    Dr. Schamess is fantastic. He listens first! He always makes sure he understands what I'm asking and is very thorough with his explanations and/or recommendations. I like, too, that Dr. Schamess makes himself available via the OSU MyChart portal; he always follows up to lab results and any additional questions I may have post appointment.
