Dr. Schuster is a physiatrist, specializing in degenerative spine diseases and AIS/HIV treatment.

It was not immediately clear how long he has been practicing in Manhattan, but biographical references indicate that he received his medical degree in 1982 from the Stavropol’Skij Medical Institute in Russia, and has been in practice for 27 years.

FBI sources indicated only that additional information may be forthcoming when the search was completed.
