Biography & Education

Biography

Luis Scheker, M.D., follows a simple care philosophy: to provide each patient with the same level of care he would extend to his own family. “I feel privileged each day by the trust that patients place in me, and I work as hard as I can to meet and exceed their expectations,” he says.

In his practice, Dr. Scheker emphasizes communication between physician and patient. “I help patients to learn and understand the nature of their skin conditions so that together we can decide on the best treatment plan,” he says.

Dr. Scheker received his medical degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tenn. He completed his internship at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, Ind., and his residency in dermatology at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.

Dr. Scheker was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and speaks both Spanish and English. His hobbies include playing jazz piano and saxophone, watching movies and traveling.

Very knowledgable, patient, and with great bedside manner! He didn't make me feel silly about checking a mole even though I knew it was probably normal. He also diagnosed a problem I've had unresolved and misdiagnosed for 5 years, and with the new prescription it's already begun clearing up! The only regret I have is that I didn't get an appointment with him sooner...like years ago!!

I am so grateful to Dr. Scheker. I was suffering with a planter wart for last 1 years. My family physician did a horrible job and I got so frustated that I was determined to do a surgery in it. Then I visited Dr. Scheker . He advised me to not to do any surgery on it. He just give me a cream..Within one month I got cured. [...] Dr. Scheker did an excellent job. [...] I highly recommend him for dermatological conditions.

Making the appointment was a breeze and the person I spoke with sent me the materials to get things going. I only waited less than 5 minutes in the waiting room. The doctor and his nurse were awesome. Both were very helpful and I learned what could be the causes of the issues I was having. He did a biopsy and told me his office would get ahold of me in about a week, which they did. I had to go back to the office because I was having another issue. The doctor took care of me and helped me understand that what was happening was a good thing. I have had no other issues since and am healing just fine.

The office, staff and doctor were amazing, I was having a terrible skin issue and they fit me in after I had gone to urgent care and couldn't find a dermatologist office that could get me an appointment. Although my issue wasn't life threatening it was seriously affecting me physically and the compassion and care the doctor and staff showed were exceptional. The course of treatment I started also reversed my condition and I started to feel better from the very next day. I know it was a big deal to fit me in on a Friday afternoon but I can't tell you how grateful I am and what a huge difference it made for me as I was really miserable and my condition was worsening and would've continued to worsen over the weekend as the only appointment I found wasn't until Monday. So thank you so much again, I know it may not seem like a big deal but I want to let you know that I will be forever grateful to your office and staff for saving me from suffering a few days more than I would have had you not fit me in.

Dr. Shecker is patient, kind, friendly, and extremely efficient. He never makes me feel rushed but he is very good at staying on schedule. He has helped me with a number of small procedures and I have always had good results from what he does. When I had an abnormal biopsy, he did the surgery and I was not worried because he has such a reassuring manner and is so knowledgeable. It is rare to find a specialist who is so personable and warm!

It was a new patient visit, and I felt the provider was in a hurry. For never having seen me before and it took over two months to get an appointment, I felt the skin exam was fairly quick and didn't really address a couple small red spots on my face.
