What People Say About Dr. Christopher Schmidt, MD
Reply
Takes time to explain problem and how to resolve it. Wait time is not bad in waiting room and exam room (15 min.) Not quick to want to do surgery, will try PT or other options first. Impressed by his approach to the patient.Felt very informed after my visit.
