I was having weakness for two years and he put me on a medication that got me so sick. Basically, he had no idea what to do. He never referred me out. I had to find someone who listens better.

He deserves less than one star.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schmidt for years. I would never change neurologists. He has always helped me, managed my diagnosis, help me understand each condition and he has been there for me when ever I need him. He has a very calm demeanor and help calm me when I am worried and upset. He is a hard working man with very demanding hours. His staff is just as supportive as he is. I will recommend Dr. Schmidt to my family and friends. Thank you so much Dr. Schmidt!

Truly the worst neurologist ever.

saw him for the first time in the hospital. He was friendly and efficient. Went to see him at his office for a follow up appt and was extremely pleased.

If there is a price for the worst neurology clinic and staff in the area, his clinic will win that prize.

I have been seeing Dr. Schmidt since 2016. He is a very kind doctor and cares about patients. Even though I'm a complex case, he listen and makes suggestions. I see him when I feel I need to and the office staff is friendly to me. Never had an issue

Dr schmidt is a very knowledgeable dr and makes sure he does everything he can to help. His staff are very friendly and understanding and try to do the best they can as they have many patients to help out also. I understand this fully as I also work in the medical field. Not sure why other people would say any different. I think treating others as you would like to be treated is a main factor as I have seen some people be very rude to the girls in the office as they are doing their best
in Port Saint Lucie, FL |
Not sure why so many people have trouble. I feel like they are talking about another person. Dr. Schmidt and his staff are always friendly and try to help as much as possible. He did an amazing job helping to figure out what was wrong with me.
in Port st lucie, FL |
Basically feel I've waisted months of my time trying to find a solution for my pain. The staff seems to have no clue what they are doing. Ive waisted months just trying to get an mri authorized. No follow up and messages are not returned from staff. I work in the medical field and the lack effort from this office is mind blowing. I want a dr and environment that is friendly and cares about the patient, not to feel like just another copay to collect. My advice to others, find another neurologist!
in Port Saint Lucie, FL |
I have read the other reviews and I'm a little shocked. I think he's a great doctor, very easy to talk to, andfrom my first visit he is really trying to figure out what the heck is going on with me
