I met Dr Schimke today and I am thrilled having her as my advocate for my healthcare. She reassured me with my "interview" with her, she will alwas be evolved in my healthcare if I need a Specialist. That is very important to me. She was so attentive and listened to my concerns. We mutually decided to delete a few of my medications and see how I will do without them. I liked that as I don't want to be on more than needed. She reassured in was taking all measures to stay health. Five*

My daughter and I both see Dr. Schimke. I believe she is honest, has great perspective, and makes decisions 100% dependent of what the patient needs. We love her! She's great with small children as well as young adults.
