Great call, doc!
Shannon Clinic pediatrician Doug Schultz, MD, always liked baseball but had no idea it would wind up being such a big part of his life. Years ago, Dr. Schultz attended one of his son's Little League games. The assigned umpire didn't show. A call went out through the stands, "Is there an umpire in the house?" "No," came the reply, "but we do have a doctor!"
Dr. Schultz was pressed into service and realized he loved being part of the game. For over 20 years, Dr. Schultz has been calling Little League, high school and college games.
When Dr. Schultz isn't calling balls and strikes, he's caring for young patients at Shannon. This allows him to do what he likes to do best—making sick children better.
Originally from San Antonio, he attended medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and did his residency at Texas Children's Hospital. Dr. Schultz has been at Shannon since 1980, and he is now the chairman of the pediatrics department. He chose Shannon because it has a great medical community. He chose San Angelo because he wanted his kids to grow up with small-town values.
We are proud to share the stories of our physicians and staff, who deliver exceptional quality and are devoted to providing the best possible care for our patients. They are also a vital part of our community and are proud to call San Angelo home.
