I had a consultation with Dr. Schechter in late 2016. My biggest complaint is his office staff. Every single person I spoke to except for one lady (Tonya) was rude and cold. Dr. Schechter's bed side manner wasn't welcoming or comforting, but I am guessing that is just his personality. After dealing with his office staff not returning phone calls and not having answers once I finally called enough times I decided Dr. Schechter was not the surgeon for me. I will say Tonya was great!

After much heartache, anger, and emotional devastation caused by several complications. Dr. Schechter has my full confidence! Every day in hospital Dr. Schechter showed up. That is the direct opposite of what can be said for other physicians involved. After a year and one half, and multiple procedures. I know this to be a doctor who cares about his patients, their families, our results after procedures. Thank you Dr. Schechter!
My results are fine - not good, not horrible. If you are someone who likes to stay informed about your treatment, to know why a certain approach is preferred, or to just ask questions - this is not the doctor for you. In my experience, questions were treated as an annoyance, not part of standard patient care. The office manager is also VERY unpleasant. She's great up until you commit to scheduling then she is unhelpful & rude, at best. If I had to do it over, I would have chosen another doc.

I have never been so disrespected by staff in any office, medical or otherwise, then I was by Dr. Schechter's staff. They ignored me, lied to me, refused to admit they lied to me, and were completely unapologetic when they made mistakes with very real costs to me. They had no compassion or understanding regarding the gravity of choosing a doctor for GRS. Dr. Schechter seemed relatively nice at first, but when I actually needed to speak to him, he refused to speak to me directly.
