Dr. Schima is always very concerned about my well being. If something is bothering me regarding my health, she is committed to getting it resolved and making me feel better.

Starting with a new doctor is difficult after Dr Hodgman left the practice. Dr Schima seems caring as I have multiple issues.

I didn't care for this provider at all. I researched her before my visit and she said she likes to get to know her patients. well she didn't take the time to get to know me or listen to what I had to say about my heart problems either. she too seemed rushed and just wanted to get me in and out. I didn't think she was kind nor courteous. I felt like she didn't care to hear what I had to say about my heart problems because I didn't get to say everything. she kept interrupting me.

I went basically for a routine checkup due to some stress I was feeling. I had a previous heart attack and thought it was a good idea. I had a physical with my family doctor and it was suggest by my dr to see Dr. Schima. It was suggested I have a stress test and Dr. Schima was very helpful in explaining the different stress tests and the process by which each was was performed. Dr. Schima also gave me a choice as to which one I would like to have.

Dr. Schima is a great doctor. She explains everything very well and answers all of my questions. She decided to have some lab work done while I was there, and 2 days later had me have another blood test because my potassium was quite low. I feel she is really on top of my condition and takes very good care of me.

My doctor (Dr. Schima) has always been honest and looks at all variables. She is a doctor who really cares about her patients and is not one to simply say "yes" or "no"; is so kind and patient; has the confidence and knowledge of the best in the field; provides such a caring presence to all people. She also spends quality time (and I don't know how she does it) with each patient...each person is important to her. She indeed is a role model in her medical world.
