Dr.Schalow did what others said was impossible. I went from not being able to feel my hand and straighten three of my fingers. It has been 13 months now. But I can straighten all of my fingers and have full feeling without any pain. She is very kind and knowledgeable. She is honest and straight forward. Her staff is remarkable as well. I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing her services.

Thank you

Dr. Schalow is so kind, compassionate, and thorough, and I am so appreciative. She validated my pain, even though it wasn't present at the time of my appointment; showed me on x-rays why I had pain. Took time to answer my questions. THE BEST!!! And the same can be said for each staff member with whom I interacted.

Awesome!

I could not have asked for better treatment from Dr. Schalow or her staff. She is obviously a very busy doctor, but didn't rush in & out like many do. She is complemented by a wonderful staff as well. Because of my experience, my sister already has an appointment with her. Dr. Schalow is a class act!
