Dr. Schenk is very knowledgeable and helped me by performing steroid injections in my knee as opposed to going straight to the surgical option. It lasted for a good amount of time until I tweeked it again. I will be making another appt. in the coming week to take the next step in treating my knee pain. I am fully confident in his abilities.

This is one excellent Dr. Very personable, he and his staff. When you’re in pain and the Dr can make you smile, even laugh, that goes a long way toward healing. When a doctor is cold and clinical, as many are, that makes it worse for the patient.

I can't think of anything negative to say about Dr. Schenk. I've seen him several times over the years and would recommend him to anyone. In fact, I have and their feedback was the same. He's just an AMAZING physician!!!!

I feel and broke my shoulder Jan 2015. Dr Schenk fixed it with a plate and screws. He is a genius. and the best surgeon. I have recovered with almost 100% use of the shoulder again. He is very meticulous and takes very good care of his patients. I couldn't be happier with the work he did on me. Thank you Dr. Schenk. Now I am going to him for knee problems and I am confident he will do just as good on my knee.

Dr. Schenk is an excellent Physician. He takes his time and explains everything in a way that can be understood. He is very kind, and genuinely cares about his patients. I would not hesitate to recommend him to everyone. He is very warm, and unlike some other Drs, he actually listens to what his patients tell him..My grand-daughter and daughter had to drive me to his office as I could not drive after surgery and they were both very impressed. He has an awesome office staff.

I was referred to doc by a friend who had been treated by him.She had high praise for him. He was everything she described & more. I had a total shoulder replacement. He very skilled & it was pleasure to have him take care of a previously painful shoulder. His office staff were very pleasant & kind.

Dr. Schenk and his staff are fantastic. Be prepared for tons of smiles from his friendly assistant, rare in today's medical community. The Doc is thorough and never rushes, and he genuinely seems to care. He even provided me with some work arounds for my exercise-induced injury. I highly recommend him.

After a horrific auto accident I was moved to Dr. Schenk after numerous ortho surgeries, shoulder, both legs, and heel. Dr. Schenk did an outstanding job, informative discussions, excellent care and outstanding follow up on numerous occasions. I'm still under his care and will be for awhile but can't say enough about Dr. Schenk.
