Love this Doctor

Dr. Schmitz did two fusions at the same time on my lower back. He was wonderful. Had my up and walking with a walker the next day. Yes their was pain but nothing like it was before the surgery. I would advise any one to see him for all of the spinal needs.

Mr.

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.

After 2 unsuccessful surgeries in Birmingham, Dr. Schimtz was recommended to us. He sat at length discussing my medical situation with me. I had surgery 3 days later and received excellent care and follow up.

Dr. Schmitz performed a spinal fusion of two vertebrae in my neck. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure, etc. I reserved judgement on him until post surgery when I was in recovery and the hospital staff where giving me stellar reports on him. They know/confirmed.

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.
