Performed my total hip replacement. Absolutely incredible results. No pain at all and will be going in for other hip at the end of the year. While he isn't necessary the warmest doctor with whom I've had contact, the results warrant a high recommendation. Thank you so much, Dr. Scheid!

1 visit and will never go back. Terrible bedside manners. No compassion. After only looking at xray and speaking for 10 minutes he recommended a MAJOR surgery. Received 2 additional opinions, both of which said surgery was not only not necessary now, but may never be necessary. Seems way too quick...more
