Great doctor who sincerely cares for patients. Great bedside manner. He doesn't rush to mask pain with cortisone shots, rather he tries to study why pain exists.

Dr. Schmaus is a super doctor. He is an especially warm, caring person and a super doctor. His congenial,"bedside manner makes you feel very comfortable and like your sharing your concerns with a dear friend. On top of that, he is extremely knowledgeable about his profession. He has treated me for different ailments/injuries and his advice has been top-rate. I trust Dr. Schmaus implicitly and am fortunate to have him as my physician.

Dr Peter Schmaus was cordial and concerned about my orthopedic complaints. He carefully listened and analyzed my situation. He offered help and therapy and told me what I might expect in the future. Dr Schmaus did not rush me out of the office but instead was generous with his time and care. I highly recommend Dr Schmaus and ORTHOPEDIC SPINE & SPORTS MEDICINE CENTER, PARAMUS,NJ.

Dr. Schmaus has been my orthopedist for more than 20 years. He is knowledgeable, caring and compassionate and has never failed to help me. He will always go the extra mile to make sure I am doing well. I have recommended him to friends who have been very happy with him. And he always takes the time to make sure you fullt understand your medical problem. First rate doctor.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schmaus for about 4 years and am very satisfied with both Dr. Schmaus and his assistant Jean. I am always greeted by both with smiles and genuine interest in how I am. Although he takes a holistic approach, when i had a condition that did not respond to PT, he fast tracked my MRI and put me in touch with a wonderful neurosurgeon. I am recovering and very grateful for Dr. Schmaus for his wonderful care. Jeanne B.

My husband and I have been in the care of Dr. Schmaus for many years. He has treated my knees, hips, shoulders and spine. I call him my life saver. This is a doctor that is knowledgeable, compassionate, and kind. Many times I have walked into his office crying from pain and have left his office with a smile. I have never written a review on a doctor before. I have referred many patients to his office. At this time, my entire family are his patients. We adore him.

When seeking treatment for any orthopedic issue I look out for a number of details; The ease of making an appointment, the smiles & greeting from the front office staff to the medical assistant attending to your needs. Jean is Dr Schmaus' medical assistant since he started treating me for both knee & back issues over 4 years ago. When a medical team such as Dr Schmaus & Jean have worked together for years the patient benefits tremendously with the well balance skills both can offer. Thank you!

Been seeing Dr. Schmaus for the past 2 years for cervical disc issues. He's always been nothing but courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. He's always takes the extra time to listen to my questions and explains his course of action. He's also pointed me to different specialists that I needed to see (pain management/neurosurgeon). His nurse/assistant Jean has always been very nice as well. She always takes the time to ask how I'm feeling and returns my calls promptly when I have a question.

Dr. Peter Schmaus cannot be compared to any other doctor! He is incredibly knowledgeable, takes time with his patients and is very caring. I have been his patient for over 10 years now and I know that without his care, my life would not have the quality I am able to maintain. I have extreme and difficult spinal conditions and I know I can always count on Dr. Schmaus to be there for me and continuously help me. He is a most dedicated doctor and I am blessed to be under his care.P.Roth

I was recommended to Dr. Schmaus by my primary care physician. He had sent many patients to Him and he was quite satisfied with the results. I explained that I had emergency, was able to be squeezed in 10 minutes, got to see the doctor and treated my shoulder injury. He was very busy I was able to spend the required time to discuss the injury and a suggested treatment. His assistant was very accommodating and provided me written instructions and documentation on Application of the treatment.

Dr Schmaus has given me relief from my neuro muscular lumbar pain. He explained my condition in a manner that was easy to follow. I am still under his care and have confidence that he will continue to alleviate my pain. I would highly recommend him to friends and family should they have similar problems , just as my wife recommended him to me.
