They know how to act quickly, assess the patient’s condition, and decide on a course of action. They work fast to coordinate with other physicians and specialists in the hospital if needed, such as neurosurgeons and radiologists, so they can properly diagnose the injury and stabilize patients.
    Common trauma injuries include bleeding, burns, brain or other internal injuries, shock and loss of limbs.

Do not give this awful, awful man your business.

Dr. Schenk is honestly the most vitriolic, unpleasant, rude, impatient human being I've ever had the misfortune of doing business with. Treats people like garbage. Disgusting.

I wouldn't be walking today if it weren't for the excellent care I received from Dr. Schenk after an automobile accident where my left leg was broken in 3 places. Also had head and shoulder injuries. He and his staff were the best. I can make a comparison to other orthopedic Dr.'s as my husband previously had gone to one, and the treatment was not comparable to the wonderful Dr. Schenk.
