I work in the city and used to use a dermatologist in Manhattan for years. Switched to Dr Schechter and I thinks he is terrific. He has treated me for 2 skin cancers, is always kind and personable and performs a very thorough after each exam. Terrific physician!

I saw Dr. Schechter for a few years until we moved out of state a few months ago. He is knowledgable, kind and caring. I have to look for someone new where I currently live and am dreading it. There are not many doctors like him. He has also treated some of my kids and was wonderful with them.

Dr Schechter has been treating me for acne. In 2 months of taking medicines he prescribed my skin is starting to look great! I had seen another Dermatologist over the last year with so so results. He also very friendly and answers my questions.
