I would give Dr. Schachter and his office 0/5 stars if that was an option. Dr. Schachter upcharges/bills and forges documents. After requesting a copy of my file, I found out that he/his office has been forging my blood pressure for EVERY visit, which is every 3 months. The ONLY times my blood pressure has actually been checked were on my very first visit as a new patient (about 4 years ago) and when I had an appointment with a Nurse Practitioner in his office.

Quick to prescribe meds and does not take the time to speak with his patients. Seems his interest come before yours, $$$.
I was a patient of Dr. Schachter's as a juvenile. Ten years later, looking back on what was done to me I consider it beyond negligence, and into the realm of medical abuse. Dr. Schachter, over the course of years, probably spent a matter of hours with me - appointments were typically ten minutes long and consisted of frequently altering medications, which were given to me in doses above what is approved for adults. I'm lucky and grateful to be alive despite Dr. Schachter's care.

My husband has been in the Brookwood Psyc Geriatric Unit for 2 weeks. It has been a total waste of time. He has done NOTHING to help my husband. I would not recommend this Dr. to anyone. I have changed Doctor and praying for better results or a transfer to another facility. What a nightmare!
He doesn't care about his patients. All he wants is pincushions to play God with. The only treatment he wants to recommend is shock therapy and doesn't even care if his patients get the meds they need. He likes playing with people's lives and seeing how much damage he can cause. If you care about getting better don't use him. People are nothing but disposable Guinea pigs.

He is compassionate and caring. He listens well and adjusts care according to my needs. His nurse is wonderful- she is very easy to speak with about care and concerns. Would recommend this group to anyone.
