Patient Comments (10)
Middletown, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Schild for more than 20 years. He is a well-educated, well-informed, highly knowledgeable clinician. He runs his own practice and works harder than any 3 drs combined! Be prepared to have some patience in his waiting room, as he does run behind often. His care is worth the wait. Thank you to his staff for always helping me, they have A LOT to deal with and always handle it with professionalism.

The office is poorly run at best. Waiting for his arrival is quite the experience. Must be nice to run a business with such little consideration for the people waiting.

There is a long wait time !! Once you are in the office he is attentive to your questions and concerns!
in Monroe, NY |
Dr. Schilds really cares about his patients. He has good knowledge on what meds go with what diagnose and he doesn't over prescribed. He takes the time to ask u several questions about certain things, tries to determine his diagnose, regardless what you've been diagnosed before.

Dr. Schild is one of the most thoughtful, caring, and insightful man. He has helped me so much. I am doing much better because of him.
in Greenwood Lake, NY |
Dr. Linden Schild is rude, unprofessional and seemingly uneducated in his practice always trying to push medication on me.A staff who is always rude and making billing errors and when you try to fight the bill they say you are acting threating never waiting less than 1 hour I finally seen the nurse practitioner until she quit she told me she everyone who left him to see her had the same complaints.I wonder all these people making positive comments and removing the negitives in the last few weeks
in Selkirk, NY |
Honestly he has never diagnosed me with anything but continues to give me mess which is a dangerous practice. He also makes me wait for hours and doesn't seem to care about me at all
in Chester, NY |
Every appointment I go to, I end up seeing him at least 2 hours after my scheduled time. He talks more about himself than about his patients and honestly is no help whatsoever to my mental health outside of writing prescriptions without knowing anything about my symptoms. He is simply a drug vending machine and nothing more.

I love dr schilds yes he has long waits but he is kind and caring and has helped me slowly progress with my anxiety and my depression ive been dealing with.
in Goshen, NY |
Dr. Schild misdiagnosed my son, put him on higher and higher doses of medication which not only exacerbated his illness but caused him to gain a lot of weight. Dr. Schild thinks very highly of himself and will tell you how wonderful he is. Just don't.
