Dr Howard was awesome!!! She is so nice and I felt very comfortable with her. The office staff however, was very unorganized. The door was locked when I arrived for my 1pm appt. Ok fine, no biggie. I’m an established patient but still had to complete the registration paper work. That’s fine, but i had to do it on my tiny phone! You know hard it is filling out paperwork on a phone. It took forever and most of it is required. The lady had my insurance card but i needed it to complete it on my paper work. She says, well u can skip that part. I says, it doesn’t let u. Then she said oh ok then gave me my card back. They didn’t give me a cup to pee in like u do when u get checked in. So i was all naked in the gown and THEN the lady goes, can u leave a specimen? U can have your gown on. Ok let me walk out there in the hall out with my ass out. Yea no thanks. She had to get all my history again because they changed systems. That’s not my problem, I’ve been with this doctor for 2 years. I don’t remember when i had this and that, all my history is already there with this doctor. It was frustrating. But i did love the doctor. If it wasn’t for her i would find a new gyno office that’s more organized.

I always love my experience here! There’s a reason I’ve been coming to Dr Schmitz for over 20 years and she never fails to disappoint! The entire team is amazing.

I waited for over an hour in the exam room before being seen. I also felt I got very little information regarding a surgery I didn’t even know I needed until my appointment, and I didn’t get the opportunity to have my mother with me when it was explained. It was my first gynecologist visit so I didn’t know what was normal or what questions to ask. I’m sure it was just a busy day in the office, I just hope it’s less weird next time.

Quick, friendly. There was a urine sample in carosel when I was the first patient of the day - assume from day before. That was a little disconcerting. No complaints about my experience, just felt like the office could use more space/updating to be more comfortable. :)

Nurse Howard was excellent at talking me through my quick procedure, taking her time to make sure everything went smoothly, explained things in clear detail and made sure that I was good to go! She is very thorough, has excellent bedside manner, and clearly cares very much for her patients. She definitely put me at ease and I felt confident that I was in good hands. Would absolutely recommend her to meet your women’s health needs!

I was absolutley in awe by my experience at this location. The way I was treated compared to my last OBGYN doctor from San Antonio was night and day. I felt everyone who worked there was super sweet and made me feel so comfortable. I also loved Ms. Barbara Howard and the way she handled my situation with me being super anxious. She answered all my questions with pure love and kindness. I appreciate her so much and will definitely be coming back :)

I went in to have my IUD removed and was very worried because I have had it removed in the past and it had hurt so badly! But with this visit the removal didn't hurt at all and I felt very accommodated during my visit by the staff.

There was a bit of a wait but the front office was understaffed the day of my appointment. The team did their best to accommodate all patients - the nurses and staff worked together to offload some of the admin work from the one person behind the counter. Overall, impressed. My experience with Dr. Howard was great. I was a bit nervous because I recently moved from Chicago and loved my OBGYN but Dr Howard took the time to listen, asked questions, and provided thoughtful insights. She was able to make me feel extremely comfortable in my first appointment with her. I found her to be knowledgeable, engaging, and thorough. I’d absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a new doctor.
