How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Schneider was attentive and easy to talk to. She explained everything and was respectful and knowledgable. The only complaint I have is having to wait almost a 1/2 hour to be seen, and at the end of the visit, having to wait another 10-15 minutes for a machine to be available.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Schneider gave me a most thorough eye exam. She discovered a slight astigmatism and adjusted my prescription accordingly. My vision is so crisp and clear now. Dr. Schneider is very knowledgable. She answered all my concerns and explained things very clearly to me. Her kind and professional manner made me very comfortable. I recommend Dr. Schneider and plan on returning to her office for my annual exams and future cataract surgery.
