This physician sent my mother for testing an Echocardiogram to R/O CHF. I was never contacted with results, When I called I was told he would call me if there was a problem. Well my mom ended up in ER 2 months later for the first time ever we were told her swollen legs; he saw in his office was that she had heart failure. She spent 3 weeks in hospital with every doctor in disbelief he didn't admit her to begin and those test results they faxed over showed she had CHF to begin with, never knew!

Dr. Schechter is the worst, most unprofessional doctor I have ever dealt with. After five years of treating my mother, just when she needed him most, he told her to get another doctor. He criticized and blamed her for getting sick. He even criticized her for having to call for an ambulance on several occasions. It turned out that her mitral valve was torn and two of her arteries were blocked but these diagnoses were made by real doctors at Johns Hopkins. We will never see this man again.
