“From day one, Dr. Schmidt reassured me that he would do everything in his power to get me walking again and rid me of this disease. He tells you like it is and what you need to do to beat this disease. He is very compassionate and so is his incredible staff. I would not be here today if it wasn't for the knowledge and skills of Dr. Schmidt.”

Mike Dougherty, Hamilton Township, NJ

“We learned of Dr. Schmidt through our son, a nurse anesthetist in Philadelphia. When we rushed up to Philadelphia for emergency surgery, Dr. Schmidt gave us immediate attention with greatest kindness. He is not only an excellent doctor but an equally fine person in whom we have the greatest confidence." 

Mrs. Herbert Shenker, Hollywood, FL

“Dr. Schmidt began treating my teenage daughter a year ago. What makes Dr. Schmidt an exceptional physician is that he puts his patients first, before any other related concern. He saved my daughter's leg when everyone else said the leg was lost. He gave her a chance. ”

Alicia Barker, Manhawkin, NJ
