Patient Comments (2)
Laguna Beach, CA |
Several visits, no treatment -- but always a BIG push for the NEXT appointment. No consideration of the patient's time -- long waits every visit; and when he would finally show, he had not even spent a minute to review his notes. So the "consult" would be him reading the notes, you repeating everything from the last visit, and him putting it back into his computer as the "new" notes. Seemed like he was just trying to milk the insurance co. -- so just stopped going. His staff kept calling.

I was unable to find many (any) Rheumatologists in South Orange County since my condition is not chronic and require special intervention. Dr. Schenk's office willingly accepted me and scheduled a prompt appointment. Staff are excellent and promptly respond to calls. Dr. Schenk's demeanor and explanations are above average. High recommendation!
