I think he would be difficult for me to work with

Dr. Schulz and his MA Rebecca were extremely thoughtful and caring. My visit was in regards to [comment deleted to protect privacy] but I never felt judged as a person at any point during the appointment. That provided tremendous relief and I know I can trust my providers with any concerns I may have.

I am sure he a good Doctor, but I felt he did not hear my concerns. I do not have allergies. I have been sick for a month with a cold and sinus infection. My ears are still plugged. I cough each day.

I have never felt so comfortable talking about my weight. Most providers are quick to make me feel bad about my weight, but Dr. Schulz has never pressured me or made me feel bad about my weight which made me feel that he was someone I could be open with about it.

This was an initial appointment with a new primary care physician. I felt the entire staff did a good job of trying to learn of my medical history.

I was asked to come in to see my DR since I hadn't been seen for awhile for my thyroid medicine. My DR was out of town so I saw another provider in the office. All he did was ask a couple questions about my meds and then sent me to get blood work done. I could have done blood work early before work at Legacy Mt Hood Hospital. This appointment was a waste of time!

the student nurse practitioner was very attentive and asked questions and seemed to care. Dr Schulz came in for about a minute prescribed a standard medicine. didn't talk about any concerns and left. I will say that was unusual for him and maybe other things were going on. I've decided to switch PcPs to a female nurse practitioner. please give the NP and the ma's a compliment. they were amazing.

I have always enjoyed this office staff and the care I've been given. I have been seeing Steve Nicholson for almost 30 years and I will miss him. I look forward to establishing a patient/Dr. relationship with Dr. Schulz. my ONLY complaint is that I hate to be weighed every time I go in, whether I have a cut or am sick. sometimes when I've 'passed' on bring weighed, the nurse gets a little huffy and one even a tad bit snotty. Never Dr. Nicholsons nurses but some others when I've had to be seen by another Dr. or NP. I maintain my weight, is normal but I hate weighing fully loaded with clothes and shoes. A mental issue here I know but I truly dread it. My only complaint. Should be optional.

He was very rude. didn't tell me he was going to have me have a pneumonia shot and the nurse came in to give it to me explain to her I didn't want it but she basically told me that the doctor recommended it and I needed to have it. I didn't have pneumonia I've never had problems with pneumonia. I don't not wish to see this doctor ever again. we been going to this office for years but will NOT be seeing this doctor anymore.

I may change doctors as I don't have a very high confidence in Dr. Schulz. On one occasion last year, he wanted to double my statin drug dose because of protocol. My cholesterol was within normal range, so I declined to do so. On the next visit last year, he noted how great my cholesterol was. He is easy to get into see fast, but I wonder why he often has next day appointments available when others in his office do not.

This doctor is young and I came away with the feeling that he wasn't concerned about dealing with an elderly patient and was not going to live much longer anyway, so why be concerned? He canceled one of my medications without consulting me.

I transferred my care from Dr. Nicholson to Dr. Shulz (due to Nicholson retiring ) and was very pleased with Dr. Shulz and his assistant. The entire staff is very kind and pleasant. The phlebotomst was very nice too! Give everyone a gold star for their hard work and great care!

When I made my appointment , I was clear that there were things on , My Health email or chart that needs to be done other than my medication refill . All I received was my blood pressure checked and my medication was refilled. Two days after my visit I get an email from My Health reminding me of these things and I had just paid a $25 visit charge just for my blood pressure checked so this did upset me that no one even looked at the chart or whatever it is that's being looked at. I believe there are 3 things that needed to be done. Maybe I should have reminded someone but I thought I had done that with the phone appointment and than being checked in.

i felt the doctor should have looked in my ears, throat and nose and felt the glands in my neck. Since I had stated I had an earache and sore throat fora week. He only listened to my lungs to give my an inhaler and coughing pills which didn't work. My regular doctor know I have had a lung issue in the past but unfortunately he was available that day. He was very nice.
