What People Say About Dr. Alan Schecter, MD
Reply
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.
