Michael A. Schmidt, MD, FACC

Philosophy of Care

In my practice I instill a “minimalist” approach with each of my patients. I only recommend medications and procedures that make my patients feel better or live longer and utilize a preventive strategy of care that incorporates nutrition and exercise.
