Dr. Shimmel is so thorough and cares about his patient. He is a wonderful doctor who has outstanding communication. His knowledge is extensive. He is truly an excellent doctor and such an asset to Northwestern Medicine.
Doctor Schimmel is thorough, explains things very well, asks lots of questions, and gives me confidence...and is pleasant. He also collaborates well with my other doctors. So far I have been taken care of well
I met with Dr Schimmel after I had angioplasty performed on me about 3-4 months prior. I knew of Nm cardiology's outstanding reputation and was considering changing cardiology practices for care. ..Dr Schimmel expressed a deep interest in my overall wellness. He took much deeper interest in understanding my lipid blood panel and proactively addressing a plan to reduce my health risk and improve my overall health. He clearly and thoroughly explained what was happening with my coronary system, explained what his recommended changes in meds was meant to address, and laid out a comprehensive plan that "if this didn't improve in my bloodwork in 6 weeks, Here is what we change in meds we will try ... and if the bloodwork showed improvement in 6 weeks, then this ..."..My understanding and confidence level in being in Dr Schimmel's care was off the charts higher than I had imagined going into his consultation. My prior cardiologist was known to be a very good doctor, so how much better could Dr Schimmel be? ..All I can say is "wow!!!!" What a difference! Now I understand what a world class doctor is about after meeting with Dr Schimmel. I am thrilled to have taken the time to consider meeting with Dr Schimmel. He has instilled a real energy, optimism and excitement in me as to getting healthier as a result of his clear explanation of what is going on and how he can help my body improve its current state.
Dr. Schimmel took his time with me to review my test results and care options. He answered all of my questions and worked with me to develop a follow-up plan to monitor my condition. His approach really helped to significantly lessen my fears that existed going into the appointment, I would also note that the office intake staff were very nice, responsive, and helpful in managing the front-end process. Finally, I found the online tools made available for filling out forms to be really easy to navigate and very efficient. All around, it was a great experience.
Dr . SCHIMMEL is an excellent doctor in terms of his knowledge of the subject and his treatment of the patient. I am very satisfied with doctors treatment and caring for my conditions and listening to me very carefully. I would highly recommend him with no hesitation.
Fine gentleman. Good personality, patient and interested in my well-being. He is very reassuring with his advice and imparts judgment in a very simple medical way for easy patient understanding. Very good physician as he shows a caring manner.
