Ratings for Dr. Arno Schmidt
the waiting room is standing room only...when i finally got in, i was there for two and an half minutes and he was already opening the door.i was still asking him questions as he was walking out...i would not recommend dr smit, his business is one of the worst experiences i have had with an doctor in a long time... all this greedy dr cares about is making money...he does not care about his patients
The staff is simply terrible. Absolutely audacious. The doctor is great, spends two minutes with you and has a gift at classifying your issue. Surgery recovery went as planned. Good doctor, atrocious staff. If Karen picks up the phone, hang up and call again, and pray to God someone else answers. Goodluck.
Dr. Smitt is known as the Butcher according to people within the fraser health authority. He operated on my shoulder and made a mess of it. left me with very limited mobillity. I required surgery again Dr. Smitt did a terrible job I don't recommend him at all...
Had several procedure's by this surgeon, he is all about himself making money in his private Operating Room. I was charged $2500+ dollars just to get him to write a letter which was completely useless... He has no personality (Bedside manor) which in my opinion is part of a good Surgeons or Doctors treatment. Don't expect explanations about procedures or treatments other than what you can pry from him in your 2-3 minutes with him. He is all about the money.
Dr. Schmidt operated on my mother's arm after a nasty break. His bedside manner was not a consideration as we didn't want to be his friend, however, his surgical ability was very poor. She has poor flexibility and usage. As well, the removal of the 'cage' cast was done without warning or freezing and was an extremely painful procedure. We have encountered numerous past patients of this ex-verterinarian who agree he should have stuck with animals as his surgical outcomes are less than acceptable, including two friends who have had to have their knees redone and have learned from the second surgeon that the procedure used was faulty. Also he charged one of them $500 to produce a letter for the insurance company. Strongly recommend you get a second opinion if considering this doctor.
Very unprofessional staff at the reception. the younger girl did not want me to complete the patient questionnaire? and there is lots of information there the doctor need to be aware, the blond neurotic receptionist is very rude and her look is one of a very stressed out person. Dr. Arno Schmidt is scary and his bed manner is non existent. I heard Dr. Schimdt has ruined several people's knees in White So Be Careful with this Doctor and his staff @!
I agree with previous comment of Jan 09. No wonder he is easy to see. Saw me for 3 minutes. What does he know about my history to bring me to this point!!! Absolutely no consideration for someone who is a great deal of pain, to hear his useless comments and no information at all.
Should have deaf and dumb patients or maybe a vet as interaction with people is that of a doorknob...The worst. Not helpful or even saying anything about the procedure to be done or after the procedure!!! No wonder he is the easiest to get to see!!!
