Ratings for Dr. Hernan S. Schmidt
Self pay only and will string you along many appointments before ever getting to the medication management you scheduled for. Kept saying he would but never did, probably good for psychoanalysis but not medication management. If you are already ok with what meds you're taking, don't, will be over 1k out of pocket and still no 3 months of scripts.
This doctor = everything one seeks in a psychiatrist. Among 100 favorable adjectives I could use, I can say he is "present". Both Dr. Schmitt's mind AND body are in the room with you. In this delicate field, many doctors are simply not listening because they have heard it all before. Furthermore, Dr. S is also "accessible", giving all patients his personal cell number, advising we use it quote "anytime day or night". Psychiatrist are often deeply hidden behind so many layers of staff akin to "witness protection programs", a patient in crisis feels silly, embarrassed & afraid of "bothering" them outside any previously scheduled, billable time. I feel nurtured & trustworthy to have been given access to his voice or personal voicemail IF I am honestly at the end of my emotional rope. He exhibits other rare & old-fashioned values well worth his self-pay only fee I will scrape to find. He obviously cares.
Be expected to wait awhile for your appointment but this doctor is excellent. He takes the time to answer any questions you have, he doesn't rush you which may explain why patients wait a bit inbetween appointments. It's well worth your time to go to this Doctor. He has treated me successfully since day one. Very kind
