Biography

Dr. George Schultz decided to become a medical provider because he enjoys science and caring for people. Getting to know his patients and helping them navigate through their health challenges are what he enjoys most about being a provider.

“I try to make sure people get the best health care available,” he says. His philosophy of care is integrating whole-person health through healthy living and evidence-based medicine.

Dr. Schultz did his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University and his medical degree from University of Health Science in Kansas City, Mo. He completed his internal medicine residency at Tucson General Hospital in Arizona. In addition to providing primary care for his patients, Dr. Schultz has additional training in caring for individuals with HIV and provides support through all stages of the disease. He also offers consultations and treatment for individuals with Hepatitis C.

In his free time Dr. Schultz enjoys spending time with his family, running, and all the benefits of living in beautiful Southern Oregon.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schultz for 14 years and when i moved 170 miles away 6 years ago i didn't change doctors.I have never experienced the level of care that is given to me by Dr. Schultz anywhere else and just thinking about one day having to change doctors brings on anxiety and panic.

08/09/2016
when you call to see the dr. with an urgent matter and the office says they will have some one call you and they don't call and you have to call them back the next day and the next day and it ends up taking you a week to see a dr. is kind of ridiculous. I had a really bad swelled painful [...] and didn't see the dr. for two more days. I called on Monday and didn't get in till Friday. Person I talked to on the phone early in the week suggested that I go to the ER or someplace else. Our dr. is very good and we like him a lot but getting help over the phone or a call back for me or my wife from the office generally sucks. If they say we will call back that day they should call back and they should call the number you give them.
100

08/09/2016
allways ready to give you the information needed to help you make a good decision

I think the Dr is too busy. So, he doesn't have the time to spend with his patients. I feel like he gives me another pill and sends me on my way. I don't think he's curious about what's wrong with me.

You guys really try.
