Very good. Didn't have to wait even minutes in the waiting room and maybe 5 minutes in the exam room.

Oh my, this was such a wonderful experience! We tried a pediatrician before going to SCL, and they got our appointment time wrong (we had a note card that said 9am and when I got there, they said our appointment was 9:30... we finally went in a room at 10:00am, and the pediatrician rolled his eyes when our 2 week old daughter spit up on his purple sweater vest because now he would need to get it dry cleaned....). In comparison, everyone here at SCL was absolutely AMAZING to work with! So many smiles, very helpful, spoke clearly, and answered every question. What a wonderful group! Being a first time mom is nerve-wrecking enough but the doctor even went over what to do after hours and we were seen almost right away. I am so impressed!

my first visit to Dr. Schimke, having recently moved to the area. I was seen right on time and Dr. Schimke was very thorough in her questions and assessment of my health and in understanding my history. The support staff was likewise very professional and comfortable to work with.

I called with a question about a possible reaction to the prescription I was taking. I received a call back within two hours. I was asked to come in to verify it was not a side effect. I was scheduled quickly and seen almost as soon as I walked into the office. I was very happy with the amount of time it took to get checked.

Dr Schimke was very attentive and covered all of my concerns. Although I am still waiting for the referral coordinator to contact other offices, it seemed like there's a good process in place for doing so. The only small complaint or suggestion that I have is too make new patient paperwork available (to print or submit online) prior to the appointment; I think it would be helpful for patients to have plenty of time to fill it out thoroughly beforehand.

One of my best experiences with a health care provider. The nurse who assisted Dr. Schimke was also excellent!

Very good experience.

Jan 5, 2018

This was my first visit. I had needed a prescription refill. The doctor was amazing. At my last dr office, I never saw a doctor in all my visits. It was always a PA. i was delighted that I actually got to sit and talk to a doctor! She asked me many questions and listened to concerns that I had. I feel like I was in very good hands.

Prompt comprehensive care during visit. Will recommend to other family members.
