      I love coming to this office, the staff is great. The professionalism is above standard. I appreciate that the wait is not very long. The explanations from Dr Schneider are excellent. I feel I am in very competent hands.

      Dr Schneider did cataract surgery in both of my eyes and it's unbelievable how vivid my vision is now. It's like my eyes are in Hi-Def. Dr Schneider and her staff went over and beyond before during and after my surgery. I highly recommend her as she is an excellent eye surgeon.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
