Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I am a long term patient of Dr. Schnackenberg. Over the years, I have found him to be a very good doctor. He is a caring person and he listens to everything I want to discuss. He has always provided me with alternate ways of viewing events that disturb me. He has changed my meds from time to time and also increased or decreased doses as needed. I do not think he is accepting new patients, but I want to let people know that he really is a terrific doctor. I saw some negative comments on this forum earlier that I disagree with and felt compelled to share my knowledge and experience as Dr. Schnackenberg’s patient.

Absolutely awful doctor, prescribes the same medications for most of his patients, won't listen to your concerns, won't even look you in the eye when you're telling him about the negative side effects of your medications, has caused years of mistrust in psychiatrists. Horrible man!

He is terrible. Don't dare question his judgement, he will snap on you like a rattlesnake. He does not believe you when you tell him what side effects his prescribed medications cause.
