I was so exuberant after this visit. Dr. Schroeder was thorough and thoughtful compassionate and honest. She listened and understood my needs and concerns. She offered me many alternatives to surgery and I am eager to pursue them. She was a second opinion and how she gave me hope. Dr. Schroeder acknowledged me as a whole person. Her care and respect were appreciated.I left this visit feeling hopeful and elated. Dr. Schroeder's sincere desire to help and heal the patient is so evident. This was a most positive experience.

Dr. Strauss Schroeder listened to my concerns and provided exactly what I needed for me to understand my options. I feel very fortunate to have had her treat my fracture.

The doctor was great and seemed to be an expert /extremely good at what she does but she spent so little time with me towards the end of the visit. The fact that the assistant doctor spent so much time with me is not what I was looking for. While he is great but I was not confident if he has enough experience in providing the root cause and pinpointing the issue. I specifically made an appointment to see the doctor and was willing to wait for 1 month just to see her but was quite disappointed that it was the assistant that asked all the injury history.

I appreciated having the option to return for a routine follow-up appointment. I don't see the value of a co-payment () for a quick check-in if it's not necessary.

I have already recommended her to others. I am very happy about the care I have received from her and all who work with her.

Dr. Schroeder was excellent - she was unhurried and gave me very specific information about my condition after close examination along with her recommendations.

This was my first visit with Dr. Schroeder. I felt very confident with her and comfortable. She took time to discuss my situation and explain the upcoming surgical procedure for my trigger thumb. Very positive first visit with her.

Dr. Schroeder's fellow was also excellent.

I saw a different physician in another state. I was recommended immediate surgery. This physician explained and suggested options without going to surgery. This shows her competence and care for the patient.

This surgeon waited nearly 5 months after surgery to see me.

Difficult to make an appointment at Marin General for MRI. MRI order didn't interphase with Marin General in order to make appointment.
Jan 28, 2021
2"fair" options since there was no final diagnosis so the doctor recommended for more tests to be done

Dr. Nicole Strauss Schroeder is such an ace doctor. She is a gem and UCSF is very lucky to have her on staff.
Dec 11, 2020
She is incredibly knowledgable very approachable and easy to ask questions and discuss health concerns with and provided incredibly useful information and interventions to help support my needs. I'm very grateful for her assistance.

This was my first time with this provider.

Dr. Schroeder is such a very professional and personable person. She is very concerned about any problems I am having and spends plenty of time explaining and making sure I understand everything
Dec 11, 2020
I have infact already recommended her to a couple people who have same condition as I do. She is the only 1 I have found that is knowledgeable and knows what she is talking about when it comes to my dupuytren's
Dec 04, 2020
Without reservation I would recommend Dr. Schroeder to others (though how I'm not sure since wrist injuries seem to need immediate attention.) What I will say is that Dr. Schroeder's follow through has been superb - I'm kind of shocked that I've regained almost all my mobility.

Dr. Schroeder was knowledgable and kind. The issue wasn't with her but with the length of your new patient appointments. She's somehow expected to assess all of my history and symptoms assess me explain the plan and options and write up her note my AVS and ordered tests in 15 mins?? That's insane. You make your providers work like a factory assembly line with no regard for complex patients or patient-centered care and basic human courtesies like getting to know a patient. She did an incredibly good job considering the time constraints but she was only able to address some of my issues and I was left with a lot of questions. This is the 5th appointment I've had with doctors at the Ortho Institute and every time it's a whirlwind and I have to email providers after to have questions answered. You need to make new patient appointments longer and stop making your entire operation based on billing. It's a disgrace to healthcare.

I had problems hearing the doctor likely on my end. Once she'd seen the areas to be treated she quickly called me for better communication.

I am a retired PT. I practiced for 34 years. I did recommend Dr Schroeder to my best friend because I know " good practice when I see it"

would have liked to have X-rays shot prior to the appointment rather than afterwards
Jul 16, 2020

resident superb as first provider i saw. attending and resident collaborated impressively.thanks for outstanding care
Jun 06, 2020
The reason I returned to UCSF was because the quality of knowledge and care provided by my local physicians isn't up to the standards I want. However Small private practices make sure you don't have any difficulty getting in to see them.

the Main Doctor was excellent I did not care much for the assistance doctor intern he was not too friendly or had much experience I notice he struggle injecting my hand. I like to have the main Dr do the job next time. I do not feet comfortable with the intern doctor.
