We had an excellent experience with Dr Schneck! Very personable, extremely well educated and told us exactly how it is and what we needed to hear (good and bad!).
hospital was good and Doctor listens to us and explains better everything.
it is pretty good
He is definitely very good, knowledgable Dr. I'm a computer scientist who doesn't understand a single thing about medical and my kid was diagnosed with his condition and Dr Schnack explained very well what it is in first two visits in fact in second visit he drew a diagram which made it very clear. In the third visit I had less understanding of what's going on, but I knew my next steps. May be cause he needs to diagnose before telling us (which is what the next appointment is) but I was little disappointed
I was very pleased with the care and concern Dr. Schneck provided for my son.
Dr. Schneck provider is very knowledgeable about his specialty. He was able to explain things in an easily understandable way.
Best doctor we have ever had. Dr. Schneck takes the time to explain our sons condition and his progress. We will be very sad to see Dr. Schneck go once our sons is healed.
Dr. Schneck is a skilled surgeon who has helped my son tremendously. We are so thankful our son is in his care.
did not even see Dr schneck. seen someone else even though we seen Dr schneck was there
Excellent care! He provided information concerning our child's medical condition that had not been provided to us by previous doctors at WVU Medicine.
Dr. Schneck is absolutely incredible. Our daughter was born with a complex and rare defect of her urinary tract and he has given her the chance to live a perfectly normal life through his amazing surgical skill and expertise. He treats her like shes his own, always makes time to see and talk with us and answers questions anytime we call. We can not possibly thank him enough for everything he has done for our daughter and our family.
Dr. Schneck has been taking care of my daughter her entire life. He gives us his utmost attention, and has a sincere and genuine interest in her progress and her quality of life. I have recommended him to several friends and family members over the years.
We have been seeing Dr. Schneck since our son was 3 weeks old (He is now 9 months). My husband and I always appreciate how straight forward he is with explaining our son's condition and how he does it with both clarity and compassion. Through some challenging times we always felt comfort in knowing that our son had the best doctor and was receiving the absolute best care. We will forever be grateful for Dr. Schneck.
Dr Schneck was really great! one of the best experiences with a doctor in a long time. He seemed to genuinely care about the health of our son now and in the future while not trying to over test or over prescribe something for him-which seems the way doctors are these days. I can not recommend him enough!
everything was great.
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Schneck. He is professional and has a really good rapport with my child. He is very knowledgeable and and speaks from obvious years of experience. I feel that he truly cares about my son and I trust him completely with my son's medical care. He is very personable and explains medical terminology in a way that is easily understandable to a parent.
everything was great!
Very pleasant experience with both Dr. Schneck and his assistant (sorry, I forgot the name)
Dr. Shapiro, she was a resident who introduced herself and asked for permission to exam my son. She has a great bedside manner Dr. Schneck was really personable, thorough and felt comfortable with the plan of care
Very kind and respectful. Was gentle and took time with our son (20 mo)
the doctor and his pa were wonderful! very helpful and caring.
the dr has either a PA or a nurse practitioner either way she was wonderful. she saw us first. she was great with us and my son
this was by far the best doctor visit we have ever had.
Dr. Schneck has always provided great care for my son. He is a great surgeon and I trust that he does all that he can to help my child. He has always been honest and up front with us.
Very patient, friendly and extremely knowledgeable doctor. He is always kind to my son and speaks with him in a nice way. Wonderful and value the time that he spends during our visits.
Everyone was very nice and helpful.
The staff here was the best I've seen in a long time. Both the Dr and the PA were great with my daughter and explained every step to us. They went above and beyond to accommodate us and were very fast with the follow up. I am very impressed and will be comfortable coming back in the future
We were provided with excellent care & would refer this provider to family & friends!
Dr. Schneck and his resident WALKED OUT OF THE ROOM after they told my son that he would need to have surgery. My son began to cry and started asking questions and Dr. Schneck and the resident LEFT THE ROOM! They did not answer my sons questions--the questions were very typical for a child facing a surgical procedure. I was told that the providers were too busy to come back to our room and engage in a conversation with my child, that I needed to schedule another appointment to have this goal accomplished. I believe that this is poor form and despicable bedside manner. I can't entertain questions about hernia surgery because I have never completed hernia surgery. I am still very upset about this appointment. Children's Hospital professionals should be able to engage in meaningful conversations with Children.
doctor explained everything we need to know to make informed decisions. he didn't rush through any information and we feel confident he is very competent to take care of our son.
Dr. Schneck went above and beyond to listen to symptoms that were unrelated to my daughter's appointment with him. His thoughtful and genuine concern for her overall health was breathtaking and completely unexpected. Any parent should engage Dr. Schneck' services with the assurance their child will receive outstanding care and follow up.
Dana the doctors nurse was very friendly, helpful and informative. the doctor was nice as well
Dr. Schneck is wonderful. He is easy to talk to, energetic, and I feel that he cares about my son and our family. I trust him.
loved the dr will definitely come back to see him or recommend him is we or someone else needs a dr in his field
Dr.Scneck was very helpful and went above and beyond
We are always impressed with the level of care offered by CHP. Our local small hospitals do not come close to what we experience in Pittsburgh.
The information given was very clear and concise. The PA was very helpful in explaining results and listening/answering related questions. The Dr. seemed to have been a bit rushed with us, but we did not have any immediate concerns to address, so that may have been a factor.
Dr. Schneck is by far the BEST doctor that my husband and I have ever had. He really takes care of his patients and explains everything that is going on with your child in terms you understand. We will miss him when our son's condition is cleared up!
We were impressed with Dr. Schneck. He gave us the information we needed and I trust his expertise.
excellent. Dr and assistant great. very friendly and personable.
courteous and polite
The nurse practitioner paid attention to our issues and explained exactly what was going on and a course of treatment. She was thorough and spent time helping us.
THE DOC WAS A GENUINE PERSON I LIKED THAT FELT VERY COMFORTABLE WITH HIM AND HIS PA GREAT EXPERIENCE
First time at this hospital & with this provider - just wonderful all around! Everyone was friendly, professional, and beyond helpful!
Dr Schneck did surgery on my son for hypospadia repair in December. He is confident and knowledgable. My only complaint would be our experience will central scheduling. When I called to schedule the post op check up in wexford, I was told he would not be there until May. Dr. Schneck was surprised I was told this as he stated that he frequently sees patient in that office. We are from Erie, clearly an appointment in Wexford would be much easier for us!
I was extremely impressed with this provider. My child was scheduled within 24 hours, and the receptionist called ahead of time to let me know everything we would need to bring since we were travelling 3 hours for the appointment. The doctor was knowledgeable, and the PA was friendly and informative.
One plus hour wait time past appointment time
He is wonderful with both of my children and always makes sure I understand completely all information provided
I was impressed with the Doctor and the Nurse practitioner. Considering that my child is 2, their interaction was wonderful!
he was good. my daughter's checkup was her last one due to everything looking fine so I didn't talk too much about things with him. I felt a tad rushed but I think he was running behind since we were waiting for over a half hour.
Great visit with Dr. Schneck
We are so glad that we choose this health provider Thanks a lot!
dr schneck is an amazing doctor. he was approachable, spent the time needed to answer all our questions. we felt extremely comfortable with his knowledge of our son's issue. awesome doctor.
We were in the exam room quickly and seen by the provider BEFORE our scheduled time. The entire staff was very kind and courteous.
Dr. Schneck is great!
Nurse Dana was absolutely perfect, such a great CRNP!Dr. Schneck diagnosis was spot on and he resolved lived our 8 week mystery in a couple of minutes.
great overall appointment
Dr. Schneck and Dana were excellent ! Very patient and kind . Reviewed all of her labs and tests with us ! Excellent care !!!!
Dr. Schneck and his Physician assistant were so kind! This was our first visit to this office and we were very pleased.
Dr. Schneck was very professional and very friendly, which helped to put us at ease. He went above and beyond and gave us information and answers that we didn't even know to ask for. The CNP was also very professional and very friendly.
The nurse that saw my child before the doctor was amazing. Answered all questions. Took time to explain and even came back a second time. The doctor was hurried and rushed through things like they didn't matter.
Very professional and knowledgeable about my child's symptoms
Dr. Schnek was great! Very friendly and knowledgeable. I was glad he was who took care of my son
The nurse practitioner was very thorough in explaining what was going on with my child. She explained things in a simple way that made it very easy for us to understand.
Dr. Schneck has been seeing my daughter since birth. He knows her medical history and knows us. He gave us as much time as we needed to discuss all of our questions and we never feel rushed. He shows great concern and compassion for her quality of life and for helping her in any way he can.
not bad very good
Great Doctor and assistant

Dr. Schnek is a FANTASTIC provider I'm glad he is taking care of our sons issue.
