My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My philosophy of health can be summed up by the following words: "Think well, live well, eat well. Then by God's grace you can feel and be well." My role as your physician is to advise and equip you with the information and tools necessary to improve your health and keep you healthy. I prefer to do this with as little medicine as necessary. I have specific interest and expertise in cardiovascular health, diabetes, hypertension and preventive health. I cherish the relationships I am able to develop with my patients and their families and desire to provide excellent care. 

In my 20+ years of private family practice, I've learned that excellence in healthcare begins with a meaningful relationship between a patient and physician that is focused on wellness and prevention. Current traditional healthcare models demand high patient volumes and minimal face-to-face time with physicians. Future healthcare trends promise to only complicate these issues further. Recent advances in research and technology have resulted in new tests with exceptional predictive value for patients but are often financially unobtainable.  

After a thoughtful search for an effective solution, I am thrilled to partner with MDVIP, a personalized preventive healthcare model which optimizes the doctor-patient relationship by allowing me to provide 24/7 availability to my patients, unhurried same or next day appointments and a robust Annual Wellness Program which provides advanced technologies and labs not covered by insurance. By focusing only on a few hundred patients who value this level of care, I can customize a personal, comprehensive care plan for each patient which includes nutritional and exercise plans. I look forward to developing even more meaningful relationships with my patients and sharing the satisfaction of optimal healthcare!

Dr Schindel is the best Dr in the history of my 85 years. He CARES! Compassionate=truly cares for his patients; Attentive=always gives patients his full attention; Reliable =does what he promises; Excellence=only the best for his patients. He is thorough; follows through; digs deep before diagnosing; doesn’t ’band aid’ problems. I’ve never felt such peace at knowing every aspect of an issue… See more

I was not happy when my first MDVIP doctor moved on. Replacements Number two and three did not provide the care and advise a nearly 90 year old requires and expects to make it to 100. I can talk to my current doctor just as I did to my first. He is not making me younger but makes me feel that I am on the correct path again and has provided some new direction that makes me feel welcome and… See more

from Mary Kay in CO January 19, 2024 for Michael A. Schindel, MD

I share that title for my Doctor Michael Schindel with one of Tina Turner's hits. He is exactly that! He and my husband have been patients of his for at least 20 years and have always been treated like we were "special", but knowing him, he has that extraordinary gift of making each and everyone of his patients feel just like we did/do. My husband left us 2 years ago and was… See more
