About Dr. Schroeder

Philosophy of care

I have always seen myself as a family physician because caring for the entire individual, in context of family and life just made sense to me. So, my philosophy of care has always been patient-centered, and focused on the relationships that I develop with my patients. This is the part that helps me feel happy and fulfilled.

Why I entered medicine

I was one of those people who knew from a very early age (age 7 as I recall) that I wanted to be a physician. I did not have family members in medicine, so I have decided that it was the positive influence of my family doctor that led me down this path. I double-checked along the way to make sure that my interests and passion were still aligned with medicine, but I have essentially "never looked back"!

Community involvement

For many years prior to arriving at Lehigh Valley Health Network in 2012, I was very involved with a student-run free clinic in Newark, N.J. I hope to extend this interest and desire to serve this community by working with the health care professional students here at Lehigh Valley Health Network to provide services to the underserved.

Personal interests

My interests include exercising, gardening, antiquing and most outdoor activities. I am just starting to learn to play the piano!

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
