Although this is not specific to my most recent visit, I am still very grateful to Dr. Schmidt and his NP Rose Fjeld for identifying a blood pressure medication that was causing swelling in my legs and making the necessary change. I am very pleased with the care I receive from Dr. Schmidt and his NP's!

Dr. Schmidt and his NP's or his PA's have always taken time to listen and talk to me about my health. For that I am thankful as too many doctors/clinics do all the work on the computer and spend no time with the patient as in years past.

Didn't speak with Doctor after completing tests, only some assistant or whoever, who gave me the results verbably.

Dr. Schmidt is one of the best Doctor's I have. He has always showed compassion not only to my heart problems, but other problems I've discussed with him. He has gone out of his way to help me even on a Friday night and found a Doctor that was in net-work for me to perform a Triple A surgery. I trust him with all my problems and concerns.

*Dr. Schmitd is the best I have been with him for 30 years at least.

I have the highest regard for Dr. Schmidt and his staff. He has been my cardiologist for over 30 years. I have had many health issues, and he has contacted my other physicians when need be, and knows me as a person, not computerized information. He takes the time he needs with me, or I need with him. I have referred him to many friends and relatives. I dread the day he has to retire from his practice. Dr. Schmidt also has the best PA's and NP's whom I also trust with my health issues. He is the best!!!

I have only the best to communicate about them.

Again, he and the others are the greatest!
