Every time I see Dr. Schreck, it's always a very personalized experience. He's very kind, courteous, attentive, articulate and professional. He's also a warm guy with a great sense of humor. I can't imagine all of his patients don't share the same experience.

I spoke with Dr. Schreck by telephone who was on call the night in question. He gave me excellent advice which I followed up with an appointment that very morning. Actually, I did not see Dr. Schreck during my visit. I was visited by the doctor's assistant instead who seemed very knowledgeable and able to answer my questions.

Dr Douglas Schrek [...] saved my life after I experienced an acute myocardial infarction by expertly inserting two stents into my coronary artery. I further attribute my still being amongst the living to Dr Schreks excellent follow up care over the more than nine years since the surgery. I am most impressed with my experience with those I have been in contact with Providence. Thank you one and all.

Dr. Schreck has always been kind and understanding. Really like him. Funny thing is two of my friends at church also go to Dr. Schreck and they like him, too. When we have an appointment with him, we always say to each other, "I'm going to see our doctor this week!"

I phoned my provider on Friday stating that my blood pressure was quite low and was experiencing dizziness, etc. Was told he was on vacation but clerk said she would send him a message - my question with a "group" there wasn't anyone on call???? I did not hear from my doctor until Monday after the episode corrected itself, there was no way he knew this. Very upset about the entire episode.

This was a referral from my primary Dr. I absolutely love Dr. Schreck. He was very patient and reassuring. He put my mind at ease. My blood pressure had dropped very low and I have high blood pressure. Scared me to death. Looks as though I was dehydrated. He explained the importance of drinking water and what to do if it happened again.

Body weight, bad experience-standing on the scale with all my clothes on gives inaccurate information. Tried to tell the nurse I weighed myself each morning and could give her the exact weight. She insisted on weighing me, so I removed everything from my pockets, my shoes, and my belt. It was like the TSA at the Airport The weight was still wrong. I don't know why we are arguing about this within minutes of taking my blood pressure, which may then be elevated. I love Dr Schreck, but I'm not going through the TSA experience again unless Dr Schreck personally asks me to.
