Patient Comments (11)
Progressive, forward-thinking physician who is up to date on the latest studies and advancements in neurology and medicine in general. Is proactive in seeking natural alternatives to drugs. Kind, caring and a true listener of her patients.

I owe my life to Dr Schneider and her staff. Dramatic? Maybe; but I have MS and everything is dramatic.

My wife has been seeing Dr. Schneider for about 4 months now and already her seizures are under better control and she is feeling better. She is taking a lower dosage of her seizure meds too. She recommended some dietary changes, which mostly involved avoiding any artificial sweeteners and caffeine. Just that has helped a lot. She also recommended some natural supplements to help with her headaches. That is also helping. She seems compassionate, attentive, and understanding. Great staff too.

I've been a patient of Dr. Schneider for over 15 years. That alone should tell you how pleased I am with her care. Over those years I have always found both her and her staff to be very professional, polite and respectful . Dr. Schneider is very knowledgeable and understanding. She is a doctor who cares .

I have been a patient of Dr. Schneider for about 13 years, being treated for multiple sclerosis. I have always found Dr. Schneider to be extremely knowledgeable about the latest treatments, a physician who treats the whole person, is an excellent communicator, is very caring, and is always very professional. In addition, her staff members are outstanding.

Dr. Schneider is very caring and treats her patients with respect. I have had multiple issues and she has continued to help me. I have been a patient for more than 4 years - I have been able to sleep better thanks to supplements and my nerve pain has subsided with a change in my dosages. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of neurology.
in Moorseville, NC |
I suffer from migraines. I was referred by a neighbor and I am very happy with my care. Dr. Schneider listened and made some nutritional suggestions and changed my medication. I am feeling so much better with far less outbreaks. I have never been disappointed with her or her staff. I highly recommend

August21,2016 I saw her for sciatic nerve pain and she diagnosed my symptoms of the pain right away.She prescribed the right medication for the pain and she is very knowledgable and very caring
in Davidson, NC |
we do not expect every doctor to know everything, but we do expect doctors to have sense of responsibility. Dr. Schneider does not have the sense of responsibility. She does not know how to diagnoses, she does not explain the situation and put patients in the endless darkness. If you have real medical issues, please find other doctors.
Hi Kala, we are sorry that you did not have a good experience at our office and strive for the highest quality of care to our patients. Please contact our Office Manager, Dina Thomas if you would like to discuss the matter further.
