Physician has given me hope!

Dr. Schnapps was absolutely fantastic. I have 22 years in Healthcare and he has the best grasp on how to provide me with care that May can help. I had almost lost hope. He listened and educated me on things and eager to proceed with care to find out how to help me function. I am so Thankful to have found him.

Dr. Schnapp absolutely amazed me with his knowledge of my illness. He was extremely caring and his knowledge astounded me! He has allowed me to look at life in a positive manner as before I didn’t think I could. Once my pain started getting under control, I could actually do small things around my home whereas before I couldn’t! Thank you Dr. Schnapp!!
