Pittsburgh, PA |
I went to Dr. Schmidt in a ton of pain. He ordered an MRI and told me they would call with the results. I had to call them. They would not give any information over the phone and told me I had to have a follow up appt. I had to wait for this appt.. When I went to this appointment he was very dismissive of me because I guess the MRI didn't show enough of a problem. When I asked if this type of problem usually gets worse over time he actually said, "Well, I don't have a crystal ball".

He has horrible follow-up procedures. Called 3x before he called me back. Each time I stated it was an emergency, he did nothing.

I don't even know what I could say that is positive. My appointment with this doctor was a waste of time and money. I have suffered from back pain due to the curve of my spine and I was told that "you have to live with it, there is really nothing we can do". What kind of a doctor says that? I had to wait over 30 days for this appointment, only to be dismissed with him having spent less than 10 minutes with me. Needless to say, I will not be returning, nor would I recommend him.

Dr. Schmidt has now had to open me up two times, first was putting me back together after being hit by a car while I was stopped on a motorcycle. The initial surgery entailed removing broken bone and re-positioning what was left no issues! The second time I managed to break hardware easily visible with x-ray. When he got in there he found the remaining hardware was in much worse condition than the picture showed. I managed to loosen all the hardware. Was going to break I trust him to work on me.
