I was referred to Dr. Schindler by Dr. Nancy Kator, my former Gyn. She couldn't have picked a better dr. My first visit there...he complemented the work that the surgeon had done in 1997, when I had my Colon / Cancer surgery. Most drs. will not do that. explains the process very well. I will definitely recommend Dr. Schindler, if some one needs a G. I. dr.

My husband sees Dr. Schindler. I've accomplanied him to three major procedures, and each time we've had a wait that ran 1 1/2 to 2 hours in the waiting room. Patients were stacked up like plans at O'Hare. Dr. Schindler seems to be an excellent doctor, but unless you enjoy cooling your heels in a waiting room for two hours after fasting for one or two days, I'd strongly recommend against this practice.
