I've been taking my mother to her appointments with Dr. Schmitz for the past few years, every since she was no longer able to drive. We are both always treated so nicely by him, his nurse, everyone! Great doctor!

I saw Dr. Schmitz for the first time 5 years ago for my colonoscopy after I turned 50. I felt perfectly healthy but was diagnosed with colon cancer. The care and compassion I received from Dr. Schmitz is unmatched. He made sure that my wife and I understood everything about the diagnosis and the steps I would take going forward. Dr. Schmitz provided comfort in a very scary situation and I refer all of my friends and family to him.
