Dr. Richard S Schoenfeldt has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    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.

  • Psychiatry

    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.

Best experience I have had with a doctor in a long time. Dr. Schoenfeldt took time to talk with me regarding my concerns and did a fantastic job explaining the tests necessary and how to proceed moving forward. I highly recommend him.

He is very rude to patients and has cut back on almost insurance companies that he deals with. He does not let you know that he does not take your insurance until you actually drive all the way to the office.

Dr. Schoenfeld did not listen to me when I told him that I had concerns about taking medications, because I have a lot of allergic reactions to medication. He still pushed a pain med on me, which has a bunch of bad side effects. He did not like it when I came back to see him and had not taken the medication. The thing is Dr. Schoenfeld is paid by the drug manufacturing company to push their meds onto his patients, this is why he has adds around the office for medications made by Eli Lilly. Don t be fooled by this doctor. Be smart and find another doctor if you are already seeing him. Don t ever just listen to what a doctor says and take it as the gospel truth, because many doctors give misdiagnosis to their patients, which can lead to bad results or death. I took the medication after I went back to see him, because he reassured me that it was fine, I ended up in the hospital. Dr. Schoenfeld is stuck in his old ways and can t deal with the fact that sometimes a patient might know what's best for their own body even if their not doctors themselves. Avoid Dr. Schoenfeld like the plague!
