Dr. Schmidt's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schmidt "I am a double board-certified facial plastic head and neck surgeon practicing in north central Florida. I offer a full range of surgical and medical options including Botox, fillers (Voluma, Juvederm, Sculptra, etc.,), laser resurfacing, skin rejuvenation and BBL/IPL treatments. I perform rhinoplasty ("nose jobs"), blepharoplasty ("eyelid surgery") and rhytidectomy ("face lifts") as well as facial/neck liposuction, lip augmentation and otoplasty ("ear pinning"). I have a special interest in skin cancer and both work and team with local dermatologists to rebuild MOHs surgery defects after skin cancer resection. I also resect and reconstruct other facial, scalp and neck skin cancers myself (including squamous cell carcinoma [SCC], basal cell carcinoma [BCCs], merkel cell carcinomas, and other rarer skin cancers). Specialized nasal and ear reconstructions are also part of my surgical repertoire. The use of cartilage or bone grafts, skin grafts (full and split thickness grafts) and other tissue flaps (including paramedian forehead flaps and temporoparietal faschial flaps) can not only be used for full or partial thickness defects but also to reconstruct partial, subtotal or, even in rarer cases, total nose and/or ear defects from cancer resections. Additionally, I treat patients with head and neck melanoma and offer sentinel node biopsy surgery to these patients if needed (as well as further extended resection of the salivary glands [parotid or submandibular] or neck nodes [via neck dissections] to eradicate the cancer found). I serve as a craniofacial trauma and reconstructive surgeon at all the local hospitals where I have admitting privileges. I perform both initial and revision reconstructive surgeries and offer surgery to correct facial paralysis. I work very hard at educating myself and stay abreast of the current trends in cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries by attending regional, national and international meetings in these subjects. I love what I do!!"

Arrogant and rude.
Ocala, FL |
RUN AWAY and go to a Dr. in the villages or Lady lake!! Very bad service all around. If you don't want unreturned called and a lot of headaches from the run around that you will get here at Ocala Ear, nose and Throat. Waited over an hour in the room past my appointment time. etc not enough room here to say everything!

Sadly, one of the most arrogant doctors ever. My appointment was 8:45. He came in at 11:05 and spent less than 5 minutes, completely dismissing me. Told me to "google" a possible condition! Was referred by my dr due to serious concerns that have yet to be resolved. I would not return to him if my ears were falling off.

DO NOT trust your healthcare to Dr. Christopher Schmidt at Ocala ENT. I've seen Dr. Schmidt on multiple occasions and found him to be pretentious and incompetent. His whirlwind approach may be acceptable from a doctor that is an expert in their field or particularly skilled, but not from the awful mess of Dr. Schmidt. Find and see a different ENT in Ocala.

Dr Schmidt did an awesome job on my Botox. I am pleased with the results and will be back. I also have recommended friends, coworkers, family, and clients to him. Great office and staff too.
