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.

The receptionist was very personable and helpful and after i was done filling out paper work I was in the exam room within 2 minutes. The nurse was easy going and nice and I saw the doctor within 5 minutes of being in the room. He explained things very well and answered any questions I could have had.

Great dermatologist! However the front office should be trained better on referrals and what patients need before making an appointment. The referral process they are confused about. I had an appt and it was cancelled a couple days before due to no referral even though I asked if anything needed to be done. Then they were confused who needed to make the referral. Come to find out [...] did not cover what I needed done. I'm not sure why I was not told this to begin with as I told them what I needed. Again, the front office should be trained better. I had to call [...] twice and my doctor a few times. I spent lots of time just trying to make an appt. I finally got approval from [...] and the doctor that I could just pay cash for my needed service. Despite the ordeal, [...] in billing at Dr. Scheker's office was super helpful, knowledgable, and compassionate.

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

In my opinion, Dr. Luis Scheker.MD is exceptional, extremely professional, sensitive to me, my issues, is an exceptional listener and communicator. I greatly appreciate Dr. Scheker because he explains the details, giving me the option to decide and "WE" the have and will make the decisions together about the future of my health. Dr. Scheker has a great smile, always greats me by my name in his "starched white Dre's coat" I like his demenour. Old school or not.....I, DO NOT like Dr's dressed in Dockers and a T shirt, I do not like medical staff smelling like they just last their recent "smoke-break" I will refuse attention from that person! Dr. Scheker is the Dr. I respect and know he will take care of me. In my opinion, Dr. Schecker's attention to his appearance is the respect he shows to his profession and to me......one of his best advocates and patients!

On the visit this survey is asking about, I had outpatient surgery with Dr. Shecker. It took about 30 minutes and I had incisions, removal of tissue, and stitches. Dr. Shecker was kind and reassuring and did everything he could to make this a good experience. I also want to acknowledge his nurse, [...], who took many pre-op phone calls from me and also assisted Dr. Shecker during the surgery. [...] was very attentive to all my questions and I made the decision to have this procedure because she hung in there with me until all my concerns were addressed. On the day of the surgery, [...] was warm and kind to both my husband and me. I am grateful to both Dr. Shecker and to [...]!
