Patient Comments (3)
in Indianapolis, IN |
I have had 4 joint replacements (2 hips, 2 knees)... all performed by Dr. Scheid. I have had ZERO problems (such as infections, uncontrolled pain, etc.). I have recommended Dr. Scheid to family, friends & co-workers. He is very friendly, professional and does great at explaining both the surgery and expected outcomes. Joint replacement surgery is certainly not fun... but Dr. Scheid and his staff seemed to do their best at smoothing the entire process. Recommend him??? Absolutely!

Absolutely horrid. Smug, arrogant. Told me many things that I knew weren't true. I so wish I had not seen this man!
