My family and I have been seeing dr Schmidt for over 15 years. The wait is atrocious, some of the office staff in both the front and back could use a few lessons about friendliness as people do not go there because they want to, usually it is an illness that prompts a visit, however, I would wait all day for a few minutes with Dr. Schmidt. He is by far one of the most kind, compassionate health care professionals I have ever known. He listens to what u have to say, takes his time even if he has a waiting room full of patients, explains everything even when u don't want to hear it and works with u to fix the problem without doing a bunch of unnecessary tests to protect himself. He understands that we are human and don't always do what we should but he DOES NOT shame u for some of the unhealthy choices we make in our lives, but he will tell u what those are without making u feel like a fool and says " it his responsibilty to tell u as your Dr." ugh. I absolutely hate the wait but I no it is worth a few hours of my time. I too have seen his Physician Asst.s and Nurse Practioners and have found them to also be professional and kind, and I always feel comfortable after my visit with them as I no Dr. Schmidt reviews every patients chart that is seen in his office as He has called me to follow up on some issues I may have had.

You do have to wait, so call before you go and see if they will call you when a room is ready for you. He does not rush you out of there!

He really Cares

Although some of his staff was unpleasant, the nurses were excellent, he is a great doctor. I recently recieved some bad news, and he was so worried for me that he called me at home every week to make sure I was doing ok. He was there everytime I needed him at the hospital. He truly cares about his patients.

Dr. Schmidt is quite simply one of the most professional and caring physicians in the San Pedro area. He spends the extra time to fully explain both the diagnosis and prognosis should you have a new medical issue, and will answer any questions you may have. He reminds me of the 'old school' family doctor; indeed, I know of patients he has checked on at their homes! I have been a patient for almost 10 years and his staff is exceptional...starting with Nancy and now Minna, Mary and Bridgette. You might spend a bit more time in the office than you expected, but keep in mind, Dr. Schmidt gives you the extra attention during your visit, which certainly makes you feel value as a patient!
