Waited over an hour than while I sat there he tried to get into the link and only then started to review the history they had me fill out weeks in advance( I had been told by the medical assistant that he had reviewed it before he came in and that’s what was keeping him). He interrupted my recounting my history with a phone call that lasted awhile and when I read his notes I found that it was incorrect which showed to me that he wasn’t really paying attention. He had me do a test was unable to give proper instructions due to her lack of knowledge of English.

He is the BEST pulmonary doctor. I was coughing for a long time and I was lucky to see Dr. N. Schachter. After 10 day treatment I am cough free and I feel very well. He is a very knowledgeable doctor, explaining everything and answering all your questions. I highly recommend him and I call him the MIRACLE doctor. Emilia S.
