Dr. Gerard Schmit has the following 1 specialty

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Think he suffers from mood disorder

Dr Schmidt is odd. One visit he is cold, cuts me off mid sentence, irritable and distracted. Next visit outgoing and joking(dry humor) and after previous visit wasn't sure he was joking. Acted like we were buddies for years. Unpredictable behavior. He dusk wrote prescriptions incorrectly which required delays due to pharmacy having to contact and clarify. The serious issue us it is IMPOSSIBLE to reach a staff member live and out of the question to actually get the doctor to respond to a phone call from pharmacist or patient. Total patient mill. Wrote scripts bill insurance and move the people through. No interest in collaboration and very disappointing. Saw him for almost a year, trying to stick with it because it is such a hassle to change doctors. The final straw was his continuing to incorrectly document my file and writing prescriptions incorrectly so often that my insurance company started asking why there were so many prescriptions for strange amounts rather than consistent 30 day scripts. When he was in his nice mode he was pleasant and easy going but something is just off with this man.
