I found Dr Schechtman to be very knowledgeable on rheumatoid issues, but found her condescending and she lost her temper twice during my 3 year association with her office. She seemed very rushed an unable to accept any questioning to her suggestions of treatment options. I loved the PA that works with her, and preferred to see her instead of the Dr. I found Dr. S. pushy with medications, office labs and more interested in charging for an office visit than actually treating my condition.

The experience I have had with Dr. Schechtman in the last several years has been phenomenal. She has been more thorough and has considered the "whole picture" more than any doctor I have ever had (and i am 75 years old). I believe she has kept my arthritis pain to a minimum and helped me through more serious procedures when they have been necessary. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Schechtman is the best doctor I've ever had. Not only is she professional, professional, and informative but she's the most caring doctor I've ever had in my 70 years. It may take a little while to scheduled your first appointment and that first office visit is long, but you can be assured that it is well worth it. Every time I go to her office (and I go every 3 months), she seems to know my entire history without looking at my file. Everything about her is top notch!

Dr. Schechtman is wonderful, she saved my life wihen other doctors did not know what to do with my lupus flares she knew exactly what to do. She has always been very kind and caring.

It took too long to schedule...they also call and cancel my appointment twice. I was not too happy about that. I guess it has nothing to do with the Doctor but it does affect the overall care.
