Dr. R. Thomas Schmidt's Ratings
Dr. Schmidt is a very good doctor. However, he brushes off questions and comes across as patronizing and dismissive. Hugs and pats on the shoulder are nice but I prefer to be treated like an adult, with adult explanations to my questions.
He's my life saver. Have known him for 12 years. Removed cancer 5yrs ago and F/U every 6 mos. Love the hugs and positive attitude, as well as the no nonsense medical verbage. He's the best and I won't see anyone else. Great staff and great team. Always look forward to his visits.
If you want the BEST sometimes you may have to wait. Just remember if something happens to you he will take the same amount of time, care and consideration to answer all your question and concerns as well. He is the only surgeon I have met that will try to save your breasts if possible. I have been to a surgeon on this list who wanted to remove my breast. Dr Schmidt said "we can always remove but lets try this". To this day I STILL have my breast. That was about 15 years ago. I still have my check-ups as needed.
R. Thomas Schmidt is at St. Vincent Hospital and only does breast cancer surgery. And he's booked solid because he's good! He's warm and friendly and passes out hugs to his patients, and does fantastic work in the OR, too!
