      I definitely recommend Dr. Schnell! He is very knowledgeable and clearly cares about his patients. I have never felt rushed. He is not “quick to cut” but rather offers alternative treatments. When the time comes to replace my hip I have total confidence in him!

      Dr Schnell impressed me both via telehealth first visit and in person for a consult to discuss MRI results. He was straightforward, took time and answered all my questions. His positive assessment helped me feel comfortable in choosing the knee repair which is the right choice for my lifestyle and situation.

      The man cares. I had TKR 1 1/2 yrs ago by different doctor who left me blowing in the wind with problems ,I then used Dr. Schnell for a revision and honestly could not be happier, long road ahead but this man cares about the outcome. Thru surgery and post op I feel like I matter to him. Can’t go wrong using Dr Schnell

      Dr. Schnell performed a total knee replacement on me a year ago. I did not have a lot of pain in the knee following surgery so I believe he did a very good job on the knee. In my several appointments with him both pre- and post-op he has always been very courteous. He answers all questions thoroughly and does not rush you on the appointment. I would highly recommend him to others who need knee surgery.

      He's always cheerful when he says hello to me while shaking your hand. Besides the little chit-chat, he listen to my concerns and gives me his thoughts to my issues. At the end of my visit, he shakes my hand again and wish me well. You can't beat that type of one-on-one visit. Thank you Dr. Schnell.

      I had my hip repacked two years ago with Dr.Schnell@RWJ Hamilton and it was awesome ! Now my opposite hip is starting to act up so we are trying some cortisone injections as always Dr.Schnell is professional and totally engaged in my care ! As a nurse I am very picky about who treats me and Dr Schnell is at the top of my list ! His MA Brian is very friendly and professional! He always has a smile and makes you feel so comfortable! Highly recommend!

      Dr. Schnell has the best bedside manner that I have seen in a very long time. Very compassionate and showed much concern for what my expectations were after my knee surgery. My recovery is going well, with minimum scarring. I am one happy camper about that. I highly recommend Dr. Schnell if your experiencing knee problems. Hopefully, I will not have to use his services again, but if so he is the only doctor that would operate on me! Very satisfied patient.
