Disappointing Physician
I saw Dr Schochet the end of 2021. I’m due for a colonoscopy and EGD summer 2022. He told me I did not need another office visit and to schedule the procedures with his office summer 2022. I have left 3 voice messages, 1 email and went into the office to schedule the procedures. His office staff has not responded to any of my requests to schedule. The staff is very unprofessional which is a direct reflection on Dr Schochet.

I never got to go for a visit because the rude, condescending receptionist canceled my appointment yesterday by voicemail and text. I took off from work for this appointment.Then I received numeous messages via e-mail and text stating I had an appointment today, When I called the office, the nasty receptiomist said she was expecting my call and denied canceling my appointment when I have proof in text and voicemail. I have never dealt with a more disorganized office and I think the doctor should find someone more competent. The receptionist is so nasty that I would never go to this office. I wish I could speak to the doctor himself. He should know what is going on. Patients are treated by this woman as if they are insignificant ad senile.

I saw Dr. Schochet for the first time yesterday. What a wonderful surprise. This Doctor listens, hears you, and makes sure all your questions are answered. My case is kinda complicated, and has stressed me out for years, but I feel a lot better after seeing this Doctor. In one appointment, I learned more from Dr. Schochet on improving my health and quality of life than the 11 years I've been in treatment for GI problems. I'm tracking my progress and looking forward to seeing Dr. Schochet again.

Dr. Schochet is the best. When I first started seeing him for colonoscopies his office was in Fort Lauderdale. His office is now down in Aventura. It's worth the drive. He is very personable, listens to what you have to say, and asks appropriate questions. He has a keen sense of humor which puts you at ease in his office and on the day of the procedure. He is also more aware than most of the prevalence of a certain type of colorectal cancer that is prevalent within the gay male community and routinely tests for any abnormalities, unlike other doctor's who seem afraid to bring up the subject. Dr. Schochet cares about your back side!!!!

Another colorectal doctor had done a hemorrhoidectomy on me and after 4 months I was still in severe pain and living a nightmare. Dr. Schochet was incredibly thorough and very consistent in his advice and guidance through several visits. I was literally seeing 4 other experienced Doctors simultaneously given situation I was in but finally decided to perform my 2nd surgery with Schochet at month 5 post original operation. I left that second operation with ZERO pain (couldn't believe it) and fully recovered within 3 weeks after my operation with Schochet. My nightmare was finally over. I would highly recommend Dr. Schochet. I was literally seeing 5 of the top specialist in Miami for Colorectal an he by far was the best. He is highly knowledgeable, highly experienced, very caring, very direct & transparent and highly skilled. Couldn't ask for a better ColoRectal surgeon.

My experience with Dr.Schochet was an extremely positive one. I recently had THD hemorrhoid surgery, which almost no one looks forward to! He eased my fears, explaining the procedure in detail and provided specific pre and post op instructions. These were followed and I’m happy to say I experienced no discomfort or complications. I highly recommend Dr. Schochet.

I have seen Dr Schochet for several years and he is the best out there for colorectal. I also have had 2 friends in the past year who had emergency surgeries and were lucky enough to have Dr Schochet be in the emergency room those times. They were very happy with the outcomes.

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!

, 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!
