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

Not a good experience. His receptionist is cold and rude. The doctor is basically a Rx writer- nothing more or less.

Dr. Schneider is one of those rare breed of excellent doctors who still takes a complete history, keeps up on recent changes in the field, and gives personal attention to his patients
Doctor Schneider gets down to the root causes of your condition. He is all business and does care about his patients. You have to follow his strict guidance if you want to see improvement. He is spot on with the diagnoses! Highly recommend if you are serious of getting better. He has a straight forward approach. Just listen to his treatment plan, follow it precisely!

There was an awful nurse screening the doctor's phone calls. I was unable to move forward with scheduling an appointment due to the woman's attitude. It takes a lot for someone to make the first call and it is very unfortunate there are people in this field who do not acknowledge this.
