Dr. Schroer is a great surgeon! He did my surgery in September 2021 and I feel great. I had an ongoing issue that bothered me for years and was not sure if he could fix it but he said he will try and he did! I liked that he is very realistic and did not commit to fixing my issue verbally, until he actually was able to evaluate it laparoscopically. I also like that when we met for a first visit he already read the repots and reviewed my CT scans before speaking with me and the conversation was to the point and he offered solutions. Unfortunately I had other surgeries and some doctors waste patients time on multiple visits for something that can be done in one if they did their patient research, this is why I appreciated that this doctor did his research and came in the room with a solution. He is also partnering with a great anesthesiologist and team of medical professionals and my surgery experience was awesome. I would highly recommend Dr. Schroer if you need a great surgeon!
Dr. Schroer was very thorough with explanations and descriptions of surgery procedure. His professional demeanor gave confidence in the outcome, and we were not disappointed.
