Dr Schmidt is the only doctor that has the expertise to manage my baclofen bump. Along with her PA Alison, they make the perfect team. I feel so very comfortable with them managing me! Besides that they are Awesome Ladies. Their office staff are so easy to work also. Thanks Megan. Mike S

My daughter was born with Spina Bifida and hydrocephalus and Dr Schmidt did an outstanding job on my daughters back surgery and her shunt surgery. She and her assistant are very very professional and informative with each step of care they did on my daughter I highly recommend Dr Schmidt to anyone who asks me for a neurologist. ??????

I had fusion of my C5 / C7 and Dr Schmidt has done an outstanding job. My surgery went well and I had no issues. She kept me informed of everything that was to take place before and after the surgery, I definitely recommend her!!!

I have had two spinal fusions with Dr Schmidt. L5/S1 and C6/C7 six years apart. Both surgeries went amazingly well and I had a full recovery on both. I'm able run, swim and lift like I could before. After the L5/S1 I expected to never run again, but I got back to 8 miles in an hour. I definitely recommend her!!!

She is very plain spoken. She gets what she wants when she wants it and I truly love her for that. She made my little girl walk properly again after an extremely delayed spina bifida diagnosis. She did not water down any of the information and sat with us while she answered all of our questions. She also does NOT sugar coat anything. She is amazing and she will be the only one that will EVER touch my daughter's spinal cord.
