Dr. Schnell is an excellent physician in the field of gastroenterology. He has performed two endoscopies with great results. The procedure was painless, and I had no side effects. I highly recommend his professionalism. I also value the skilled nurses and other medical staff at Palmetto Digestive.

I had been having chest/acid reflux issues that were awful. 6 months of tests and different doctors and my issues were still a mystery. I began to think I was going crazy and maybe it was all in my head. I was referred to Dr. Schnell threw my PCP. I went in he took one look at me had a idea of what it was, scheduled some tests and with in a few days I was diagnosed with a hiatial hernia. HE was an amazing dr in every way possible! I highly recommend him to anyone!
