Specialties

Dr. R T Schmidt III has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Dr. Schmidt expects his patients to have a Clinical Breast Examination (CBE) every 6 months but his billing staff codes this procedure as a minor follow-up visit (99212) which is NOT covered by Medicare .

Patients deserve better

Doctor spends very little time discussing concerns in follow-up visits. Your lucky if you get to ask a question and even luckier if you get an answer Due to the nature of cancer and all involved with surgery, possible radiation and chemo, patients deserve better.
