Verified Patient Reviews
I was super nervous about the testing, but it went well. Everyone in the office was super nice and made me feel at ease. Dr. Schkade taught me so much about my allergies. He is amazing.
The front desk woman was extremely rude and said nothing I did online with zocdoc fed to their system. The doctor was good, if I go back to him I will go to a different location.
Very knowledgeable doctor and explained things in a manner that I could understand.
Highly recommend Dr. Schkade. Entire team was very friendly and helpful.
I will have more to accommodate this question after my 30 day's of treatment. Over all my visit was awesome thank you.
Nice office and friendly staff!! The doctor was knowledgable and friendly too!!
Wonderful. Such a great experience! Dr. Schkade was amazing. He made me feel as if he really wanted to help my life of allergies! Did not expect to feel so good about this visit, but I do. The whole office staff was very welcoming and polite. I cannot say enough good things about the team at the office of Dr. Paul Schkade ! Thank you so very much. I finally feel like my allergies will not control my life decisions I make on a daily basis.
Dr. Schkade was really great. He was friendly and upbeat. He was clearly very intelligent and a really good listener. I, in particular, liked that he was very careful in what he said when discussing my concerns. He made a point of not wanting to make me feel like my concerns were silly or insignificant. Now, his staff is another story. I did not get the best feeling when I walked in because they just weren't very nice. The receptionist and the first nurse I saw, in my opinion, were not very friendly -I just don't like that when going to a doctor's office. Not that I was particularly nervous, but I think going to the doctor is not always very pleasant and a friendly staff makes me feel way more comfortable.
Beside manner was rushed, I felt my responses to being asked what my concerns were, or what brought me there to be seen were cut off alot, making me feel as if I had to rush through my explanations. I understand allergy testing can not be done on a person with dermatographia because of the hive response to the needle prickings. My question is to why blood testing wasnt offered instead. I failed to ask this at the time of appointment as it slipped my mind then. Also, Schkade mentioned "God" quite a bit, which turned me off. One of the comments as he walked me to the exit was "pray to God that he takes this (dermagraphia)away from you". This may go over well with those who are religious, I found it inappropriate being that Im not. Keeping professionalism in mind, I feel that doctors should keep religion out of their practice, because they can never know who is religious and who is not, or what religion clients align themselves with.
Dr. Schkade made me feel like I was the only patient he had to see all day. I had plenty of time to ask every last little question, he listened to everything I said/asked in its entirety, and he answered/responded fully. During my allergen test, he and the nurses explained fully everything they were going to do, what I could expect and what the results meant. They gave me treatment options without pushing any decisions on me. All around, I had a very pleasant and informative visit.
Just love them I call him Dr fix it.
Addressed all of my concerns and did thorough testing. Wait time was minimal and nurses were competent and friendly.
It was a good experience and he was kind and professional.
I feel like I can work with my asthma/allergies with the Doctor's help and medications that he has prescribed.
Dr.Schkade patiently listened to all my health concerns. I'm highly satisfied with the visit.
