Dr. Shechtman is AMAZING! I hate going to the Dr. and he makes it actually enjoyable. He listened to me and ask questions to know more about me and my needs. He did not hesitate to refer me where I needed to go to get all my needs taken care of and the fact that he can do labs in office is a HUGE plus for me!

Dr S listened to me and diagnosed my issues very quickly. Had me on the road to recovery in short order. Literally saved my life. Dr.'s like this are a rare breed. ACA is destroying this nation and forcing despicable rules on doctors and patients. Never in history has it been a finable offense not to buy health insurance. Dr Shechtman is a true healer who, like many other true healers struggling to rise above all the red tape and do the best he can for the patient.

While I wish he would spend a wee bit more time with me, he has diagnosed my issues, and has, on occasion referred me to a specialist such as an orthopedic surgeon. I highly recommend him and his way of building trust and rapport with his patients. It's obvious that he cares. AND real people answer the phone in his office and get answers to your questions or concerns! There are no robots to deal with or Press 7 if you're a cat lover; Press 8 if you prefer goldfish etc.!!!
