His extensive training and diverse experience have equipped him with the skills to handle a wide range of surgical procedures and patient needs.

Philosophy of Care

“Patient Centered Care is a philosophy that is engrained in me through out my training and career. Individualized care, tailored to specific needs of the great variety of patients. The goal is to make the experience and process as successful and least stressful as possible,” says Dr. Schneider. His commitment to personalized care aligns perfectly with OMC's mission to treat every patient like family, providing big city healthcare services with small-town hospitality.

Dr. Schneider was drawn to Osceola Medical Center because of the people and staff he encountered during his visits. “The people/staff that I have encountered there are clearly like-minded; with the mentality of Patient First care. An extremely ‘can do’ facility and culture,” he shares. This positive environment and shared commitment to patient care made OMC the perfect place for him to expand his practice and serve the community.

A Passion for the Outdoors

Outside of his professional life, Dr. Schneider enjoys a range of outdoor activities that highlight his love for nature and the beauty of Western Wisconsin. He spends his free time gardening, managing his wooded property, birdwatching, swimming, playing basketball, and golfing. A self-proclaimed "bird nerd," Dr. Schneider loves identifying birds by sight, sound, and flight, reflecting his deep appreciation for the natural world.
