I saw Dr. Schmitt because I was concerned with my memory. He conducted both my initial and follow-up (10 months later) testing and I couldn't have been more pleased with a provider. He immediately made me comfortable and was so easy to talk with during both evaluations. He was both thorough and reassuring in his explanation of my results, and provided an understandable plan for next steps. Dr. Schmitt was respectful, caring, and empathetic throughout the process. He is an excellent clinician and I would recommend him to ANYONE searching for a psychologist.

I have worked with Dr. Schmitt for many years. The Alzheimer's Alliance of Smith County refer many patients to Dr. Schmitt and will continue to. He is professional, knowledgeable in his field, and cares well for those in his care.
