Not even sure where to start. I have 3 kids and have been coming to the Manchester Lakes office since me first baby was born 8 1/2 years ago. We've seen all the practitioners there through the years - and i adore them all, but Jennifer Schmidt stands out as the most personable, genuine, warm, loving, gentle and incredibly knowledgeable practitioner I've ever met. My daughter has asthma and recently had a bad asthma attack that could have landed us in the hospital. Jennifer (A.K.A "DR. Jen") treated my daughter in the office which enabled us to stay out of the hospital and put me at ease when I was a nervous wreck! She has this amazing ability to truly connect with the patients and parents. My daughter - who isn't a fan of doctors - adores Jen and has formed an emotional bond with her that Ive never seen with any other DR, and that is so important. There's pure trust there - not just with my kids, but me too. Thanks "DR. Jen" for being so amazing!

I don't even know how to start! Im a first time mom and really wanted to BEST for my daughter and when I tell Jennifer is incredible I can't describe it any other way. I started with her at the Lake Ridge office when my daughter was born and just had to follow her to Manchester Lakes when she moved over. I love her positivity and she's always smiling! Very professional and gentle. Im very pleased and blessed with the decision I've made and can't wait to continue on with this journey with her and her team. Highly recommend : )

My family & I love Jennifer. Shes been seeing my daughter Skylar since she was born. Shes taken good care of her at every appointment and my daughter just loves her. I would recommend her to anyone. We followed her from the lakeridge office to the manchester lakes office. I would never go to anyone else.

Jennifer was absolutely amazing! She was extremely engaging with the kids and I like the fact she was able to relate to me as a mom and reassured be about a few concerns I had. I really like that she was genuine and warm. She listened fully and she was not in rush. (I hate that.) That is something I really appreciated about my visit - she took her time and I can tell she enjoys what she does and knows the value in what she does. I highly recommend Jennifer - kind, caring, patient, and knowledgeable. Plus, the kids like her and was asking questions about her days later. We need more health care professionals like Jennifer!
