Franz E. Schneider, MD Gastroenterologist, Houston, Nassau Bay, Webster, Pasadena, Pearland, TX

“My choice to become a GI specialist was greatly influenced by my father, who also was a gastroenterologist. I grew up with an innate desire to, as my father had done, help people in a meaningful way. And more than 15 years later, this is still my desire.

“Everything I do is about people, and it shows in how I care for my patients. I treat them with honesty, kindness and respect, and I’m both realistic and down-to-earth. We are all human beings, and we all deserve compassion and excellent care. So this is what I strive for every day, and I know it makes a difference.”
