As a retired RN, I'm very happy to have Dr Schrager as my PCP. He is very kind and personable, very knowledgeable and thorough even during routine checkups. He goes the extra mile to provide information and guidance on any questions I might have. Best of all, he is a great listener, and I never feel rushed during appointments. I highly recommend him to others.
