Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been a patient of Dr Schachner through 2 different cancers and I have come to appreciate his professional and down to earth knowledge. I love the straight forwardness and lets get this fixed attitude. He also works well with the Houston doctors that did my surgery that wasn't available here in Beaumont. He's the best!

The only real complaint I have is the long wait times. I feel that 3-4 hrs in an office visit is too long and then to have to stand in line to make another appointment. My time is valuable too, and a lot more can be accomplished in a shorter time.

I was referred to Dr. Schachner due to anemia. He and his team are caring and seem to be very concerned about my problems. After several visits I was referred to another doctor to check to see if I was bleeding and that might be the cause of my anemia. After those tests came back negative, I started taking iron infusions to help with my problem. Each test has proven negative results, but no one has given up on me. Repeating of the tests still have not found my problem, but I do feel they are doing the best they can do.

Throughout the many years I have been a patient of Dr Schachner I have come to appreciate his vast knowledge and would highly recommend him. He is not a “hold your hand -you have cancer” personality. I am glad he always told me everything straight forward. He also gave me options and referred me to a doctor in Houston to get a second opinion. Love him.

I was treated with respect and he saw to it that I received what was needed, both in the hospital with blood infusions, and with iron infusions. He also got me the necessary consult with a gastroenterologist. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr Schachner may not have the best bed side manners but be a doctor I didn’t go to him for manners. He is a good doctor in a very hard field of medicine and he is a man of very few words. I feel that Texas Oncology is very lucky to have on staff.

He is a little abrupt, but competent. You have to pin him down to get details. Once you get his attention, he'll give you the information.
