I was very comfortable with Dr Schmetterer. I had been to 2 other doctors who couldn't figure out my problem and he went right to it. With one treatment my legs are much better.

I was referred to him by my family Dr . He was rude and clearly thought of himself highly and honestly didn't treat me well at all! I would never recommend him to anyone!

Saw the doc for leg swelling and pain. Turned out I had 2 different problems, with arteries and veins. He figured it all out and fixed both, some in the office, some outpatient surgery. Tells it like it is and delivers.
