After seeing a couple of other doctors, we ended up with Dr. Schmidt, for my son's torn meniscus. He had surgery and in less than 3 weeks, was able to snowboard on our spring break trip with no problems at all. Amazing. On this same trip, I injured my knee as well and saw Dr. Schmidt as soon as we got back. No surgery for me, and I have a clear plan on what he has recommended to get me back in shape. So when other doctors are surgery happy, this one will take the time to figure out what is best for each individual patient. He is very kind, competent and thorough. The office runs as smoothly as I have ever seen a doctor's office run and these people are BUSY. I recommend him highly.
