Dr. Schricker is very excellent @ explaining& giving knowledgeable medical advice. He is top notch doctor. I recommend him to everyone in need of a cardiologist. When I leave a message for him he calls me back himself. UCSD has the best doctors.
in Oceanside, CA |
Dr Schricker is a caring, kind, compass Cardiologist. My daughter has POTS and a lot of doctors brush kids with pots off and minimize their symptoms. Dr Schricker treated her with respect and concern. He ordered a tilt table test for the following week and performed it himself and the Sulpezio Center in La Jolla. I highly recommend him to anyone.
