David Schechter, M.D. Offering Family Medicine
Family Medicine is a specialty that focuses on the individual in a psychosocial context. Dr. Schechter sees this as meaning that he treats you, not just your heart, joints, and lab tests. He tries to consider a person’s health issues in the context of their whole life, their family, their work and the emotional stresses that go along with living.
Dr. Schechter believes a good primary care doctor is a coach and captain of your health care team. When needed, he can call upon sub-Specialists in a variety of fields to help maximize the results.
His training and Board Certification began in Family Medicine and he has been re-certified three times since then. He has focused on retaining the knowledge, skill base, and perspective of a Family Physician, which allows him to perform preventative, annual, and pre-operative physicals, admit you to the hospital when needed, and do a biopsy of a growth or incising an abscess.
