Dr. Markus H Schmidt has the following 3 specialties
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

They threw my records out. They stated it had been over seven years and they throw out any records older than that. What a shame! Most sleep Drs keep their records indefinitely.
I went to Dr. Schmidt for a second opinion about my sleep problems (idiopathic hypersomnia). I had already had a sleep study done at another clinic but it was tied up in insurance appeals to get the appropriate medicine- we figured having a second opinion on my condition would help the appeals process. Dr. Schmidt's desk staff is not very friendly and had to ask one another how to add new appointments times to the calendar, spent ages on the phone, etc. The sleep study staff, however, was wonderful. Very friendly and courteous. The man who took my information before meeting the Doctor was quite friendly as well. Taking my information was rather pointless, however, because the Dr. did not read the report and asked me the exact same questions. He diagnosed me before even conducting the sleep study and did not explain the results of the test well at all. My mother and I asked numerous questions comparing this study to the one I had completed previously and the Dr. either evading the question or remarked, numerous times, that since he did not conduct the first study he did not consider it in his diagnosis! (The first test taken 2 months previously was more severe than this one which we were curious about). The Dr. then decided, even though I had been diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnia by my family physician and the first clinic that I was tired due to depression. As the average time it took me to fall asleep in the first sleep study was 2 seconds and the second study was still highly abnormal, this seemed dumb to me. Nevertheless, he prescribed some medicine to "help with the depression." This medicine, (even google will tell you this!) interferes with another medicine I am already on! I took it for 4 days during which my problem increased substantially- I was sent home from work because I fell asleep in the break room within 1 hour of arriving. Since even a google or WebMD search shows that the prescribed drug not only interacts with another medicine I am on but can Cause Drowsiness, I cancelled by followup appointment and never went back.
