Dr. Schmitt is a traditional pediatrician who practices fairly conservatively. I appreciate knowing the medical establishment's recommendations straight up; I can then make my own decisions with that knowledge. She does not profess to practice alternative or eastern influenced medicine so not sure why she should be criticized by one reviewer for that. She can come across as to the point or busy (because she is and has been covering an understaffed clinic), but is very willing to see patients as often as necessary.

Shockingly poor judgment and care. Doesn't listen. Schmitt misdiganosed a (later confirmed) allergic reaction as a large, infected burn, mocked us for what she erroneously assumed were "hippie" ideas regarding healthcare, accused us to social service agencies as "rejecting conventional medicine" when we have done no such thing, as our other, regular and excellent doctors can attest. Prescribed the wrong antibiotic, which caused another reaction, without bothering to culture the mild infection, and was in such a state that she could not read the allergist's business card, which clearly stated his afficliation and board certification, and accused us of taking our daughter to an alternative healthcare provider whom she obviously did not like. It took me awhile to understand what she was talking about. Hysterical, bizarre behavior caused us a great deal of trouble; her dangerous misdiagnosis could have caused something far worse had we not had the sense to immediately leave her practice.
