Dr. Schmidtberg learned early on how the impact of a good physician can really change a life. After his older sister was diagnosed with a life-threatening condition, his first exposure to medicine was watching how her treatment plan successfully impacted her recovery. From that moment, he realized his career path was going to be in medicine. As an avid outdoor adventurer with a strong math and science background, Dr. Schmidtberg chose Orthopedics as his focus. During his residency, he was fortunate to have great mentors who encouraged his talent and interest in pursuing a hand and wrist specialty. “ I really gravitated to hand and wrist; that part of the anatomy is really interesting, and the outcomes are typically good. It feels great to help people in that way.” Says Dr. Schmidtberg.
“I really want to get to know my patient, aside for what they are seeing me for…I want to relate to them as a person first.” Treating hand and wrist injuries and fractures, carpal tunnel syndrome, lacerations, and many other conditions Dr. Schmidtberg strives to provide the most advanced, most caring, and most proactive patient experience possible.
