Dr. Schneider and all of her staff were great. I was seen in a timely manner and treated very courteously and in a professional manner. They were careful to keep all patients as germ free as possible during this time of Coronavirus. The staff were very pleasant and assisted me over and above what I ever expected. Dr. Schneider took her time to listen to my concerns and explained everything I needed to know. I left feeling thankful that I came to her office. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Schneider is an excellent ophthalmologist. Her bed side manner is very professional and she’s very kind and caring. She takes her time explaining conditions and she isn’t an alarmist. She’s been my eye doctor for many, many years and she also performed both of my cataract surgeries. I never had an issue. I had one eye operated on in Slidell and the other in Metairie. Both facilities and staff were excellent. I highly recommend her for anyone young or old!

Dr. Schneider always takes time to carefully explain what is going on and answer any questions. She is not quick to just jump at doing a procedure but would prefer to try less invasive options first. I love that! I’ve been seeing her for years and don’t plan to stop!

She and her staff were very thorough, even though my husband and I were there 3 hours, we were new patients and they were very busy.
