Dr. Sarah E Schmitt 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.

Dr . Schmitt has been my neurologist for the past 3yrs. She has walked me through all of the possible medications that would be good to try and treat my Complex Partial Seizures. She is also a doctor who does not force her opinion on you. She listens very well to what I ask of her and gives me the best option available. There was a possibility that I would have to have another surgery but once I told her that that was not something that I wanted to do she was willing to try me on another medication. Once I found that I was really unable to swallow the new medication and asked if I could be switched to a medicine that I had been prescribed earlier but didnt like because it made me very tired she was more than willing to work with me. Since that time I have began to feel alot better. I have been on the new medication for about 6wks and have only had 1 seizure. That in itself works well for me. I cant wait to see her to let her know that I appreciate her taking the time out to listen to my concerns.

My Wife

My wife has had her as a Nurologist for some time now, and she has always been very responsive to any of our questions or inquiries. We never feel rushed when seeing her. She's always looking for alternative methods to treat my wife's seizures, so it's not always "let's try more meds".
