Dr Schmidt is my hand specialist for my arthritis. I would not go to anyone else.

October 15, 2015

Dr Schmidt was awesome

October 13, 2015

My husband and I met with Dr. Schmidt for thr first time to get his opinion regarding an ongoing very painful shoulder that I have had three surgeries on. He entered the exam room mumbled what I think was hello or his name never looking either one of us in the face. He looked over my operative notes and never referred to exrays just taken. He had me do some arm movements then dictated something mumbled that I understood him to say "it is worn out" it needes to been replaced. I need an MRI and CT SCAN. he then left the room and grabed his rolling tray and proceeded down the hallwtheMy husband and I were left standing there looking at each other like what just happened

my appointment was at 3:30 and I didn't see the Dr until 5. I sat in an exam room for over an hour.

The doctor understood my problem. He did a great job explaining my condition and treatment options.

Great experience. Very good communication regarding my tennis elbow. Explained path forward and options (including the need for surgery, if required). I highly recommend Dr. Schmitt.

September 08, 2015

Staff and nurses were outstanding. Felt very fortunate to be referred to this office.

September 03, 2015

Dr. Schmidt was the doctor who operated on my husband's rotator cup about 8 years ago. I would not attempt to see any other surgeon for my arm/shoulder. I feel that he is the best
