Dr. Schnider is a unique physician. His caring attitude, attention to every aspect of the physical examine, and exceptional knowledge are so rare these days in our health care professionals. I am not sure what I will do when he retires. One of a kind physician.

Before meeting Dr. Schneider I thought I wasn't going to be able to carry a pregnancy to term I had 2 prior miscarriages, I would miscarry around 4 months. Dr. Schneider was my miracle he knew what need to be done he told be I needed a abdominal cerclog. When I was 4 months pregnant Dr. Schneider did my abdominal cerclog my son was born in 2004 and later on I had 2 daughters with the help of Dr. Schneider in 2006 and 2008. Typically women don't have multiple births with the abdominal cerclog. Dr. Schneider is a true blessing I highly reccomend him to anyone having difficulties carrying their pregnancies to term !!!

I was referred for a surgery and was really nervous. The nurses and employees at the front were really nice and helpful and answered all my questions. Dr. Schnider scheduled my surgery and will do it non-invasive which was not an option by my previous doctor.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Schnider for many years. I have multiple health issues - some of which affect my gynecological needs. I’ve always felt confident in Dr. Schnider’s expertise and experience to deal with complicated issues. When I was younger and in search of a gynecologist, my Gastroenterologist and my Pulmonologist both recommended him. Both of these doctors were female and were both patients of Dr. Schnider. I’ve always felt that he is a “doctor’s doctor”.

I went for my yearly check up with Dr. Schneider in December of 2019. As always he is very professional, pleasant and really cares about my concerns or problems that I may bring up during my visit. His staff is also very nice, efficient and professional. I have been going to him for approximately 15 years and trust him completely with my care. Even though I live in Sugar Land, I continue to go to his office, as for me it is well worth it. I would certainly recommend anyone looking for a new doctor to call his office.

I went to Dr. Schnider for endometriosis bc I was in the ER every month and needed my 4th excision surgery. He was offended not to be my 1st choice, then proceeded to tell me nothing is wrong w me while sitting in his office and that I have GI problems. Then he did an exam where he fondled my breasts (I have an OBGYN for regular exams) and finally agreed to surgery. Pre-op he suggested seeing if my fallopian tube is open based on previous surgical notes. I went through a painful procedure w/out any pain meds or anxiety meds not knowing it would hurt or trigger my claustrophobia bc he did not prep me. To be clear, he jammed an instrument into my cervix after I told him I have a very tight cervix and have had problems during surgery where I needed dilation. I told him after that it was painful and he said "told you so". I left crying. That was the last time I ever saw that callous monster. I cancelled surgery, found an endo expert and never looked back. AVOID THIS MAN. He doesn't care.

I have been seeing Dr. Schneider since 2005 and believe a 14-year relationship speaks volumes as to my high regard for him as a person and a physician. Dr. Schneider is a very considerate, and skilled doctor, who never rushes the appointment, nor tries to rush the patient. He has always taken the time to sit with me, to discuss and answer all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Schneider and will choose to see him for as long as he continues to practice.

I have been going to Dr Schnider for more than 27 years. He is by far the BEST doctor amount all doctors. His knowledge of medicine extended much more than just OBGYN. He has been able to take my OBGYN needs and able to identify my problems that my other doctor could NOT. Truly, a great doctor. And the people in his office are great, very friendly and helpful.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schnider for over 20 years. He has always been very patient, professional and kind. He listens to my concerns and because of him, I was referred to a cardiologist. He saved my life. Words can not explain his skills and knowledge of the female anatomy and well-being.
