About

Bio

I am originally from Michigan. I attended both college and medical school at Wayne State University. I have been in private practice for 30+ years in Internal Medicine. My interest is women's healthcare, wellness and preventative medicine. I am married to Dr. Richard Schneider who is also an internist with a specialty in Integrative Medicine. We have three children none of whom are physicians, however are in healthcare related fields. My main interests are women's health and wellness . I treat a variety of disorders including hypertension, heart disease, pulmonary disease, asthma, abdominal pain, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, thyroid disease, and a variety of other disorders related to the human body. I look forward to working with you.
