I am a health care provider and Dr Schnell has been my choice for 3 decades. He and his staff provide a professional and welcoming environment capable of managing routine as well as emergency care, both of which I've experienced over the years. He has a pleasant bedside manner and provides state of the art care. I would recommend him to a friend or family member without hesitation.

Advertises cataract removal but not so. I told person who made appointment that surgery was reason for visit and that my optometrist had recommended this. At no point during filling out 5 pages of paperwork, 2 intense eye exams and explanation of procedure did anyone mention that due to arthritis (almost 70 years old) Dr. Schnell no longer performed surgery. He claimed he was required by law to charge a co-pay even though visit was pointless and I had to start all over again with another Doctor.
Pt was told that I have another MD who does the surgery & I would do the followup. Unfortunately the other physician would not accept her insurance.
