So far my experience with Dr Schenker and his staff has been nothing less than incredible!!
in Jackson, N.J. |
I had been suffering with chronic pain for years. I was constantly in the emergency room. My doctors were treating me with different pain killers that we're not helping the pain. I went to see Dr. Schenker, and after a few visits and different tests, he had my pain under control. He takes time and listens to me. He's helped me out with other health problems, and works,with my other doctors. He's a great diagnostition. I even recommend him to my Mother.

Worst doctor experience. Walked in and out of the room for no reason. Judged me by my appearance. Never been so offended. He didn't even order an MRI. Garden state pain management is who I go to now and they are great.

Dr Schenker is the most unprofessional doctor I have ever seen. And I have seen many doctors with my condition. He speaks over you while you are answering his questions, his bedside manor is non-existent. He is gruff, nasty and i would not bring my dog to him. Please find a professional doctor who cares about his patients.
