What People Say About Dr. Carol Sheckter, MD
RecentMost Helpful

I started seeing Dr. Sheckter in 1992 soon after my diabetes diagnosis. I had no idea on that first visit what a fortunate relationship I had just entered. Only much later did I really learn how important it was that she knew enough at the time to run the test for the specific type of diabetes that I had. In 26 plus years I have had so many needs for her expert care or referrals to other medical specialties.

Dr. Sheckter is a great primary care doctor. She is concerned about her patients and always willing to spend extra time with them. She is aware of the latest medical research and shares it. For example: the positives and negatives of taking a particular drug or of getting a particular vaccine. If a vaccine is not yet perfected enough, she will say wait. Her concern and care so appreciated. Highly recommend.

In addition to being very knowledgeable, Dr. Sheckter has outstanding interpersonal skills. She always takes time to listen to her patients, and carefully teases out information to make a differential diagnosis. I appreciate Dr. Sheckter's holistic approach to medicine...treating the whole patient.
