Too Strongly Indifferent
Self-verified patient of Dr. Kurt A Schroeder - Posted on December 28th, 2017
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 .

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.

Horrible doctor. Would never return nor would I recommend him to anyone. Did not help at all but cost me a lot of money.
Pawn off complications
A patient who verified they visited Dr. Kurt A Schroeder - Posted on July 22nd, 2016
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.

Could not be happier with my treatment with Dr. Schroeder and his assistants. Would recommend scheduling a appointment if you want a doctor who is straight forward and honest with you from the beginning. He did not jump me right into surgery he made sure I tried all alternatives first. At the end I did have back surgery and it has changed my life for the better.
Would not recommend

Dr Schroeder should be ashamed at the staff he has working for him. The Entire staff working for him are beyond unprofessional. No clue on what is going on. Phone calls not returned...and rude staff. Would not recommend seeing him, he can't get staff that are descent and on top of things it is pretty pathetic. No one cares for you here.
Waste of my time
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Kurt A Schroeder - Posted on June 8th, 2013
My surgeon's office contacted Dr. Schroeder's office to see if he performed the type of nerve test I needed. They said he did and that I could contact them to make an appointment. My surgeon and I both faxed over the prescription for the test I needed so that they would know exactly what I was coming in for. When I called to make the appointment I was told he only performed these tests on Mondays and Fridays. I had to wait a month to get an appointment. When I arrived for my appointment I gave Dr. Schroeder's office attendant the prescription for my test. When I finally met Dr. Schroeder he asked what I was there to see him for?! I told him I was there for the EMG test. He said he didn't do that test! He said that he would get me in right away, the same day, to the office that does do the test. Then he proceeded to tell me about the surgery he would do for me! He then escorted me to his office attendant and told her to get me in right away for the EMG test and how he would call me the following week to go over the test results. He left and it was if his office attendant hadn't heard a word he said. She said she would have the office that administers this test call me next week, thank you and good-bye! 1 - There were 3 copies of the prescription for my test submitted to this doctor who his office attendant said he performed. 2 - I had to wait for either a Monday or Friday to get an appointment for this test. 3 - Dr. Schroeder said he didn't do this test! Then he started to tell me how he would do the surgery when I had been sent by my surgeon for a test - only a test! 4 - It's been over a week and no one has called me for the test.
Great Surgeon, Horrible staff
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Kurt A Schroeder - Posted on September 16th, 2012
As a surgeon Dr. Schroeder is excellent, but has a horrific bed side manner, and is condescending and rude. His staff is difficult to communicate with and puts off a "bothered" attitude. I was scolded by one of his office staff, right in the waiting room, because I asked for a form to be filled out that my work required. I would not reccomend Dr. Schreoder to anyone because dealing with him and his staff is so difficult.
Relief, after 6 months of pain....
Self-verified patient of Dr. Kurt A Schroeder - Posted on August 22nd, 2012
I saw Dr. Schroeder many years ago, but can't say enough how much he helped me. After 6 months of taking handfuls of pills and my PCP only offering stronger pain killers etc, I fired my PCP, went to E.R. where I had a CAT scan which showed 2 herniated discs, E.R. gave me the referral to see Dr. Schroeder. Whithin days he clipped them off and I knew as soon as I awoke that the surgery was successful. I had endured 6 months of my leg feeling like it was broken and on fire, if I'd had a chainsaw, I'd have cut it off, the pain was so bad....
Knows his stuff

Accurately and quickly diagnosed my problem, saw me through temporary pain management and surgery. As others note he provides detailed diagnosis at a level you can understand and offers alternatives.

Here is a neurologist who was suppose to remove a benign tumor in my pituitary gland, but instead decided to remove the ENTIRE pituitary gland. I wouldn't recommend this Doctor for my dog muchless a human being!
