Wouldnt recommend. Was hesitant to schedule with her since I had heard she cancels her appointments a lot. Well... shouldve trusted my instincts. Got to her office and she cancelled after i had traveled and hour and taken off work to see her. This has happened to numerous people. If you work or travel far i would highly recommend you NOT schedule with this dr

Dr. Schmitt was a brand new provider to me and she took the time to explain everything to me in detail and to come up with a plan for treatment that included my expectations and concerns.

Doctor changed diagnosis every time I saw her.

I have & would recommend Dr Kim Schmitt to anyone that appreciates quality health care and compassion. She always spends time to thoroughly go over any concerns I may have. And I appreciate her, considering how most Dr's now are rushing you out of the room. The pride in her work shines through her and her personality every visit. They don't make doctors like this anymore. Thank you Dr. Kim Schmitt.
After seeing Dr. Schmitt one time she referred me to a sleep center. I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. Dr. Schmitt prescribed a CPAP. After just two days I noticed a tremendous amount of energy. The CPAP has helped me think clearer and allowed me to focus better at work. Thank you Dr. Schmitt for changing my life to the better. Please contact Dr. Kim Schmitt for any sleep issues you may be having. I didn't even know I had any until seeing Dr. Schmitt.

Nursing staff was extremely rude, I sat in the waiting room and listened to the staff gossip/complain about other patients. Privacy is obviously not a concern in this office. I got attitude immediatly from the nursing staff and did not feel at all comfortable to put myself in this persons care Would NOT recommend to ANYONE.
