Corpus Christi, TX |
Worst doctor I've ever seen. Arrogant, unprofessional, did not do his job. When you have an appointment you will wait 2-3 hours. He will expect you to like it or you can leave, this is his attitude.

Tops in professionalism, skill and class! I have always believed I have been given the best in treatment and care from Dr. Schlimmer and his staff. Very caring and considerate. Always felt safe. Outstanding. I waited one time longer than 20 minutes and his staff came out and apologized and said he had emergency and running behind and offered to reschedule if we desired and could not wait. Then when I did go back and consult with Dr Schimmer he personally apologized for he wait. Wow. Very nice.
