Ratio of Negative reviews are out of line from reality. I’ve been seeing Dr. Schneider for 15 years for depress/anxiety, ADD and opioid depend. Yes the appointments can be short; But he isn’t to blame, The US healthcare system is. He is atypical of most PsycMDs. But, the key to getting the care you need Is to realize that he practices medicine in a more collaborative way. For me this is very effective because I am constantly researching all my psychiatric conditions/related meds/side effects. When I see him I’m able to talk Intelligently about what is working, not working and adjustments which should be made and why. In the end I get the meds/care I need. If you’re someone who just wants to go to a doctor and get handed a script Without discussion, Then he isn’t for you. If you like Being involved in your care, then I would definitely recommend him. Just research your condition,treatments available, And when you see him be honest/respectful. He saved my life more than once!

Dr. Schneider became my doctor after my previous one went into private practice. Dr. Schneider is an "old school" doctor who cares about my situation and we both agree on the treatment for my case. Dr. Schneider reviews the efficacy of the medications each month and we always have a few minutes to talk. He is a consummate professional and very thorough about keeping my records up to date. It is always good to review medications to be refilled before leaving, to avoid any oversights.

Wow. Where to begin. Let me tell you, this guy is not the one you want to see. He belongs straight out of a movie. His behavior was like that of the mother in Requiem for a Dream, if you've ever seen it. He was grimacing (?), stuttering, and shaking the entire time, not to mention he was facing me with his eyes closed (or barely open) the entire time. I had to keep myself from laughing, but at the same time felt a good amount of concern, and was wondering if I should ask him if HE was okay.

Very strange behavior bordering on rude. Not organized, made me wait 30 minutes for my appointment and when I was finally in his office asked me to go wait outside so he could take a call. Then stated I didn't have an appointment, which he finally found on his schedule. Asked me "Are you crazy"? What kind of professional would act this way? I think he needs psychological help more than I do.

Spent very little time (less than 10 minutes) with me as a patient, one visit my appointment was delayed by him almost 1 hours, and then overcharged me citing the visit was longer than normal.

I've seeing him for 7 years now. I have been extremely happy with the service he has provided me over these years. Unlike most psycmds, who's just see you for a few minutes and give you a script for the latest drug the Pharma companies are pushing; Dr Schneider takes the time to listen to you, work with you on what meds would be best for your condition in a collaborative manner; Without having to deal w/ a ego-centric doctor Who just gives you a script and tells you to take it. No discussion..
