Patient Comments (4)

After several misdiagnosises by other cardiologists, Schnitzler figured it out. My mother would not still be here if it wasn’t for him. He listened to what both of us had to say when others did not and was able to treat her correctly.

Very conscientious. Works long hours. See's patients in the hospital. We saw him at the Methodist at 7700 Floyd Curl Dr. If he admits you to the hospital, yourself primary Dr must be requested by Dr Schnitzler if you want him to be included in your care.

Best cardiologist in the country. (Big Period) Need to find a way to allow him to live to be 150. :) He will be very difficult to replace. Saved my life and many others. Unbelievable work ethic. He is up at 3 a.m taking care of patients after a full day. Some complain...more
