I just want everyone to know how wonderful Dr. Schak and his staff are. I have been going to this office for years and Dr. Schak is the most compassionate Dr. I have ever met! It angers me to read the latest review someone posted. The sole purpose of posting a review is to comment about your experience with the physician. It is completely unfair to give a bad review if you have not actually had an encounter with the Dr. himself. Please take my advise and ignore the negativity.

The Good Doc

Dr. Schak and his staff, Julie and Don, provide excellent medical Care with the utmost courtesy and genuine Concern. Dr. Schak truly is involved with the patient and spends a great deal of time with the patient on each and every visit to insure a Full knowledge of the primary issue as well as any surrounding issues. He delivers service in the manner a friend would do so. He is far from the type of physician who treats his patients as cattle in a chute. Don and Julie deliver their services in the same manner. Super super doctor and terrific staff.
