    I have encountered Dr. Shultz several times in the emergency department. The first time was when my daughter was an infant, and had to have a spinal tap. My husband and I were very distraught, as we weren’t allowed in the room when the procedure was done. Dr. Shultz was so calm and reassuring as he explained the procedure and why we couldn’t be in there. He had such the kindest eyes, and I knew that my daughter was in good hands.

    Thanks Dr. Shultz, you’ve always given me and my family excellent care each time we’ve been at the hospital.

    Best wishes and good health doctor.
