Dr Schrock has always taken exceptional care of me...she talks to me about any concerns

November 26, 2016

My experience couldn't have been better.

November 25, 2016

They took the time to listen to my concerns. How you found such Great people impresses me. Thank You!

November 23, 2016

This was my first appointment directly with Dr Schrock. others were with PA or a NP I believe. I appreciated getting to become familiar with her and the time spent by her going over my problems and care plan. it is really good to know I can be in touch between appointments with my chart and that I can get an answer to questions within a day, sometimes within the morning or afternoon.

November 21, 2016

It felt lilke I was rushed and none of the tests (iike walking/turning, hand movements, etc.)

November 16, 2016

We love Dr. Schrock and Desiree and feel like they are genuinely interested in my well-being

November 12, 2016

I'm very thankful for Dr. Schrock and her expertise in helping my condition! She's good at what she does.

November 06, 2016

Dr. Schrock knows DBS!!!!

October 29, 2016

I love the confidence and goodness in her. I know I'm with the best and I'm grateful for Dr. Schrock.

October 17, 2016

I felt that Dr. Schrock rushed off to see another patient after me. That was disappointing because I only get to see her once a year. After waiting for so long that day, I hoped that I would get the time I felt that I needed. I think it got cut short.

October 13, 2016


September 27, 2016

I could not ask for better care than Dr. Schrock and Desiree provide for me. I and my entire family feel that I am in the care of the best.

September 21, 2016

staff very pleasant ; listened patiently and offered direction

September 20, 2016

Dr Shrock is an incredible physician. Her level of care is off the charts. I know without her as my physician I would not be where I am today. To look at me you would never know that I have had Parkinsons for 18 years.

September 20, 2016

Dr Schrock was very helpful and never made me feel like she was in a hurry to go anywhere else. She answered any questions we had and explained them I terms we could understand.

August 22, 2016

good and informative

August 15, 2016

Thank You Dr. Schrock!!!!

August 11, 2016

As always Dr. Schrock was AMAZING!!!

July 21, 2016

Absolutely will recommend Dr. Schrock to others

July 16, 2016

comsiderimg the visit was most of the day everyone was very congenial and considerate of my lousey condition of no sleep and no meds

July 16, 2016

My care provider was thorough in examining me and explaining my medication choices as well as other treatment options.

July 10, 2016

I am very happy with the great care Dr. Schrock, Desiree Davis, and her team provide each time I visit. They are incredibly knowledgeable; listen to me and understand and acknowledge my input; are tremendous in their follow up actions; communicate clearly and kindly and I would recommend them without any reservation at all.

June 20, 2016

Dr Schrock is perfect for the job. Her knowledge of her job was obvious.

May 07, 2016

I know I sound like a broken record but everyone is so nice and helpful. The staffs attitude and genuine concern for me makes a difference in how I view may disease and my efforts to stay on top with exercise and medications.

April 30, 2016

The care provider talked very fast, making it difficult for my husband to understand him. It was necessary for me to interpret for my husband.

April 18, 2016

It would have been helpful to discuss the price of the new medication.

March 24, 2016

Dr. Schrock is very knowledgeable and has excellent bed-side manners. We were highly impressed with her.

February 23, 2016

Alternatives to DBS were clearly explained and in depth.

February 18, 2016

I look forward to my visits to the clinic, I had many questions to ask them.

February 08, 2016

Felt very informed and all questions and concerns addressed.

January 26, 2016

As always the care I recieved from Dr Schrock and her team was second to none. I felt very much as cared for as any other time I have been there.

January 15, 2016

I really like Dr. Schrock and Dr. Sammy. They always seem concerned about my problems.

January 12, 2016

Dr. Schrock and her team always treat me like I'm the most important patient on the planet. Dr. Schrock and Desiree Davis are the best!!

December 20, 2015

doctor was the best one i have had at this facility (3rd doctor in i think 4 visits)

November 24, 2015

I had an outstanding experience. The staff was very capable and friendly. Dr Shrock obviously knows her business very well and took the time to make certain my outcome was optimal

November 16, 2015

Three providers attended to me. Dr Schrock and her PA were excellent. The first one was short of temper as explained above.

November 16, 2015

Dr Schrock was very thorough and enlightening in her exam. You have a Very professional doctor!

November 07, 2015

Highly proficient and empathetic.

October 19, 2015

The bulk of time with us was spent by the doctor in fellowship. We waited so long, that I (patient's wife) had to leave to make another appointment for myself. Dr. Schrock shows the most concern, and we have confidence in her, but her time with patient and our son was not very long.

October 13, 2015

Dr. Schrock has demonstrated to me that she is one of the top DBS programmers in the world. UofU Med Ctr is fortunate to have her.

October 13, 2015

Dr. Schrock is absolutely amazing! If not for her time, patience and knowledge I would not be on the path to a normal daily life. I cannot thank her enough!

October 12, 2015

I was having a really difficult time during my appointment, and the whole care team were extra outstanding.

October 04, 2015

This visit was an exceptional one. I live in St. George (formerly in Rexburg IDaho) . I was blessed to have been the recepient of a DBS unit. However, when I would come up for my appts. if we had to do any adjustment to the DBS I was usually on a Thursday or Friday. When I would get home after tweeking my system I would be back on the phone with the doctor trying to fix the change. this time we scheduled 2-3 days to tweek , observe tweek some more observe some more and then after everyone was satisfied wth the result I went home. How many doctors would take the time to do that for a patient. SHe is already incredibly busy and I feel so blessed to have her and her marvelous team taking care of me. they literally have given me my life back. Parkinson's is a cruel disease and having stuggles with it for the last 16 years I am so indebited to Dr Srock, Dr House Dr Renner, and everyone that has worked with them.

October 04, 2015

My doctor did something that was amazing to me. I live a couple hundred miles from Salt Lake. Inthe past when I have come in for my DBS "tweaking" I have come in on Friday. If there is a problem it shows up after I have left. SO we came up with the plan of staying for 2-3 days. The first day was adjusting my DBS and then I went home and came back in the afternoon. The next day I came in at 10:00 am and worked with me for a couple hours. Came in again on Thursday and tweaked some more until we got things to a good place. I know how incredibly busy Dr. Schrock and her staff are. I never once felt rushed or like I was an inconveniece. I am so grateful for the marvleous care I have received , From the years I have seen Dr. David Renner then as I was blessed to be treated by Dr. Paul House and receive my DBS which basically gave me my life back. Then to have Dr. Lauren Schrock taking over my care and my DBS control, I am so eternally blessed and grateful for her and her team. Words cannot describe how incrdible she is.

September 26, 2015


September 22, 2015

Absolutely exceptional!

September 20, 2015

I love Dr. Schrock!

September 17, 2015

Dr Shrock is an amazingly knowledgeable & competent Neurologist whom I am lucky to be a patient with. I have Parkinson's Disease and she has done everything possible to make my treatment and future outcome as positive as possible. Even more rare is the fact that Dr. Shrock is a very kind and caring person and sincerly cares about her patients. There simply isn't a better Doctor anywhere and I am forever grateful to be her patient

September 13, 2015

Dr. Schrock is amazing!!

August 31, 2015

Have not seen this level of care in a private practice

August 28, 2015

Both Dr. Schrock and Carmen were both friendly and professional. Their skills and personality greatly added to my understanding of this procedure.

July 21, 2015

Excellent staff and Doctor care!

July 06, 2015

Dr. Schrock is AMAZING!! Finally after 11 years I have answers and a treatment plan. She is patient and answered all of my questions and concerns. She is the 1st Dr. that actually wanted me to demonstrate what I have been trying to explain to other Dr.'s for years.

July 06, 2015

Dr. Schrock is the best!

July 02, 2015

The physician and NP were very thorough and worked together very well

June 25, 2015

I could recommend this clinic and staff. I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Schrock.

June 13, 2015

As before - we couldn't be more pleased with the care and concern shown. The U of U Neurology department will be always on our best list!

May 12, 2015

In the more than three years I have been associated with Dr. Schrock I have learned to love and appreciate her. I feel that she is truly my friend as well as my doctor.

May 06, 2015

I feel the care provider is everything I could ask for and feel very very good about the care. I suspect it would have been years without a diagnosis without an excellent doctor. I would recommend Dr. Schrock to anyone.

May 01, 2015

the amount of time spent was remarkable

April 28, 2015

I felt like I was fully informed about my condition, the change in medications and follow up apts.

April 21, 2015

Dr Schrock is interrupted a lot with texts.

April 17, 2015

all were pleasant to work with and empathetic

April 12, 2015

I felt the doctor was good at what she was doing and had been doing within her field of expertise.

March 17, 2015

All excellent.

March 13, 2015

No complaints.

March 10, 2015

Superb physician!

October 06, 2014

She has aan amazing talent for the work she does...She will not let you leave until you feel perfectly knowledgeable in what to expect from the programming and that it will take a while until it is as good as it is gonna get...

September 29, 2014


September 29, 2014

Always the most caring, most helpful and understanding nurses, PA, and doctor a patient could have. Dr. Schrock and her assistants can could not be better! Even in the 8th month of her pregnancy Dr schrock is stlll giving 200% to her patients

September 27, 2014


September 23, 2014

I felt that my opinions and feelins were taken very seriously and I feel that my visit was exceptional I feel I have the best possible physican and support team possible for my condition

Dr. Schrock is the best of the best.

July 21, 2014

Very Good experience. Dr. Shurock has always been friendly and courtesy. She is very interested in me as a patient.

July 13, 2014

The care I received was exceptional in all respects.

June 24, 2014

I have always had a good experience with Dr. Schrock and her staff.

June 12, 2014


June 12, 2014

Again, we love Dr.Schrock

June 10, 2014

The only problem with recommending this care provider to others is that the work load is such that it is difficult to get a timely appointment.

June 05, 2014


June 03, 2014

Dr. Shrock and her resident spent almost three hours with me. I really appreciated the time they took to help me in every way they could. Kuddos to the resident. He will be sought after as an intelligent, caring, and sincere caregiver. He has a great mentor too. H Meyer

May 28, 2014

What a great team!!!!!!!!!

May 19, 2014

They are always thorough with my concerns and I have recommended you to many others.

May 11, 2014

very impressed!

May 11, 2014

I felt that we all got a good idea of the next steps that we need to take.

April 19, 2014

Has always been a very positive experience. Thank you

March 22, 2014

It was an extremely helpful and informative visit and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Dr. Schrock and her staff

March 17, 2014

Others might not notice the small symptoms of movement disorders, but because I have Parkinson's, I look for and never pass a person without showing concern for them. Inevitably, the conversation turns to the miracle of DBS, University of Utah, Dr Schrock and Dr House and team. "A ray of hope" is really a bright beam of light to in our life's! On one occasion after returning from a short hike with my wife, an older couple asked us how difficult it was and I told them I have Parkinson's and if I can do it they can do it. She said she has a brother with PD and she could not even tell I had PD. 30 minutes later we had exchanged email address's and her brother in Virginia was going to be encouraged to go to the nearest Neuroscience center in his area, and this couple was going to learn more themselves!

March 01, 2014

Great Dr.

February 28, 2014

Feel we can handle her condition better now an with confidence they are there to help us when needed.

February 24, 2014

Dr. Schrock has given my life back to me; she simply is the best. I will forever be indebted to Dr. Schrock.

February 03, 2014

All good comments

January 18, 2014

Again -- exceptional

January 16, 2014

My experience with Dr Schrock was outstanding! Many in my family are doctors, thus, I am rarely deeply impressed by an office visit. Dr Schrock, however, was one of the unique examples of my being truly wowed. She is an amazing physician!!!

January 12, 2014

It is understandable why it is so difficult to get an appointment. I'm sure this center is in high demand.

January 07, 2014


January 07, 2014

She manages to be thorough, all business, but there's not a trace of the condescension you so often find in physicians.

January 06, 2014

Tremendous patience! Very attentive, although waits between times the care provider came in were too long. (Spoken from the patient's point of view.)

December 29, 2013

Dr. Schrock was very informative and caring about what is going on with me. She helped me understand it better and assured me there are things that can be done to live with the problem as pain free and healthful as I can be. She gave me positive feedback.

December 12, 2013

Dr.Scrock listened intently and has provided me with remarkable care.

December 08, 2013

she really cares about her patient and any concern that you have

December 02, 2013

She had studied my history and knew exactly what I was dealing with I have vrry complicated symptoms. She picked up on some things present in my brain that no other doctor had observed. She wanted to take more time and consult with other doctors before making a diagnosis. I know this was the right decision.

November 25, 2013

I think I was causing Dr. Schrock a lot of frustration. But she never lost her cool.

October 31, 2013

I totally trust Dr. Schrock. I really like that she doesn't just prescribe some medication to me because I am already on a ton of meds. And she leaves the prescribing to my main doctor. She also communicates with him all the suggestions she makes etc.... More doctors should be like that. Most at the U of U are like this and I really appreciate it. Thank you!!

October 11, 2013

I was amazed to recognize many of the symptoms I was experiencing as part of the disease. it is amazing to me how all this is connected. I was so grateful for all the time spent in explaining and questioning me. And I left with a greater understanding of what was associated with this disease.

October 03, 2013

Dr. Shrock is wonderful! She makes me feel good about my treatment. She doesn't rush through anything. She explains everything until we both understand any change.

September 25, 2013

Dr. Schrock is the first physician who had any idea how to treat what's wrong with me. You'll never know how relieved I was when she said this simple phrase: "I've seen this before".

August 29, 2013

Dr. Schrock is the best. I am very grateful to be one of her patients. Desiree was also great. Personable, engaged and informed.

August 26, 2013


August 26, 2013

We would highly recommend Dr. Schrock and this office. In fact we have referred someone there in the past.

August 22, 2013

Dr. Schrock is the first physician I've gone to who actually understood what's wrong with me. You can't imagine how relieved I am to have found her.

August 22, 2013

My experience with Dr. Schrock and her assistant has been very good and I trust them in every way.

August 22, 2013

Dr. Schrock is great. She spends the time needed and she explains everything very clearly. She is kind, understanding and in one word...wonderful.

August 21, 2013

I always refer people to U of U med and Dr Schrock.

August 19, 2013

Dr. Schrock is the best!

August 15, 2013

Dr Schrock was very good at telling me exactly what my options were and also how the operation would be done and what I could expect.

August 13, 2013

Wow, what a wonderful staff!

August 12, 2013

Dr. Schrock spent a long time trying to improve my condition. I appreciated her concern.

August 12, 2013

Professional in every way

August 02, 2013

I have already given Dr Schrock's pamphlet who has tremors. Everyone who knows me says its a miracle.

July 23, 2013

good, bad, waiting time

May 22, 2013

Dr. Schrock is one of the very best doctors we have witnessed. She really cares about her patient and it shows. She has incredible knowledge. You will be hard pressed to find a better all around docter. A++

May 21, 2013


May 20, 2013

excellant !!!

May 20, 2013

I'm very grateful for the help I am receiving.

April 25, 2013

Thank you!

April 15, 2013

Very nice and people friendly. Excellent service

April 09, 2013

This is the best medical staff I have ever seen put together. I would highly reccomend them to anyone. University of Utah Medical Center should be proud of its group because they are highly professional and they care about their patients.

April 02, 2013

Even tho the botox didn't work right with me Dr Schrock showed great concern when I couldn't swallow or talk very good. She showed me some exercises to do. And gave me some ideas to help me swallow while I'm waiting for botox to wear off.

March 25, 2013

We have recommended several to Dr. Schrock.

March 20, 2013

I don't think what I'm experiencing is normal after the procedure. But, the RN returned my call right away and so did the on call dr the night before. So I felt like they really cared about how awful I feel and how difficult it's been to talk and swallow.

March 05, 2013

Good experience

February 25, 2013

Dr. Schrock took time to answer my questions and concerns. I felt she was very interested in me as a patient.

February 09, 2013

Dr. Schrock and Deseree Davis are both superb. None bettter.

February 04, 2013

An incredibly good experiencce. Every one treated us with kindness and respect

January 30, 2013

Dr Schrock has always made me feel that she was very concerned about me and my perSonal welfare. She always takes a lot of time and is very through in her examination. She always makes sure that all my questions and concerns are taken care of.

January 23, 2013

Dr Schrock and Desiree are wonderful

January 11, 2013

I have been very satisfied and happy with the doctor's, nurses, etc. throughout my surgery, programing of my stimulator and the adjustments that have been made.

January 10, 2013

Dr. Schrock and Desiree are two of my favorite people! I've been given my life back! Dr. HOuse and his staff are totally superlative team.

December 24, 2012

Always positive

December 10, 2012

Dr. Schrock is outstanding in knowledge and action!

December 10, 2012

The doctor and PA seemed competent and acted like professionals. I have confidence in them.

November 09, 2012

Desiree and Dr Schrock are excellent!

November 09, 2012

Dr. Schrock is one of the most caring Doctors that we have encountered. Not only is she caring, but very knowledgable. This person is an exceptional Doctor!

October 19, 2012

Only good!

October 19, 2012

We need to be able to contact this office for problems between visits. We seldom get our messages returned.

September 27, 2012

Our experience with Dr. Shrock was excellent. We felt confident in her experience level and ability to explain and recommend treatment.

September 26, 2012

Dr. Schrock is great!

September 25, 2012

I always look forward to visiting Dr Schrock. Her Dr/Patient relationship attitude is excellent! I think one of the most important things I like about her is that she always has time for questions and concerns from the patient, and that she always has time to listen. I feel that my questions and concerns matter! I feel important as a patient and that my well-being truly matters to her.

September 23, 2012

Everyone involved were very thorough in obtaining information from me, testing, etc., to ensure the correct diagnosis was determined.

August 13, 2012

The Doctor was great. We realize the first appointment is always a "get to know the patients health" appointment. She covered everything very well.

July 19, 2012

I really appreciate the care and compassion show to me by Dr. Shrock and Desiree Davis.

July 17, 2012

Dr. Schrock is very friendly and is an excellent Dr. to see.

July 03, 2012

Dr Schrock is extremely concerned and knowledgeable and I trust her advice and suggestions for my care.

June 14, 2012

I have really liked Dr. Schrock. She has been taking care of three of my children. They all three feel vey comfortable with her and like her a lot. They feel like they can talk to her and that I don't have to go with them when they have an appiontment that she cares enoug about them that they can talk to her about any problems they are having.

May 11, 2012

overall excellent care received by Dr. Shrock and staff

April 20, 2012

I cannot even begin to tell of thr thoroughly great physician Dr. Schrock is, also Desiree Davis,her ass't. They gave me the best adjustment and also the best information about my medications. It has made a tremendous difference in my life

April 07, 2012

my treatment by Dr Schrock has been fantastic. Without her and Desiree's help I would be an invalid. They are both amazing.

April 02, 2012

Very grateful for Dr. Schrock, she is very professional and also very kind, most of all very knowledgeable.

March 30, 2012

She awesome and very understanding and nice

March 26, 2012

Dr. Schrock is the absolute best Dr. I've ever had for Parkinsonds, she is thorough, kind and genuinely cares about her patients.

March 22, 2012

State of the art! Cutting edge!

March 19, 2012

The doctor is incredible

March 15, 2012

Excellent! Have no concerns or complaints

March 15, 2012

I have recommended the University of Utah and the doctors. They are great!

March 05, 2012

Dr Schrock and Desiree are two of the most compassionate, knowledgable, dedicated people i know. They listen, but even more so, they hear. I have never seen them waste time, but the time they spend is careful, efficient, and complete. Again, becaue i am an engineer, i evalutate, watch, listen and ask questions so i feel i have a grip with and handle on Parkinson's disease. When we are done, I feel that we made progress. Perhaps it is because with DBS, there is actually a way to make progress, rather than walk out no6tknowing where you are going.

March 03, 2012


March 01, 2012

very good

February 27, 2012

Was very happy and delighted to have someone so receptive and caring. Thank you!

February 06, 2012

Dr. Schrock is unlike any physician I have ever met. I feel like I am in the care of the best of the best. I come away from each visit with a renewed hope and will to win. If any doctor is ever going to solve my medical problems, it will be Dr. Schrock. I am constantly telling concerned family and friends that I am under the care of the best and most competent neurologist in the medical world. She is extremely knowledgeable and yet is able to communicate at my level of understanding. I feel truly blessed in being one of Dr. Schrock's patients. She is one of the most Christ like individuals I have ever met - I have complete faith and trust in her.

January 26, 2012

Dr. Schrock is a wonderful doctor, she takes the time needed to explain things to me and doesnt' talk "over my head" with medical language. She and Desiree are a great team and I tell everyone about how great they and the rest of the staff are.

My research has focused on neuromodulation as both a therapy for movement disorders such as Parkinson disease, dystonia, and tremors, including novel indications (e.g., Tourette syndrome, primary freezing of gait), and also as a tool to further understand underlying disease pathophysiology and normal brain circuitry. My attention has recently turned to the development of new models of care for DBS patients, leveraging technology to improve efficiency (and therefore access) and quality of care for complex DBS patients.
