Dr. Schmidt has changed my life completely for the better. He helped me find back pain relief without surgery or pain pills and I am pain free 99% of the time. Before I had debilitating pain almost every day. He is wonderful to work with when you really want a solution, not just bandaids. He is a great doctor.

I would like to say that my care here has been top notch. The doctors and nurses are very good at what they do. I would refer anyone I know and care about to them.

New Life is one of the most professional medical clinics I have ever visited for any type of medical need. They treat you like a real person not a pay check. They go out of their way to see what is the best way to help you in a timely manner. I have been coming here for years and feel like I could tell the Doctor anything and he would go out of his way to help me. I really like the staff here and the building is always clean.

BioTE Hormone Replacement has changed my life. I have an interest in many things again. The staff at New Life are wonderful and caring. I am so happy I found them in Jackson. As I had been traveling to Memphis or Nashville for hormone replacement therapy.

Coming to see Dr. Schmidt has really changed my life. My lower back pain was almost unbearable. The treatments he has provided have made a complete difference. Dr. Schmidt is kind and caring. In addition, his staff also deeply care about the patient. God bless you all!

Dr Schmidt has helped me for several years with spinal stenosis and sciatica. I do think he does extra things that add to the cost... but again he has helped me. The trial procedure that he does seems odd, but I did find out that what he planned to do was going to help. I assume if it did not, he would not proceed with that plan. His staff is mixed. Some are kind and caring, some appear not to care. Alex is very nice, but I don't understand his function exactly and was not on my insurance.

Dr Schmidt is only interested in money and not helping his patients. no face to face contact to explain what he is going to do to help your pain. FOR HEAVEN SAKE DO NOT ASK HIM A QUESTION OR YOU WILL SEE THE WORST OF HIM. Alex the NP is just wonderful and so is the staff. After 5 months of torture. I got worse and stop seeing him. Please find someone that cares about his patients.

I came to my appt 15 min early, computers were down. When brought to the back, none of the staff were wearing name badges nor did they introduce themselves and tell me what was going to happen next. After I was positioned on the table to have a nerve block done, local anesthetic done, then steroid injection, it felt like lightening going down my leg, I was screaming and crying, he told me not to yell, 15 min later of torture, he walked off and offered no apologies, staff put me in a room alone

Nurse prepared my needed for the spinal injection so they could administer my sedative. She had complications finding my vein and still put it in and it wasn't in a vein. When I went back and they injected the sedative threw what was prepared it felt like it exploded where she tried pushing it in. I screamed and told them it wasn't in my vein and they ignored me and started the procedure. Needless to say I felt tortured and they wouldn't listen. I was in so much pain I had to go to the E.R!
Jackson, TN |
