I will say that the Good Lord and Dr. Schmidt are the reasons I am able to walk today. Dr. Schmidt did back surgery (bad injury, accident) on me in 2006. I am 69 years old now and still able to get around ok. Thank you Dr. Schmidt, YOU ARE THE BEST.

Very rude. Never examined me. Said that I'm getting older and things don't work like they used to. Told me if it hurts then don't do it. I have herniated disks in my back and EVERYTHING hurts. What a waste of time and money. $257.36 for 1 visit for notbing!!
