This review is to attest to the expert knowledge and compassionate nature of Dr. Eric J. Schenkel. I have been a patient of Dr. Schenkel for over 40 years and can vouch for his professional knowledge & care towards his patients. Throughout my life I have suffered with allergies and asthma. My daily routines consisted of vaporizer treatments, hot and cold compresses, and limited outdoor activity. Once I became a patient of Dr. Schenkel’s, underwent the correct testing procedures and diagnoses, I am living a totally different life. I am now quite active in bowling, camping, and all water sports activities. I never thought this type of lifestyle could ever exist for me. (I do not rely on vaporizers or compress treatments and very rarely use my emergency inhalers.) Please note Dr. Schenkel also treats my parents and brother as well. My brother was having difficulty breathing, and Dr. Schenkel diagnosed him with a heart condition that did save his life. I can highly recommend Dr.

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!

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!
