Mesa, AZ |
I had elbow replacement by Dr. Schneider in 2017. During the surgery, he knocked the upper rod out the back of my bone. He didn’t tell anyone about it. I saw it on the xrays and then he comes in saying he knew about it and had already text another doctor to see if he could fix it. I had to have another surgery and bone graph to fix what Schneider messed up. I had to pay for both surgeries.He later started saying that I had to have second surgery because my bone broke, which was a lie.

Dr. Schneider, did a full replacement of my left shoulder. He did an excellent job, I have had no problems with it since. Am totally satisfied with my progress. Highly recommend Dr Schneider
in Ovid, CO |
Dr. Schneider I met him one time I felt like I've known him for years we've gone to Panorama before my mom dad me and all the doctors are wonderful but I think dr. Schneider tops it all dr. Mills was great but I like that he specializes just in the one thing I need and when it comes to another knee I think I want Dr. Mills again but dr. Schneider you can't beat him.

I have already recommended Dr. Schneider to friends and coworkers. He is thorough and calmly reassuring.
in Denver, CO |
Excellent communications, clearly an expert in his field.
in Evergreen CO |
Dr. Schneider is awesome! He repaired my shoulder and it feels great??
in Northglenn |
Met with him regarding issue of severely torn shoulder. He reviewed my injuries with me and provided a treatment plan. I found him to be professional while also being very down easy to communicate with. I am confident he is the best.
in Littleton, Colorado |
He is an amazing physician who inspires confidence especially when you are in pain that everything is going to be okay. He also has such a contagious positive attitude. It is a pleasure to be in the same room with his positiveness.
in Lakewood, Co |
I had to have a rt total shoulder revision. Because I have had 6 total joint replacements all done by surgeons at Panorama Ortho Clinic, I went to see Dr Schneider. He had to do the revision with two separate surgeries. I never saw him again after both surgeries. I ended up with a non functioning rt shoulder for a year. My husband is president of Panorama, but Dr Schneider never saw me after surgery. Too busy, too arrogant. I spent a year with little use of my rt arm. I would never recommend him
San Antonio, TX |
Have been in pain for months to wait 45 minutes for dr to be told I had to wait another week or longer to hear from another dr for treatment. It wasn't so much Dr Schneider it was the tech who provided no explanation and/or understanding of how I felt that was frustrating.
in Arvada, CO |
I had a 60% cuff tear with the greater tuberosity torn off after a motocross accident in 2016. I had seen another doctor who wanted to wait 6 months to do surgery. I had researched for the best shoulder specialist in the state and it led me to Dr Schneider. After I brought the required MRI to Dr Schneider, he advised surgery asap and had me scheduled within the week. The staff at Panorama is great and the surgical staff was top notch and very caring and I will recommend to everyone. THANKU SIR !
in Denver, CO |
I waited close to an hour both times I had appointments with Dr. Schneider. During my last visit, after waiting 55 minutes to see him, he spent maybe 5 minutes with me to go over my MRI results. I understand Doctors can get busy, but waiting close to an hour each time is ridiculous! Panorama is a factory, nothing more. Their Drs. are trying to make as much money as possible and could care less about helping YOU! Do yourself a favor and find an ortho doc that wants to help you, first and foremost
in Lakewood, CO |
Yes- I recommend Dr. Schneider. He is the best!
in Littleton, CO |
This is the 2nd time that I have Dr Schneider in Golden, CO. This time I had to wait for a hour before being in checked in. Then the MA told us that we Had 3 people ahead of us. Which sound like a 1/2 hour or hour more!!! My daughter had to be home to pick up her kids. Our appt. was at 1:55 so you think that would be enough time. So we left. There must be a very big problem in scheduling.
