Best doctor. He is caring and takes his time with his patients. His office staff is wonderful. We love getting to see Amber when we arrive. Dr. Schrenker has been there for our family for over 10 years and has helped us through several illnesses. We could not ask for any better. He has been a blessing to our family. He always looks beyond the symptoms to find the root of the problem. Highly recommended.

Dr. Schrenker is a wonderful doctor ! His front end staff is very rude ..do they know who writes their pay check ...if patients don't go through the front door ...they don't get paid ...in my opinion the office manger is allowing this to happen ...Dr. Schrenker knows how rude they are too...he should not let this be happening...to his patients...

I had an appointment with the doctor this morning. They said they needed my insurance card, old one was no good, told them I forgot my wallet and glad to text back to them. No, I would have to pay in full or I cannot see the Dr. (no wallet, I was I to pay them) I said I had been coming here for over 10 years and because I didn't have my insurance card I cannot see the Dr. Correct. I told them, I will find another doctor. I treated them as family and took cookies at Christmas and thank them.

Honestly, he was an awesome doctor when I first started seeing him a couple of years ago, but now I'm wondering if it was all fake or he's just gotten money hungry. I used to be able to get an appointment with him easily but now I've not been able to see him since March despite having back issues that he ignored in March. He won't even give me the courtesy of a phone call after his staff messed up and didn't schedule my appt. Now I have to wait til Dec even though it was his staff's fault?!

The front staff is rude and does a poor job of scheduling. His main goal is to get every patient on a plant based diet and this is supposed to fix everything. His wife is the nutritionist he will gladly set up an appointment for her to help you get started. His FNP is not exactly what I would consider professional and after one visit with him that is who you see. I did not feel they really cared if I felt better or not they just wanted me to come in every 3 months to run more blood work.

Dr. Schrenker is the most down to earth, caring and knowledgeable family practitioner we've ever been to. He has helped find the root of several issues which were dismissed by other practitioners. I can't more highly recommend this good man.

I was his patient for a few years and he seemed like a nice, good MD until he turned his back on me and told me to use a too strong bleach solution on a slow healing wound I had on my lower leg from a biking accident. I believe he knew better and intended to hurt me. He's a stinking rat, a liar, and a wimp, and I'll tell him to his face if I ever get the chance. He betrayed me when I was in danger of getting osteomyelitis.
