My 93 year old mother had a large eyelid cancer. The lid was nearly gone after the surgeon finished removing the cancer. I don't know how, but Dr. Schmitt managed to recreate an eyelid for her. She is doing well and we are very greatful.

Very caring doctor. Took the time to listen and very complete examiner. Very much recommend.
Maple Grove, MN |
Very terse , I got the distinct impression that I was annoying him. In all fairness Dr. Schmidt seemed to be very busy and was not in the mood to give a complete overview of my condition, He also seemed not to have read the notes from the referring doctor He was not aware until I told him that I had plugs in tear ducts that had disolved. Referring MD told me that it would be his decision on what to do about the plugs.
in Wayzata, MN |
I waited for about a hour to see him. After meeting him and him taking a look at the cyst on my eyelid. He didn't waste anytime, he said he could remove it right then or I could make a appointment for a later date. I choose right then. He moved me to his surgical room numbed my eye and removed my cyst in 5 minutes. This man is probably the most competent doctor I've ever come across. I trust him and would recommend him to anyone. Both his assistants were very nice.
