Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Great experience. Best I've had from an eye doctor--staff is attentive and very helpful & thorough, knowledgeable and work together as a team. Dr. Schneider is thorough and I've gotten care that I needed that I didn't get from other eye doctors seen in the past 5 years. Now treating the beginnings of glaucoma and vision correction that has meant everything in my functioning and vision. Thanks for your caring and care.

Dr. Schneider is an exceptional caregiver. She's thorough, knowledgeable, communicative and spends time with you. Her office crew is friendly, welcoming and efficient. If you want to feel that you matter to your caregiver as opposed to just being another patient file then I would recommend a visit to any of Dr. Schneider's offices. I've been to both Metairie and Slidell.
