I was fortunate to find Dr Schneider through a friend . He spent a good hour taking my history and doing a really extensive explanation of my sleep condition. I was very impressed by hi s bedside manner and the workings of the office

Single best MD experinece in 24 years. He took a really long history, called my prior psychiatrist, and coordinated with my GP. He pointed out that I had been misdiagnosed and was really bipolar , not major depression. I'm fortunate to have been taken into his practice
