What People Say About Dr. Gary Schmidt, MD

ITen years ago, I had a horrible bunion that was way past the time of getting help. Dr Schmidt removed my buinion, added a plate and 3 screws to stabilize my bones. I have been pain free ever since. Actually, as soon as the pain block wore off, I could feel my last two toes that I had no idea that had been affected to badly. I have sent numerous friends and co-workers to him. They have all been pleased with his work.

I would not recommend Dr. Schmidt to anyone. I had an ankle replacement done several years ago by him. I've been in worse pain since having it done. I didn't even know that was possible. I have since been to doctors who say the replacement was done very poorly. I developed other issues from the replacement as well. The staff is friendly and I had no issues with them.

I would NEVER recommend this Doctor to do Surgery on your foot. He totally ruined my foot. I had my surgery about 8years ago and have never been able to walk the same. I had another Surgeon,2 yrs ago, take X-rays of my foot, to see what this doctor did to me. He was blown away by what he did. He told me that there was NO way of repairing the damage he did. So,I felt other people should know, and be aware that your putting your feet in his hands. You might not ever be able to walk right again.

I had foot surgery by Dr. Schmidt in 2014. There were a number of problems afterward, including an infected toe that had to be redone; a bunion that is worse now than it was then; and a hammer toe that is too long, sticking out, and crisscrossing another toe. Walking is difficult; the surgery will have to be redone; and another orthopedic surgeon who looked at the x-rays and the foot was candidly appalled by what he saw. Despite Dr. Schmidt's excuses, this was a botched surgery.

Dr. Schmidt performed a total ankle replacement on me one year ago. It has truly changed my life. After 15 years of limping in pain, with little results from another doctor, I found Dr. Schmidt. I can now say that my new ankle is the best part of my entire body. I review optional replacements and Dr. Schmidt's impressed me the most. Dr. Schmidt and his staff were professional, courteous, and extended the confidence I needed to go thru with the surgery. Thank you Dr. Schmidt and staff.

I had bunion surgery a couple of years ago and since the surgery I'm unable to go back to my regular size shoe the second toe was extended out more after surgery and it's hard to wear any type of shoe with it not rubbing against and creating a sore. His resolution was to buy bigger shoes, so now I almost have to buy two sizes. I consulted with another doctor and indicated to me that I will need another surgery within the next 5 years and that my toes are now all slanting to the right.

A referral from a former patient put us in Dr. Schmidt's hands. My husband has suffered for years and Dr. Schmidt was able to give us the satisfaction we have long looked for. Only wish we had found him sooner.
