Why Our Patients Love Us

Let me start off by saying I have had multiple procedures done by 3 doctors at Inspire (all very happy with) and the latest being a rhino with Dr. Schnitt who is truly one of a kind in all aspects of the medical field. I was completely blown away in satisfaction by the multiple things Dr. Schnitt had done during my procedure and recovery... that is above and beyond the norm for surgeons. the attention to detail, the genuine care to make sure the final result is perfect and who proved to me his reputation for his sympathetic bedside manner... the man actually drove to the office on Father’s day... on a Sunday night... from another city to help my recovery become more comfortable/less painful for me (completely for my benefit only). A surgeon who spent an additional 4 hours added to my surgery time so I would achieve the nose I really wanted. Trust Dr. Schnitt with your face!
