Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schechter "My practice is unusual in that I am Board Certified in Family Medicine and treat general adult and adolescent health issues, physicals, preventive Care.  I also am Board Certified in Sports Medicine and treat injuries, back pain, inject muscles and joints and do PRP shots.  Finally, I have a credential in Integrative Pain Management and use mindbody and conventional approach to treat chronic pain.  

We offer a high degree of personal service in an era of large groups and anonymity. We offer a VIP program for those desiring an even higher level of service and responsiveness.  We have well trained staff and consistency in our small but helpful team.

I am affiliated with Cedars Sinai and have a great referral list for almost every specialty imaginable.  I know a lot of great doctors, physical therapists, and psychotherapists, where appropriate.

I have authored The MindBody Workbook and Think Away Your Pain as well as medical articles.  I have appeared on many podcasts and radio, TV.  "
