    Dr Schmidt has been the only doctor that I felt truly listened and cared about my concerns. I never feel rushed like I am just a number or he needs to get to his next appointment. He's personable and I have even started having other family members go to him.

    The entire staff and doctors at Lee Physician Group are welcoming, knowledgeable and do not rush the patient. They listen, research and then discuss options for condition I have been going to this clinic in Fort Myers now for over 4 years and enjoyed the mergi ng of doctors. When one doctor is not available, you can count on being able to see the other. The nurses, including Mary, make you feel like you have known her forever. You feel comfortable and not judged no matter what your questions are.
