Too Strongly Indifferent

Having never met this individual prior to our appointment, I was impressed with his accolades. I was equally impressed with his attitude, but not in a positive manner. His mannerisms extrude a perceptual aura of curtness and indifference; lacking in any vestige of interpersonal skill or warmth. I've dealt with strong personalities all my life yet expected a more professional interaction than that which I encountered. When the good Dr. Schroeder climbs down from the pedestal he has built for himself and starts acting like a human being, he may find his reviews climbing up to join the high opinion he wraps himself in. I have canceled my appointments and will seek assistance elsewhere. The survey questions below are somewhat misleading. I spent the majority of my time with his staff and probably less than 10 actual minutes with him .

Great Surgeon

I have had 5 discs in my back and two in my neck repaired by Dr. Kurt Schroeder. I am 100% satisfied and would give him a 6 star rating out of 5. I wish he did shoulders.

Pawn off complications

Sadly this doctor says one thing and does another. He boasts about how he never has problems with surgeries he does. I had complications and was promised if problems continued additional tests would be done. He never did, instead he acted as if my continued pain and problems wasn't his problem. Said get a second opinion, but refused to give a referal. No doctor wants to take his liability which seems he tries to do so complications can be removed from him. He knows his stuff, but if you are one to tend to have problems after a surgery just know he will try to pawn you off to someone else.
