She's the first one to confirm that's she's had other patients become ill after flu or pneumonia shots as I had a terrible cold/cough after seeing family dr and getting those shots. She treats total patient and has genuine concern for you.

Dr Schima is an excellent care provider. She is calm, never seems to be rushed, she will spend as much time with me as I need. She also answers my treatment concerns with words that I can actually understand. I am very fortunate to have Dr Schima as my cardiologist

hands down felt great talking with both nurse and doctor both explained everything very well and used dialect that was understandable to someone not in the medical field.
