"while the doctor answered my questions, she never even introduced herself when she walked into the exam room - just started talking. When the exam was over she just left the room - did not say if i needed to discuss anything further with her nor did she say that reception would have a list of physical therapists for me. After a minute or two i stuck my head in her office to ask and she said to go to reception - She might be knowledgeable but I found her fairly dismissive"

"I trusted Dr. Schneider completely and she provided excellent care. Really, I can't say enough great things about her. My only feedback is to provide more information one what to expect when taking a drug like percocet for pain management - a better description of symptoms and also what to expect when you stop taking it (I experienced mild withdrawal symptoms, which was uncomfortable and unexpected)"

05/17/2016
"GREAT experience. She actually listened to me! That is so rare and so important to someone who has been recently been let down so hard by Doctors. I've been improperly diagnosed, treated haphazardly and taken further and further away from my goal of living a normal pain-free life again. These doctors didn't want to know what was causing the problem, they just wanted to treat the symptoms and couldn't even do that well. I feel like my faith in Doctor's has been restored by meeting Dr. Schneider. In the short time that I've been Dr. Schneider's patient, I physically feel better and know that she will get to the bottom of what is causing this chronic pain and recent hip immobility."
