Faboulous doctor with compassion combined with professional skills and total confidence. She listens and takes time to make sure all goes well
Brockton, MA |
Dr Schnipper is a very condescending person. Her tone thru out my appointment was unacceptable. I was referred to her by another one of my Dr's who thought it was important to have my situation accessed. Dr. Schnipper's attitude gave me the impression was that I was wasting her time. I would not recommend her.

Dr. Schnipper has no empathy for her patients. I saw her twice and I hope to never see her again. First she mislead me by not informing me on the true pain a person can have with bending. She told me it was nothing! I've given birth twice with no medication and the pain I had after bending was the worse of my life. Than, when I couldn't stand the pain after few days and went back to her, she doubted me, made me feel as if I was weak. Her nurse was just as bad if that's possible, demeaning.
As a healthcare prof I can say with certainty Dr. Schnipper may be one of the least empathetic/compassionate physicians I have met. Her bedside manner is defensive and judgemental, she lacks up to date knowledge regarding guidelines, and the least innovative surgeon I've known. She suggested I take pictures of sensitive areas with my phone to prove my problem & her nurse provided no dignity when undraping me. She mistook my anxiety and pain for "aggression" and fired me. Poor medicine.

She doesn't have enough experience I guess she has bad attitude

Dr Schnipper is an excellent surgeon. I unfortunatey have had both fissure and fistula surgeries performed by Dr. Schipper. She is very upfront on the risks and benefits of the procedures. In addition she prepares you for the post surgical pain. Dr. Schnipper is always available for questions. She is also is very punctual, keeping appointments on time. I highly recommend Dr Schnipper.
