I had 2 appointments with Dr. Schenk.Two things on the positive side: he ordered good lab work; it was very informative & the front desk ladies are very nice.He completely dismissed another rheumatologists diagnosis who moved out from the area (even though looking back, that was closer to reality). At the beginning he announced that his patients ARE TO take medication. That was before he sent me to lab.I specifically asked him about the 2 symptoms that were the most bothersome for me Will the medication heal or help those? He replied with 0 empathy that Probably not.. Why would I take the pills then? To make things worse with the serious side effects without getting any benefits? Dr. Schenk replied that patients shouldnt read all that literature about the side effects, because it only confuses them & they shouldnt obsess about their lab results either, basically just stay in the dark & take the pills & lets hope that they dont do more damage than good.Another memorable moment was when he ridiculed me for taking turmeric against inflammation, claiming that it was totally worthless, just like all others. Rheumatology indeed deals with some incurable, not yet fully understood conditions, I realize that, but there are better ways to treat the patients than this robotic approach.
He is very patience and makes sure you understand everything. I Highly recommend Dr Schenk.
Dr. Shenk listens. He is thorough. I am dealing with arthritis and I have complete confidence in Dr. Shenk.

Great experience. Nice and genuine office staff. Dr. Schenk took his time with me. A rare experience these days at a doctors office. Very thorough.
Front office staff very professional and very friendly. Blanca was so kind and empathetic. Dr. Schenk is very knowledgeable.
I have been with Dr Schenk for several years now, and have been very satisfied with the quality of care and attention I have received from him. It has been the best decision I have ever made for the treatment of my arthritis. The helpful office staff are wonderful, caring ladies who always make me feel very welcome. (especially on my monthly infusion days!)

I have been seeing Dr. Schenk for about 15 years for treatment of my ankylosing spondylitis. Dr Schenk and his staff are all very knowledgeable, kind, and helpful. I recommend Dr. Schenk without reservations. I feel he has done an excellent job treating my AS!
Dr. Schenk and his staff are AMAZING! Great office, caring staff, a dedicated doctor and this office offers Occupational Therapy, Infusion and Concierge Medicine.
Dr Schenk and his staff all are very nice, and take good care of the patient. Recently Lisa among his staff is the one to give my IV injection. Before the injection she warmed my vein on my arm so that I do not feel pain, and I am very grateful for her care.
I took my 91 yr. old mother to see Dr. Shrenk, she was in need of immediate care.Dr, Shrenk was totally inconsiderate of her age and dementia condition. I could have overlooked his poor bedside manner if he was a great Dr. However is medical skills were no better than his manners. I am somewhat familiar with the medical community and would l never recommend the services of Dr. Shrenk.
I needed a Reclast shot for my osteoporosis treatment. I sent detailed doctors files prior to the appointment. They did not review the files before. I was asked random questions and was given what seemed like a general check up, then asked to get more labs done. All they wanted to do was schedule another appointment and I still wouldnt know if I was approved for the shot. It felt like the doctor took advantage of me, was not efficient, effective or respectful of my time.
I’ve been seeing Dr Schenk for several years. Always kind and reviews my test results but the last 2 times i saw Nancy. The only thing she kept harping on me was to lose weight. I’ve stopped going there and will see my regular doc for my blood work
Several visits, no treatment but always a BIG push for the NEXT appointment. No consideration of the patients time long waits every visit; and when he would finally show, he had not even spent a minute to review his notes. So the consult would be him reading the notes, you repeating everything from the last visit, and him putting it back into his computer as the new notes. Seemed like he was just trying to milk the insurance co. so just stopped going. His staff kept calling.
I was unable to find many (any) Rheumatologists in South Orange County since my condition is not chronic and require special intervention. Dr. Schenks office willingly accepted me and scheduled a prompt appointment. Staff are excellent and promptly respond to calls. Dr. Schenks demeanor and explanations are above average. High recommendation!
Did not listen and had to wait over an hour each office visit.
