What People Say About Dr. Paul Schmidt, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I liked Doctor very much but would like to help him with his first impressions. Of course, he is not in practice for a frivilous popularity contest, but he does need some "sprucing up." He is knowledgeable and that is what counts. Doctor Schmidt's academic background is stellar. His wife/partner should be a catalyst in helping him with a new wardrobe and a bit of "savoir faire." I wish him the best of luck in his new adventure on the west coast of Florida or USA.

I am a nurse and have been in the care of various neurologists in my different states of residence for past 10 years for neck injury and subsequent headaches. Dr. Schmidt was the first and only physician to accurately diagnose and effectively treat my migraine disorder. He is sharp, well read, keeps abreast of all new treatments and studies, and he is confident enough to try new solutions until the right balance has been achieved - all with a gentle demeanor and a warm and friendly smile. A+!!

Didn't take time to clearly explain my mother's stroke. He also never addressed my mother at all during visit. Very poor bedside manner! Bad experience dealing with a neurologist, I should have done my work and search before seeing him.

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.

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!

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

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.

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!
