My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

We tend to take our health for granted. We live hectic lives, distracted by all the things that demand our attention while not paying enough attention to our most important possession – our health. We push ourselves harder and harder, presuming we will be just as healthy tomorrow as we were yesterday while doing very little to maintain ourselves. 

Most agree that the best way to maintain your car is not to drive it until it doesn’t run anymore, and then see if it can be fixed. This is unfortunately a very common approach to taking care ourselves; many of us take no time to reflect on our health until we're sick. Our current healthcare system is based on this concept as well, which is why I chose to become an MDVIP-affiliated physician. Now, I have the time to care for you personally and proactively, which are the keys to helping you enjoy the healthiest life possible. 

I am double board certified in Family Medicine and Clinical Lipidology. I focus on the early diagnosis and aggressive treatment of cardiovascular disease (the most common cause of disability and death in the United States). My expertise lies in diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol problems and additional causes of strokes, heart attacks and other forms of vascular disease. I use advanced diagnostics, including genetic testing, inflammatory markers, imaging and advanced particle analysis to find vascular disease early, allowing me adequate time to work with each patient to develop a specialized treatment plan. You can’t treat everyone's needs the same way. That is the value of MDVIP’s model of personalized medicine. Similar to concierge medicine practices, I also offer conveniences like same- or next-day appointments that start on time. 

We can now better find potentially deadly illnesses before symptoms emerge. This is a major focus of my practice - prevention. The best path to a longer, healthier life is through a healthier lifestyle, avoiding disease and seeking early detection. This cannot be done passively. As a private doctor, I help my patients become active, informed participants in their own healthcare, and I believe the close partnerships I share with my patients is critical to them being well and staying well.

Telemedicine Option: I am also using telemedicine visits to stay connected with my patients when they are unable to see me in the office. It is easy to do, and we have maintained our momentum with preventive health goals and chronic care during difficult times.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Schubert

from Cori in GA March 11, 2024 for Robert L. Schubert, MD

Dr Schubert, you became our primary care physician when you assumed Dr Trotter’s practice as he retired. You, Margot and the girls were always kind and responsive to us: to me, as one who does not do well with blood work, to our daughter, Robin, when she was not well while visiting us, and especially to Bob, at the discovery that the unusual growth on his torso was a form of Lymphoma. I was… See more

from George in SC February 11, 2024 for Robert L. Schubert, MD

Dr. Schubert is approachable and will see you personally no matter what the ailment. He says “the oath” is the responsibility to keep it “family” and not a production facility. His cell phone is on day or night. He brings the value to the concierge cost.

from Richard in SC February 11, 2024 for Robert L. Schubert, MD

I contracted Covid in December 2020 when littel was known about the disease. After testing - I contacted the State agency (DHEC) and Dr. Schubert.

He prescribed some meds for cough and told me what to look for as complications.

He literally called or texted me or my wife every day listening to the emerging symptoms (aches, loss of smell, etc) and had me on the lookout for… See more

from Carole in SC January 19, 2024 for Robert L. Schubert, MD

He is the greatest. He has always been there when I have needed him. Always pleasant and very caring. He is an A+.

from Mary Kay in SC January 18, 2024 for Robert L. Schubert, MD

I’ve had a health issue that came upon me suddenly. Dr. Schubert has been proactive with my care, suggesting testing, following through every step of the process. He has happily accepted second opinions and been open with me. He has been responsive to my texts and I appreciate his willingness to encourage me to keep in touch with him. I’m so happy he’s my doctor!!

from Jack in SC January 18, 2024 for Robert L. Schubert, MD

Last Memorial Day weekend Dr Schubert met me in his office on Saturday and again on Monday. This took from his family time over the holiday weekend. He was actually the one suggesting he meet me at his office both times for a minor procedure since I was going out of town on Tuesday. Definitely above and Beyond Customer/Patient Care.

from Robert in TN March 12, 2020 for Robert L. Schubert, MD

I returned from Indiana to Tennessee after a bicycle ride. I thought I was getting a bug as my throat was sore. Tried to do a race Saturday and really felt horrible. Took a shower and was broken out. Running a fever and didn’t sleep well. Called dr Schubert Sunday morning on his cell phone and met him at his office. He scheduled tests and when I came back Monday they were all negative.… See more

from Susan in SC March 12, 2020 for Robert L. Schubert, MD

We were in need of a new doctor after moving to Bluffton, Sc from Pennsylvania. After a face to face with Dr Schubert, I knew that he was the doctor for me. I have lots of medical issues. Dr. Schubert went over each and everyone. I'm glad I found such thorough, kind doctor.
