New Holland, PA |
I've been to Dr. Schenkel several times. If he is running a little late, he always stops in to tell his patients he will be with them in a few minutes. He is very courteous and also deliberate in his treatment for his patients. He has always written instructions for me to follow. He is by far the most competent Dr that has ever treated me!

Outstanding, highly competent, and friendly doctor. Great with children. Highly recommended.

I have been to over 10 different doctors over the past few years. I'm from PA and even went to New York to seek treatment for my severe nickel allergy and food allergies. Dr. Schenkel was the only doctor who properly diagnosed and treated my allergies! He actually takes the time to sit with you and talk to about your condition. He is so down to earth and caring. I wish I would have found him years ago!!! I drive a hour and a half just to see him and would never go anywhere else!
