I recommend Dr Schmidt to everyone who needs orthopedic care. [...]
Excellent again.
I always recommend Dr. Schmidt to my friends, and family.
Dr. Schmidt is the epitome of a good physician. He listens. He responds directly and knowledgeably to questions or concerns that are mentioned. He always presents a list of options for next steps. I trust him.
Doctor Schmidt was very thorough. This was my one year check after knee replacement.
I love Dr. Schmidt. He is the best there is.
Always good visit.
Everything was great.
My PCP recommended Dr. Schmidt and Dr. Schmidt was extraordinarily knowledgeable (i.e. brilliant) about the bodily area that caused my office visit (i.e. hip and thigh). He also very kindly and thoroughly explained my x-ray and all of the "issues" he saw (or did not find) in the x-ray image. In addition to my very positive comments, I later learned that Dr. Schmidt unilaterally/voluntarily talked to my PCP the next morning about my "case". I was stunned by Dr. Schmidt's kindness (and professionalism) in taking the time to briefly talk with my PCP. I mention this because, RELATIVELY SPEAKING, my medical problem was NOT extremely serious. It WAS a medical issue that needed Dr. Schmidt's expertise and scrutiny, but I was simply so impressed that Dr. Schmidt took this "extra time" (and remembered me enough) to tell my PCP what he (Dr. S.) had "found" during his examination of me the PRIOR afternoon. This is the act of a SUPERLATIVE medical doctor (and human being).
Best orthopedic service available
Dr. Schmidt is amazing -- calm but deliberate. Doesn't do anything without telling me what he's doing. And all of his assistants (at least the ones I had) were polite and efficient. Honestly, it ain't much fun going to the doctor for a potential problem, but both visits I've had there in the last 8(?) months have been downright pleasurable.
Dr. Schmidt is wonderful. I have every confidence in him for my care.
I'm so happy to now be under the excellent care which, I know, Dr. Schmidt and your entire team will provide!
Always a good experience w/Dr. Schmidt and his staff.
Received excellent care, wouldn't think about going to any other Orthopedic Specialist. Dr. Schmidt is the best.
Already recommended him to my brother-in-law who had Dr. Schmidt perform knee replacement surgery.
Doctor has a wonderful bed side manner, thorough, good listener, answers questions!
