As a physician, Dr. Schulman specializes in treating patients with various retina issues and uveitis, a form of eye inflammation, as well as other common eye conditions at his practice in Shreveport, Louisiana. Being a part of something greater than himself, he also oversees a free clinic at Saint Mark’s Church for indigent patients.

Dr. Schulman was a reviewer for three professional publications: Current Eye Research, The American Journal of Ophthalmology, and the Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science. An alumnus of Goddard College, Dr. Schulman received a Bachelor of Arts in liberal arts and sciences and liberal studies in 1971.
