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.

He has a genuine concern for my health and well-being. He is easy to talk to and I can tell him things that maybe different than how other people would experience them.

I feel confident in his knowledge and recommendations. He listens and cares for my "EVERY NEED"/ encourages me to do the things to better my condition. I like that he also considers home remedies as an alternate when needed. His staff is just as courteous and caring, very attentive and helpful

Dr. Shultz and his team always take time to listen to me and come up with the best plan for my health at that time. I also see a neurologist and they are working together to completely diagnose my condition. PMG is the best in my book.

I am very happy with my PCP, but sometimes he is so anxious to help that he provides an answer before i'm finished with my prepared (short and succinct, for this very reason) description of the problem.

06/05/2017
My only complaint is that when I have prescription questions and call the office to have someone call back, I never recieve that call. In addition, when a pharmacy calls to get clarification on a prescription, which happens often, they never recieve a timely call. I'm usually waited at the pharmacy for a response so I can leave with the prescription. There have been many typos or dosage, quantity mistakes on prescriptions over the years. It's a joke of sorts when I go to the office. It's not so funny any longer. Right now I've been waiting on a retire phone call after 3 attempts with still no response. One of the prescriptions requires a pre-authorization and cannot get it filled until that is done. As of today, this has still not been done despite 3 phone calls and the office changing the prescription to a 90 day instead of a 30 day. The prescription cannot be filled until they contac t [...]for a pre-authorization. The girls in the office need to respond to my phone calls so my concerns are addressed first hand, not after interpitation from the receptionist that first receive the initial call. This is getting be be a real concern of mine and need to be addressed. I like Dr. Schultz, but the lack of response from his staff need to be remedied. Addtionally, I have called [...] and they have told me that the doctors office needs to call to get the pre-authorization. I cannot do it. [...]

Due to [...] the FDA my narcotic pain relievers, that I have NEEDED and taken for years, has been reduced significantly. This has left me in far worse pain than I needed to be. [...] Dr. Schultz, however, is doing a fine job - as much as he is allowed to do, anyway.
