Of all the drs. I’ve ever had, and I’ve had a lot in my lifetime, I feel Dr. Schmidt cares for me as a person, not just a patient. Since I began seeing him, he has given me confidence that he is doing everything in his power to see me regain my health. After my first visit, he said three words to me that every patient would love to hear, “I got ya!”
