Dr Schmitt is awesome. Very caring, informative and has a good bedside manner/sense of humor! The nurse that assisted is a gem too. A true sweetheart. Wish I could remember her name but i didnt think to get it.
Doctor was informative and knows what he is doing. The staff are curteous to and efficient. Highly recommend this pain clinic at this time.
Dr. Alex Schmidt and his staff are a blessing to have found. I have chronic pain due to cervical and lumbar spine injuries from a car accident and I see Dr. Schmidt on a regular basis and I’m so grateful for him. The entire office staff is very professional and I would recommend them to anyone in need of a good pain management team. (In a world full of opioid abuse, pain management has changed and real patients are suffering more than ever.) I was desperate and tired of suffering and struggling just to do normal things and I finally went searching for help again and my orthopedic neurosurgeon recommended “Premier Pain and Spine” Dr. Alex Schmidt and I’m happy to report I’m doing so much better and I know I’m in good hands.

I had radiating stabbing pain and paralysis in my left arm. I was sent to see the Dr and the staff is amazing and friendly. My consultation was fantastic. I had spinal nerve compression in C3-C5A. I. was scheduled in 2 days and yesterday was my procedure. I was a little overwhelmed with the injections (low tolerance level)in my spine and my doctor was so patient and understanding. I am probably going to need a little more after having pain at a level 50 for almost 3 weeks today I am a level 1 and I immediately was able to touch my face now! I can’t praise or thank them enough for what they do!!!!
