He is operate-happy. He always was very quick in his appointments. His second surgery he did on my neck was completely unnecessary but now no one will touch me.

Thank you Dr. Scheid for fixing my back. I’ve healed very well and got much more improvement than I could have asked for. You did a wonderful job.

Dr. Schied has been taking care of me for both my neck and my back. He has been a true advocate for my health. I came to him wanting surgery but he convinced me to hold off on surgery for my low back but explained that we should fix my neck first. He was right. The neck surgery went perfectly and he sent me to his doctor associate for cortisone shots in my back which has done wonderful for my back pain. Looks like I will not need a back surgery any time soon. I am very thankful to him

He saved my uncles life by doing emergency brain surgery after he suffered bleeding between the brain and skull. Dr. Scheid arrived almost immediately and he reassured us and clearly explained what he was going to do. Surgery was long and the recovery was as well, but he saved my uncle and he is now back to his old self!

Upon extensive research Dr Sheid's office is located 140 Park Ave, Florham Park, NJ 07932. He is an amazingly talented Dr. I had a neck surgery-plates, screws and bars I could not hold my head up for nothing. My surgery was in 2012, I have no issues, NONE. Even great bedside manner and very caring. Thank you so much Dr Sheid.

He listened to me and found out what was going wrong in my spine. Everyone else thought I was crazy. If I hadn’t found him I’d still be in pain.

He’s straight forward and very easy to talk to. Not what I had in mind from a neurosurgeon. Very skilled. He is a great guy and glad he is in NJ!

He’s wonderful. Explains everything clearly and gave me options laid out in a concise manner which helped us make a decision on how to proceed. My surgery with Dr. Scheid went perfectly. I am highly satisfied with everything from my first meeting with him all the way until I was fully recovered.

His office in Slingerlands closed... how are all these reviews coming in? And all positive? 3 failed back surgeries on my husband a drop foot and he wanted to do another surgery.. entire office shut down.. so where are People seeing him? Or is this a farce. No bad reviews? Really? In 4 plus years my husband probably saw him 4 times after at least 100 visits.. so where is he now??

Special thanks to Dr. Scheid and his team for taking great care of my back when I herniated a lumbar disc. I was in really bad shape and truly thought my active lifestyle was over for good. Fortunately, Dr. Scheid saw me and diagnosed me with a herniated lumbar disc requiring a microdiscectomy procedure. I had the surgery a week later and pain resolved shortly after. I am back to doing the things I love and enjoying the outdoors!

Dr Scheid operated on my C4-C6 bone spur that was hitting my spinal cord. I can’t say enough good things about him and his team. Best decision I ever made.

I had a severe back injury from falling down a flight of concrete steps. My doc recommended Dr. Scheid after an MRI revealed two crushed discs and a compression fracture. Dr. Scheid is extremely professional and straightforward. He broke the situation down for me in a way that I could understand and put my wife at ease with the plan. He did a lumbar fusion through small incisions in my back and repaired the crushed discs and put a sealant into the fractured bone. Everything went well.

My father had developed weakness in his arms and legs and he had been told that it was basically just normal weakness. he had a fall and this led to us taking him to the ER. Dr. Scheid was on call and recommended a CAT scan of his neck. It turned out that his weakness was from a big bone spur crushing his spinal cord! Dr. Scheid recommended some medicine to stop the swelling around his spinal cord and then eventually surgery. He did great and we are very thankful

He treated me for an L4S1 herniated disc. Great bedside manner and his staff is excellent. I had a microdiscectomy and did very well. Pain was virtually gone in a day or so after surgery.

Cant say enough about Dr. Schied. He was incredibly helpful to me when I was diagnosed with a ruptured disc in my back with spinal stenosis. He got me right in and put my mind at ease. He is very confident and knows his field. The next day after surgery I was walking around and the pain was so much better I couldnt believe it. His PA is fantastic as well. They make a very good team.

Found my problem right away when others blew me off. He is all business and got my back fixed right. Feel very very lucky that I found him.
