Patient Rating:
“The doctor offered good explanation for my knee condition and a logical approach. He was also very attentive to my post surgery needs and concerns to include adjusting the schedule of my follow-up office appointments. He was very easy to talk to about my concerns and addressed my questions.”
– Randall S.
Patient Rating:
“I'm so glad that Dr. Schneider was recommended to me by a co-worker. The fact that he always starts from square one with my ailments: Physical Therapy. Some Doctors are always ready to operate, not my Doc.! Appointments are always on time and I've never had trouble in getting an appointment sooner rather than later. Dr. Schneider's staff is always polite and ready to engage in conversation with me; which is better than any other specialist I've ever seen.”
