Dr. Schuler was introduced to the specialty of radiation oncology through his mother’s experience as a survivor of both oral cancer and breast cancer. He witnessed the profound impact that a compassionate, patient-centered approach can have during the treatment and survivorship phases of cancer care, and this shapes his own approach to the practice of radiation oncology. He enjoys educating patients about their diagnoses so that they can participate in a shared decision making process and feels that this is an important part of optimizing his patients outcomes.
Dr. Schuler has experience treating a broad spectrum of malignancies and has a special interest in head and neck cancers, as well as the use of stereotactic radiation in the treatment of early stage lung cancer, prostate cancer and metastatic disease. He is committed to integrating advanced technologies and novel research into his practice to improve outcomes for his patients.
Dr. Schuler is married and he and his wife have a newborn baby. When not working, they enjoy spending time outdoors and have a particular interest in cycling, hiking and skiing.
What Patients Say
I have been very impressed with Dr. Schuler’s performance throughout my treatment. He provided thorough explanations of what the treatment would entail, outlined the risks, compared this with other treatments I had heard of and answered all other questions I had. I was at ease when I started the treatment process. The process went as he had patiently explained. I have high regard for him and all the staff I dealt with at Compass Oncology. – Google

Compassionate Radiation Oncologist. Dr. Schuler has been treating me for lung cancer and has always gone beyond expectations. He takes the time to show me my progress on his computer comparing the latest scans with the original diagnostic scan which has been very informative giving me a better sense of what is really going on with my treatment. I would give him more than 5 stars if possible! Thanks Dr. Schuler! – Vitals
Dr. Schuler was great. I had a difficult case for radiation, and I came to him for a second opinion. He thoroughly and patiently explained his recommendation, answering all my questions and never making me feel like I was stepping on anyone's toes by speaking to a second doctor. He really helped me make a tough decision, and I'm very grateful to him for that. I would feel very confident recommending him to anyone. ---Healthgrades
