My legs feel better than I can ever remember them feeling. I don't have the heavy feeling and all the swelling I used to have. I feel like I am walking on air! Thank you for all that you have done. My life is so much better!”

Dr. Shuler and Staff, you are a blessing. Thanks to you I can testify that as of today I still have my leg. You never gave up on me and for that I am forever thankful... God Bless!”

When my son was on the verge of losing not only his leg but his life, you were there for us, you pulled him through. There are no words, just, God bless you Dr. Shuler.”

I recommend Dr. Shuler and his whole team for all they have done to help my husband’s injury. My husband had already been to a vascular surgeon and was told that there was nothing that could be done, that he would have to just learn to live with it. Thanks to Dr. Shuler he's almost back to his old self. I'm so glad we met you.”
