Verified Patient Reviews
Saw the doctor due to toe issues related to Lyme disease. It took the time to read up on the disease and how it may related to my condition. He was very patient, thorough and answered all my questions.
I had a severely ingrown toenail. He removed the growth and I had no pain at all during the procedure. I will definitely go back to Dr Schecht.
