Dr Schmitz is one the best neurosurgeons I've had both in Pensacola and Dothan. His ability to properly diagnosis me, (which 3 other neurosurgeons in Pensacola didn't). He also did surgery in me and I'm feeling wonderful again. To set the record straight on a preview review, Dr Schmitz did NOT lose his privileges at the hospitals in Pensacola. He resigned from the Meducal Center Clinic, and due to a non-compete clause in his contract he could no longer practice in Pensacola for 2 years. He was highly regarded neurosurgeon in Pensacola and many patients, including myself, miss having him in Pensacola. Pensacola lost a dedicated and helpful physician. Please people get your facts correct before you write stuff.
The staff tht I've met, Carol and Alex, are extremely professional and courteous. Dr. Schmitz is highly knowledgeable in his field and thourough in his efforts to make a diagnosis and a treatment plan. He is a great mix of conservatism and aggressiveness in treating a patient. He listens well and is patient with questions. I highly recommend him.
