I have been going to Dr. Scheckter for several years now. I have COPD and emphysema and he has been treating me for this for these conditions. He is very patient, kind, and considerate.Personally I wouldn’t go anywhere else I have been to several pulmonologist prior to finding Dr. Scheckter and have not gotten the great care that I received from him. I would highly recommend him along with the other doctors in the practice of Nassau Chest.

I am a medical professional myself, a dentist. So I have a feel for what is good. He is absolutely a wonderful physician. He is personable and explains everything clearly. I can tell he knows his medicine well by how easily it comes from him. I never feel rushed.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schecter's for nearly 20 years now. I had severe asthma as a child and started seeing him when I was 5 years-old. I am now well-controlled with medications and have not had an asthma attack since I started seeing him. Great doctor.
