Patient Comments (5)
New York, NY |
Dr. Schneider has an extremenly incompetent and uncaring staff. I made a appointment 3 weeks in advance to see her. I was a new patient and wanted to confirm that she took my insurance. Her staff assured me she did. Less than 24 hours before the appointment I got a call that Dr. Schneider, in fact, did not take my insurance and they were canceling the appointment. All they could say was, sorry about that. I am in pain and need to see a doctor and waited three weeks for my appointment.

Dr. Schneider is an excellent, warm, and caring doctor who listened to my concerns and assisted me with my issues. She is very professional. However, her staff is not the same. Any time I called in an attempt to have issues regarding billing or insurance resolved, each staff provides a different response and is quite rude when I attempt to inform them of the information I received from the insurance company. The staff does not communicate well, instead they are snappy and impatient.

I have sent my family and friends to Dr.schneider. They returned to relate that she is a very professional and caring with all of them. On time with appintments , calls back to see how you are. And can diagnose other problems that are effecting a person . We need more doctors like this.

She was very thorough and patient. I had a somewhat displaced fracture in my shoulder and a torn rotator cuff and I had to decide whether or not to have surgery to repair them. She didn't pressure me to have the surgery, even though that's what she thought would be best. Instead she patiently answered all my questions and showed me my x-rays and explained her position. I ultimately decided to have the surgery and she did a wonderful job! I am recovering very well. I highly recommend her.

Excellent experience. Warm, friendly, genuinely interested in my symptoms, listened and asked questions. Answered questions and confirmed my understanding. Discussed plan and treatment options which we agreed to. Delightful experience and will absolutely recommend her to others. Also very much appreciated her showing me my X-rays and explaining what they showed. Very professional.
