I trust Dr. Schechter, but his office staff is totally incompetent. They forget to call with Biopsy results. They did not set up my surgical appointment as they promised. Did not return my message left on their answering machine.

Misdiagnosed me. Refused to look closely at skin condition. Instead prescribed me a pesticide for Contact Dermatitis which was the diagnosis of a real dermatologist the next day. When I called to tell them this they said he prescribed me a steroid and it could be used for poison ivy. Anyone that would use a pesticide for posion ivy would have to be insane. A doctor telling you that it is ok to use instead of admitting his incompetance is downright dangerous.

I will never recommend Dr.Schechter to my friends and mu family!!! Because of the rudeness and obnoxious of his staff.They are careless people. My biopsy report came to the office with Cancer diagnose,they called me after more then 3 weeks!!! Ridiculous!!!!
