I felt the doctor was genuinely concerned about his patients well being and what course of treatment would be best. I appreciated that he didn't try to overexert my shoulder during my exam since he understood how much it hurt.

On paper, Dr Schnell looks awesome -just the guy to treat my torn bicep. Unfortunately, due to the draconian practices of his office staff, I was unable to make an appointment because they would not make an appointment without me providing my Social Security Number. I have had countless doctors over the past 50 years - nobody has ever required a SS Number. If you have insurance, that is good enough. Have these people been reading the news about identity theft? Dissapointed I can't see him!

I had a laminectomy 8 weeks before hip replacement. Then, I had acute physical therapy,, home therapy and finished up with outpatient physical therapy. I went on vacation after that and then came back for my eight-week check-up. I can't even tell that I had a hip replacement. I have no pain. My movement has been limited due to back pain but not hip pain. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Schnell. I also highly recommend any physical therapy you can receive following surgery.
