very good

Dr. Schmidt replaced my left shoulder in 2014--excellent results. In March 2016, he replaced my right shoulder which is doing very well. This appointment was to check progress with PT and troubleshoot if any additional problems. I am doing very well and progressing as planned.

good experiences

I am 78 and seen many providers and Dr. Schmidt is one of the best I have ever encountered.

over all good experience

Very pleased with this care provider and would highly recommend him. He took his time to explain and show me with a diagram what was wrong and what and how it would be fixed.

Everything was positive about my experience.

May 26, 2016

I have been seeing Dr. Christopher Schmidt for care for medial and lateral epicondylitis of the right arm which resulted in two surgeries. Both of those surgeries went well, and Dr. Schmidt did excellent work. I am no longer experiencing difficulty with the right arm. I have recently had trouble with the left arm in the same way, and Dr. Schmidt is very kind and compassionate. He does not rush to surgery, and instead exhausts all non-invasive options first. I appreciate his willingness to do what is is my best interest.

May 26, 2016

pleased with visit. Dr. answered questions concerning problem.
