I didn't have to wait to be taken to a room. I was still filling out paperwork and was seen by a doctor. Staff was courteous and pleasant.

very relaxed and comfortable with Dr. Schmidt

September 24, 2019

He is the best ortho Dr i have gone to. very knowledgeable and listens

September 24, 2019

Dr. Schmidt is a good doctor in his field, I'm sure, but not very prompt with patient visits. I waited 1-1/2 hours in his exam room because he was running late. Nurse came in and said "we're running an hour behind, but at least you have a window to look out." Dr. came in and examined my arm that had been operated on and was gone in 5 minutes Never apologized for keeping me waiting. I was not too happy.

Dr Schmidt is awesome. He repaired my shoulder that another surgeon said could not be done.

All medical personnel associated with the 2 surgeries that I have had in the last couple of months have been very professional and courteous responding to my concerns and medical needs.

it was my first time to see Dr. Schmidt and I was pleased with his friendliness, interest and thoroughness. He was willing to explain in another way if I didn't understand something he was explaining. I was very pleased with my visit.
