I have a lot of anxiety especially when it comes to doctors. Dr S. is the first doctor I have ever trusted, because of the above questions and more. He is the best doctor I have ever had.

SHC Patient, Mar 2020

It was such a pleasant first visit, Dr. was extremely knowledgeable, personable, passionate and caring. He covered all areas as needed, answered my questions and I feel he understands my concerns. He also advised me on what and why some of the tests were needed and some aren't. I think I just found myself a great doctor and I am going to recommend him to my family.

Dr Andrew S. is very pleasant and makes you feel comfortable. He asks lots of questions and you never feel rushed.

I left feel better knowing that he has provided every possible conclusions to diagnose my condition.

SHC Patient, Oct 2016

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.
