She's is excellent. Patient, thorough, works well with my hard headed medic background. Explains without going over my head but doesn't dumb down either.

I am from AZ and was concerned in finding a new pain management Dr. Fortunately 3 years ago, I found Dr. Schocket and his staff. I am exceptionally pleased with NP Tara Levy. She listens to my concerns, has great bedside manner and overall could not be happier and my pain has been greatly reduced.

Dr Schocket is absolutely the smartest, confident and compassionate pain doctor I have met in my 14 years of pain. However, on this date, the front desk staff was very rude to me. I was in tears until I realized that she was not only rude to me, but to others in line after me. Then I was angry that this staff member could treat patients like trash, even if she was "having a bad day". I have never felt so demoralized. Dr Schocket, you rock like a ROCKET!

I have been fortunate to find a Dr in Dr Schocket who only cares about the overall health and wellness of his patients with the whole emphasis of his work being grounded in patients care. I owe him and his team a debt of gratitude for seeing me through the deterioration of my back and knees and know that without their concern and expertise that I would be much more limited in my ability to really live life instead of really participating which is what they have helped me do! Thanks guys!

If there was one Doctor that you must have in your life and truly trust let it be Dr. Schocket. I have been under his care for years and there is truly not any other doctor that I feel this way about. He is always willing to listen and take care of you. Put your trust in him as I have. You will not be let down.
