What People Say About Dr. Neil Shachter, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was recommended to Dr. Shachter shortly after my heart attack. My cardiovascular surgeon gave me less than a year to live, Dr. Shachter I believe is the reason for me still being here, nine years later. The doctor treats each patient with what works best for them, a realistic approach that takes time and effort, something Dr. Shachter is generous with.

The type of doctor we wish all doctors would be. Took his time. Listened. Didn't talk down to me. And most importantly, explained what everything meant. Literally the first DR I've encountered in my life that explained not just WHAT a prescription did, but HOW it worked.

Under his care he failed to spot a 99% blocked artery which led to me having a heart attack. Then on a folowup visit from surgery he kept me waiting in his office for an hour

Dr. Shachter is the kindest, most knowledgable Doctor I've been to. He actually sits and talks with me while most doctors just stare at a screen the whole appointment. Dr. Shachter has helped me tremendously both in the office and when I needed him most, in the hospital, he was there for me. If you want care and expertise I recommend this gentleman.
