I had to wait 2 hours before seeing the doctor. By the time I did see him I was rushed and unable to get satisfaction with the multiple issues I needed addressed. I felt like having to wait 2 hours was unprofessional and disrespectful. I didn't get one of the blood tests I requested and wasn't given any feedback about what the blood tests revealed as far as treatment implications. Obviously, too many patients scheduled in not enough time. This is no doubt what you get when corporate America does health care. I think Dr. Schmitz is an excellent doctor, but I was not satisfied with my experience. I would continue to see him if he were working in a setting where I could feel like my issues could be fully addressed, and not treated with such disregard. This is probably more an issue of Ogden Clinic than this doctor.

It was very quick and professional. Front desk was a little backed up but efficient. Nurse and Doctor were great.

He is the best Doctor I have ever had. And that includes a Doctor I had for 25 years in Arizona. He is thorough and you hardly ever have to go back for anything twice. I would highly recommend this Doctor to all.

I've been going to Dr. Schmitz for over 12 years and there's a reason I keep going back. Dr. Schmitz educates me with every appointment I make while keeping my feelings and concerns in mind. My family and I will continue going to Ogden Clinic and seeing Dr. Schmitz.

My experience was awful. My daughter has been congested for weeks and after forcing her to go to the doctor he did nothing to help (she's a teen). They punctured her nose testing for a flu that I knew she did not have... It's bled for over hour so far. I expressed my concern over the fact that it is not normal to go weeks with congestion and that I felt he was overlooking an important piece. He responded with a shrug. Horrible bed side manner.
