    Dr Schindler is an outstanding Surgeon. He did a terrific job with my throat surgery and gave me the ability to breath again. He opened my airway from 5mm to 14mm and now I can go back to my tennis, hill walking, golf, light running, weights and yoga/Pilates. I have heard that he is by far the best in this type of surgery, and highly respected by other ENT doctors. I am very fortunate that he is working at OHSU.
