Doc removed my husbands gallbladder and repaired a hernia. It went very well both times. When i called after hours asking dumb questions a worried wife asks they were pleasant and patient. I have to have my gallbladder out now and i wouldn't go to anyone else.

Dr. Schmidt operated on my husband. Great doctor. HOWEVER, my husband was to go back a week later to get stitches out. Dr was away, so had to wait few days (not a big deal). Day he went to get them out, waited 60 minutes in waiting room & 30 minutes in exam room. Dr. came in, said everything looked good and he wanted to wait ANOTHER WEEK to remove. Crazy! Went back today, waited 90 minutes in waiting room. Completely ridiculous. Losing 4 hours of pay at work just to get stitches out.
