I had a great doctor's visit as a new patient with Dr. Schechtman. He was very easy going, informative, nice and patient.
All good
Great doctor and student today
As always, Dr. Schechtman is fantastic. It’s why I travel from San Leandro to San Jose to see him for in office visits.
I've been seeing Dr. Schechtman for a long time now. There are so many reasons for this longstanding relationship, but the most important one is his compassion for his patients. We are not just one of many clients he sees in a day. When I visit with him, I get his undivided attention and feel that he is really listening to what I am saying about my health and concerns. He genuinely cares about my problems and really seeks to identify solutions that makes sense. I appreciate his candor and willingness to help. I also appreciate his responsiveness and follow-through. I manage my elderly mother's healthcare and the treatment I receive from Dr. Schechtman and this office can only be likened to the difference between night and day. In terms of quality of care, communication and follow-up - there is no comparison. Thank you for all that you do to ensure my well-being and health. I am so grateful for your continued partnership in this journey called life! Keep up the amazing work :)
Very smart and informative
Dr. Schechtman is the best! I recommend him to anyone asking about finding a new doctor. I live in San Leandro but I drive to San Jose to see him because he’s that good. He doesn’t lecture or treat me like a child. He spends as much time as necessary with me and always asks if I have any questions before ending the visit.

Dr. Schechtman continues to deliver the type of service that every patient yearns to receive. He listens, and he actually hears what is being said.

Dr. Schechtman is top notch.
Dr. Schechtman has always been top notch, I missedhim dearly while he was on sabbatical.
Dr Schectman has been gone for a year but was completely up to date with my condition and also immediately noticed I was in more pain - physically and emotionally-than usual. He took the time to talk with me, make suggestions, and discuss all my current medications.I feel like he actually cares! I know he does. While he was gone Dr Chern took excellent care of me.
like I said before, Dr Schechtman is one of the best doctors I've ever had.

Dr S is kind and I feel that he listens and cares about all of my concerns. I have never trusted a doctor before him
doctor is very thorough
Dr Andrew S. is very pleasant and makes you feel comfortable. He asks lots of questions and you never feel rushed. I spent 45 minutes with him in the exam room because of his inquisitiveness concerning my health issues. I left feel better knowing that he has provided every possible conclusions to diagnose my condition.
I've been with DrSchectman for nearly 14 years. I now live out of the area, but work all over the state still. I go out of my way to maintain my health through this clinic. once I retire, I guess I'll have to change. I'm hoping it will be close to the clinic, but doubt it.
I always feel better about myself after a Dr visit at Family Medicine's office. from the care I am given, I am inspired to take better care of myself.
he is a great doctor
My family likes our care provider so when he changed srom SCCIPA we followed him and gave up all of our specialists.
Perhaps I gave too many high scores but they are justified!
Kudos to Dr. Schechtman.
Dr Schechtman was very thorough and asked many questions relating to my concerns. I did not feel rushed at all. I waited several weeks to make an appointment with him instead of another doctor in the clinic because I feel very comfortable with him.
Dr. Andrew Schechtman is great!
Dr. Schechtman spends ample time asking questions. He probes into health history, but also asks appropriate lifestyle questions. He's been my physician for many years. We have a good rapport and I value and trust him.
great doctor
I hope Dr Shectman can be the provider fort my children when we are back living in the area. Ive recommended him to numerous friends and family.I was referred to him 14 years ago, and I'm still here as explained in previous answers!I trust his care and appreciate his level of care and professionalism.I can give nothing but a 5 star rating in all aspects.
