Their office cancelled 15 minutes before I was to arrive - something about a meeting - too bad for me. Made a second appointment ,and, after describing my issue, the Dr. told me he needed a test performed before he would even look at me. When I asked if the test would be covered by my insurance, the answer was "it should be". Found another well documented Dr. who saw me right away, examined my condition and performed the simple common procedure to address the issue. Beware!
He and his staff went above and beyond to put me at ease and help make my office visits and surgical experience as pleasant as possible. I am grateful.

, a colonoscopy was scheduled several weeks in advance. Two days prior, the appointment was cancelled and rescheduled. At appointed time for colonoscopy, there was no meeting with the Doctor. After the procedure, I was awoken by a nurse, fed, then told to dress. I asked nurse if the doctor would tell me the results. She said she would! There was no follow up by the doctor himself!

Kudos to a wholly prodigious physician :-)

Dr Schochet is a truly gifted and compassionate physician who demonstrates the highest level of professionalism and exceptional patient care. I consider myself very fortunate to be healthy and alive due to his keen clinical observation and highly effective interventions as a top-notch provider. Dr Schochet displays genuine compassion, respect, and dignity to his patients and he is also a wonderful human being. In addition, he has a great sense of humor which is healing as well !!

I had required surgery several times due to HPV in the rectal area. I can't be positive if it Had been done four or five times over the years out of necessity. Unfortunately I have extensive experience in the health care arena as a patient. I haven't come across many other healthcare professionals who treat their patients as good. Straight common sense communication along with an at ease bedside/surgery table manners make Dr. Schochet special.

Went to Dr. Schochet for HPV warts in anus and he first applied acid which made the warts worse Then he performed surgery to remove them and he missed a wart and they grew back. After all of this he told me there was a cream available to make the warts go away. Every time I saw him I asked him about Apple cider vinegar and he said there is NO PROOF that it works and he didn't recommend it. So I didn't try until I was tired of all of it and within 1 week the warts were gone. He is untrustworthy
