Dr Schmidt explained all the possibilities, and then told me what he thought was causing my pain ; even drew a diagram so I knew exactly where in my knee the problem was

Dr. Schmidt is a good doctor who has performed surgery on me before. Just sorry that he joined West Med and has to recommend MRI service 15 miles away when there is one 1/2 mile away with quicker service

I knew of Dr. Schmidt through my husband, who had a hip replacement with Dr. S. So I was predisposed to like him, since my husband thought so highly of him.

I've known Dr. Schmidt for many years (he was my hip replacement surgeon) and I rate him as an outstanding professional and an extraordinarily fine human being.
