Testimonials

"Dr. Schuhknecht helped me lose 110 lbs and saved my life. I was diabetic, taking 4 insulin shots a day, on oxygen full time, and in a wheelchair. Now I'm back to my normal life, with the help of support and counseling offered by the Weight Loss Center. The Weight Loss Center is wonderful."

"To say that Dr. Schuhknecht gave me my life back would be an understatement. He is so professional, and so kind. I can talk with him no matter the concern, and he listens without judging. Sometimes I think I disappoint him by not quite doing all I should, but he just keeps encouraging me! I can live again because of him."

"I really appreciate Dr. Michael Schuhknecht. He was so patient with me and talked me through everything to make sure I wasn't scared. He came in twice from home in his bedclothes because I was in so much pain so he could personally review my test results. That's above and beyond!"

"Dr. Schuhknecht came in before surgery and answered all of me and my mother's questions. He was very patient with my mother; she had a lot of questions. After surgery he came by twice in recovery to check on me. He spent quite a bit of time talking with my mother."

"Dr. Michael Schuhknecht not only took care of me physically, but also mentally. He listened to me. He made sure I understood everything. He was amazing. Some doctors are not very personable, but he is a real person. He joked with me. He fought for me."
