Dr. Schlenker was extremely empathetic and compassionate. He understood our sons difficult struggles he´s had an explained things thoroughly. My son said he was the best doctor he had seen.
Dr. Schlenker is ALWAYS warm, kind & practices @ a standard of excellence. I wish all practitioners showed. Regardless of whether the issue is minor to major.
