I think Dr. Schecter is a great doctor and he really cares for his patients. Him and his staff always get my kids in as soon as they can and take great care of them. I feel that he answers my questions with complete honesty, which I appreciate.

I am not happy with this doctor. He is VERY condescending. He will treat you like you are stupid. If you ask a question, he'll make it sound like your question is a dumb. He is not personable and not child friendly. Very dissatisfied!

We (my two young children and I) showed up 15 mins early to our appointment and waited behind one other family. By the time we were put in a waiting room it was way past our scheduled time and we were told there was only one patient ahead of us. We never saw a doctor. We waited for an hour and 15 mins past our appointment then, since it was the end of the day the office couldn't give us a refund on our copay because they had shut the register down already. I did not reschedule.

Not a very nice man. More worried about himself than his patients. Try to be friendlier to people and less condescending.
