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 PUTS OTHER PEOPLE'S FILES ON TOP OFF MINE AND MAKES ME WAIT IN THE WAITING ROOM SOMETIMES FOR AN HOUR TO AN HOUR AND A HALF BEFORE I SEE DR. SCHNEIDER FOR FIVE MINUTES. I HAVE SAT THERE AND OTHER PEOPLE COME AND SIGN IN THIRTY TO FORTY FIVE MINUTES AFTER ME AND THEY GET SEEN AND LEAVE WHILE I'M STILL WAITING TO BE SEEN FOR MY FIVE MINUTES VISIT WITH DR. SCHNEIDER. AND THIS ISN'T A ONE TIME THING, I HAVE BEEN GOING THERE FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW AND THIS HAPPENS EVERY TIME!!!!!!!! I PUT UP WITH IT BECAUSE I THINK THAT HIGHLY OF DR. SCHNEIDER AND SHE IS THAT GOOD AT HER PROFESSION. I HAVE NEVER SAID OR DONE ANYTHING TO JENNIFER TO BE TREATED LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
