10/10/12 5 5 5 5 I have seen psychiatrists on and off for the past 15 years,but, I have never felt so lucky as to have a doctor like doctor schneider! Yes his nurse screened me,but yes she also refills my meds within 15 minutes of my calling and yes DR Schneider has gone out of his way on several occasions to call me at home on weekends when I really wasn't doing well. He doesn't take many patients but if your lucky to get to see him you win

24/03/12 1 1 1 1 I haven't seen a psychiatrist in many years but some recent events in my life have brought on a relapse of severe anxiety and depression. After some research online, I gave his office a call and was forwarded to his nurse. Apparently, she does some pre-screening over the phone where she had me go into specific details of my symptoms. She asked very personal questions that I would not normally tell a stranger over the phone, but since this was for a psychiatry appointment I wasn't overly offended but definitely uncomfortable. After, she took notes on these personal issues, she told me she would call me the next day to schedule an appointment. It's been a week and I have yet to hear back. I think this is extremely tacky, unprofessional and quite frankly only added to my anxiety and left me feeling violated. It's a great way to isolate your clients from the beginning. Sadly, due to her insensitivity I will not be seeking his help.

22/01/12 5 5 5 5 Dr Schneider has always been the "par excellence" of professionalism,coutesy,and medical care.I have been his patient for 17 years and he does not have a secretary,he has always had a NURSE! I know that if a patient fails to pay their bills or follow his advice for months on end,he finally will ask them to stop comming to see him.What a sad person wrote this last comment

11/01/12 1 5 1 1 DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR! I was treated extremely rudely by his obnoxious "secretary", who scoffed at me when I called to ask her to confirm my appointment. He refused to provide consultation on the medicine he prescribed, and after voicing my complaints to him he terminated his service to me. He does not care about patients, and only wants your money.  Respond
