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.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

A provider’s star rating is based on a Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. In this survey, taken after an office visit, patients answer a series of standardized questions and have the opportunity to provide custom comments. Providence strips identifying information from comments so they can be shared without jeopardizing confidentiality or patient privacy.

Dr. Scheker is an expert dermatologist in whom I have great confidence. He speaks with knowledge and authority, but in terms that are easy for a non-doctor to understand.

My one concern was that when I called for an appointment, explaining my medical need to the receptionist, the only appointment was a month away for the date that I called. I asked to be put on a cancellation list & when I called back due to my concern, I was informed that there were no openings. I received a call from my Oncologist Assistant and she had to call to get me an appointment which was one week short of the full month. I felt that my need to see the Doctor was not important to her and she had no interest in trying to fit me in after I explained to her my needs and I was to wait the full month. I am surprised that there is not extra time for an appointment nor a way the my PCP could not have helped
