"I take a holistic approach to the patient care and his or her chief complaint. There are many issues that can contribute to one's GI problem, some tend to originate outside of the gastrointestinal tract. I want to hear the whole story from the patient so I can see a complete picture and provide a correct diagnosis and precise treatment."
Dr Shulik assisted me while I was at Mountainside Hospital for an emergency gallbladder removal surgery. (Excuse my medical ignorance as I explain..) I had a gallstone stuck in my bile duct and Dr Shulik was brought in to assist in that specific component of my surgery. (ERCP?) I was 11.5 weeks pregnant at the time and there was concern in using an X-ray for this procedure. Dr Shulik did extensive research and was able to successfully remove my stone using ultrasound which had little to no risk to the baby. He also arranged his schedule with the other surgeon to conduct his procedure at the same time as my laparoscopic cholecystectomy so I only had to go under anesthesia once... also better for baby. Unfortunately, I was at the hospital for 3 days before I knew my full diagnosis and was given insight as to why my surgery kept being delayed. I was quite frustrated and Dr Shulik visited to not only educate me - he literally drew out a diagram of my issue and explained the precautions they were taking to protect me and my baby. He is thoughtful and patient. I have OCD hypochondriasis and have never felt more comfortable and medically confident then when under the care/supervision of Dr Shulik. Again, I’m not very medically savvy, but Dr Shulik is brilliant. Highly recommend.
