There are many benefits to going to a practice that is a Medical Home. Newsweek featured an article on April 16, 2012 entitled "The Doctor Will See You If You Are Quick." This article focuses on how your health might be impacted by going to a doctor that does not focus on you. Dr. Schmidt is committed to providing you with the best possible care. He takes the time to talk to you about your symptoms and is dedicated to your health and well-being. This is why he adopted the Medical Home concept.

Nothing is more important to us than your health! A critical step to good health is expanding your fund of knowledge. Let us help you improve your health by introducing you to informative and user-friendly web sites on our Healthy Links Page. Links for some of our favorites are given below.
Dr. Schmidt is committed to providing superb primary care by working in close partnership with his patients, listening carefully to their concerns, and by coordinating the services provided within their “medical home.” Dr. Schmidt is also committed to using state-of-the-art patient-friendly information technology whenever possible to make access to medical care as convenient as possible. As an example, the Practice has a “patient portal” with a certified software provider which allows patients to make appointments over the Internet and get lab results faster. The portal also provides reminders to obtain immunizations and age-appropriate screening tests.
Another example is the use of electronic medical records which will improve the portability of patient information throughout the extended medical home while protecting patient’s privacy. These are just a few examples of what is meant by “meaningful patient-centered medicine.” Dr. Schmidt is dedicated to improving the quality of your life by giving you access to advanced medical care.
