She was not interested in helping me at all. Should would not listen and repeatedly ask me what do you want us to do for you. She told ne not to come back and go see an endrocronoligist in Des Moines but he couldnt help me before. Thats why i went to her. She was more interested in teaching her interns my skin and buffalo humps. I wasted my 3 hr trip and money. She didnt exam me .I ask her to run blood work because I have adrenal insufficency and cushings and she said no.

Wow a Doctor that actually listens to what you say! In the follow up phone call she even remembered something I had said as just a passing comment.

She found out what was wrong with my husband when no one else could. She is logical in her approach to your endrocrine health care. She has always been available if we need an answer to a question dealing with his endrocrine system. Dr Schlechte is a wonderful doctor who knows how to deal with anything.

I've had her as a doctor for several years. I've brought up many health issues to her and she completely ignores serious complaints. Even after her ignoring serious issues and ending up in the ER, she still refuses to even contact me back. Find a different provider.
