Editorial review from Citysearch 8/14/2013

Brilliant doctor. He was down to earth and practical. I had been having anxiety at work. It was really absurd because I had just received great reviews, but I got very anxious everyday when I woke.\r \r He explained my anxiety to me, and showed me actual ways to feel better using Cognitive Therapy. He didn’t just sit there and say nothing. He seemed to care and was really helpful. I recommend him very highly. more

Extremely Helpful 3/12/2013

I was referred to Dr. Schachter by our Couples’ Therapist. My wife and I had been working out some issues when it was somehow determined that I had an anger problem. I didn’t think that I was unusual, but I went to see him in order not to make any waves. \r He was extraordinarily helpful. At first, he asked me a lot of questions He figured out what was going on rather quickly. And what he said was dead on correct. \r My wife and I have a very good, close relationship. We have squabbles like all couples. What he showed me that I really appreciated was that we had a system and when I would get frustrated, it was a normal response to a frustrating situation within that system. I had a volume knob, however, and I could adjust it to whatever volume would be most effective. Well, my wife does not like anger, so most effective was at a low volume. Once I got that, things changed remarkably.\r He was clear, insightful, and extremely helpful. more

A Truly Exceptional Doctor 12/4/2012

Because of my anxiety I have seen a lot of therapists. Before Dr. Schachter, not one of them really helped. They would sit there and not say anything back to me. I wanted to know what to do about my problem, and they would say nothing. The anxiety also doesn?t make sense to me. I am very successful in a very competitive field, but I have always been nervous with new people or if I have to make a speech. I make quite a few of these, but each time, I am sick before it.\r \r I liked Dr. Schachter because he spoke English. He didn?t use any psychobabble, and after asking me what seemed like a million questions, he figured out what was going on and he explained it to me simply. He was smart. He understood what I was saying before I was finished saying it, and that was very refreshing compared to the others who would not have a clue what I was talking about.\r \r I had a form of social anxiety, and it was relatively easy to fix. He then explained his therapy to me. He uses Co more

Great Doctor 11/6/2012

I was having a problem at work. My boss had been promoted and was under tremendous pressure. He took it out on a number of us. I started having trouble sleeping. I couldn't get everything done at work that he was demanding, and I started to feel that I couldn't ever catch my breath.\r \r Dr. Schachter was really great. He listened to the problem and then asked me a lot of questions. At the end of the hour, he explained that I was having a stress reaction and the symptoms were all normal. He spoke in a way that made a lot of sense. He then went on to teach me a series of what he called "problem solving protocols" to help me look at the work problems from different angles. He then showed me how to strategically handle my boss.\r \r It worked great. Very practical and very effective more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/19/2012

I am very happy I found Dr. Schachter. I was always shy and recently had been having trouble meeting peopIe, so I decided to get some help. I am in the financial services business and have seen a couple of psychologists in the past who were not helpful, so I searched online. He had good reviews, and I tried him. Dr. Schachter was better than the reviews. He had an uncanny knack of seeing the whole picture. He really got me. He understood how I thought. He was active and taught me actual skills that I could use to handle things differently. He was extremely helpful. His fees were not low, but it was definitely a good investment. more

The Best Doctor 3/29/2012

I just can?t thank this man enough. He has been wonderful. He is accessible if I need him. He has made a great difference in my life. I have been depressed since I was a teenager, and have gone to many doctors. He and my psychopharmacologist have really saved me. Dr. Schachter has a way of putting the facts together that make sense and even when I feel bad, he can help me feel better. He has been great. more

AMAZING. Really Glad I Found Him 1/16/2012

I don?t know how he did it, but my wife and I were at the brink, and now we are totally cool again. We have been married for five years and have two amazing kids, but things had gotten to a bad state. I found Dr. S. online. I read the reviews and I thought I?ll give him a try because a lot of different kinds of people seemed to connect to him and said he helped them. I am very glad I called. We had been getting into incredible fights because my wife had different ideas about what we needed to do. I have a high powered job in advertising and I have to travel a lot. She was upset that I was never home and never helping out. The thing I liked most about Dr. S. was that he got us in about one hour. He was not like any other shrink I ever went to. He saw the whole picture, and he explained it in a way that both of us understood. He said that when you are stuck looking at something one way, you can?t see the other ways of seeing it. We saw him for a couple of months. He was creative, insightful, intelligent. He was amazing. My wife and I started talking instead of fighting and we are in love again. I am very grateful. more

One of the Most Practical Doctors I ever met 12/5/2011

Dr Schachter is one of the most practical and wonderful doctors I have ever met. I have suffered from depression for quite a while. I had seen some other shrinks who were not helpful. Most of the time, they would say nothing during the session except more

Finding Dr. S. was a lucky accident- He was great 11/2/2011

?I found Dr. Schachter by accident. It was a lucky accident. I had been feeling like I needed to sort out some things in my life, but I had been in therapy before and I did not want one of those well meaning, but useless people who wouldn more

He really made a difference in my life 10/18/2011

?My life was at the best it had been and yet it felt like the worst it had been. I get paid a lot for what I do, but I hated it. Everyday I would go into an impossible work situation where everyone expected me to solve all the problems and there are so many that I freeze. I was also getting married, and wife is the most incredible person I ever met. Planning the wedding, though, was another thing that I had to do. I couldn more

Great !!! 5/28/2011

?I started seeing Dr. Schachter because I had a panic attack. I have manufacturing company and was introducing a new line. The week before our launch, I had the worst anxiety I ever had in my life. It didn?t make sense, This wasn?t exactly the first time I had a new product, but I was walking down the street, and a wave of panic came over me. I wasn?t thinking of anything, and suddenly I couldn?t breath. I had pains in my chest and my head. Things were spinning, and I ended up in the Emergency Room. After hours of tests, I was told that I had a panic attack, was given a tranquilizer and sent home. My internist recommended Dr. Schachter. He taught me ways to identify the thoughts that underlaid my anxieties and how to see if they were realistic. A lot of the time, they were not realistic at all, and he taught me how to change them and bring the anxiety under control. He also showed me stress reduction techniques that were helpful. The way he was most helpful, however, has been with my business. At my level, I don?t have a lot of people to talk with about many situations. I have a lot of smart people working for me, and they expect me to have the answers, not to tell them of my questions and my doubts. I had learned to handle my anxiety better and one day I was speaking about a problem that had come up with one of my senior employees. Dr. Schachter had an objective way of seeing my organization as a system and was able to show me how to handle the situation very effectively. Now I use him as a consultant on a weekly basis and I believe he has helped my business a great deal. more

Dr. Schachter is a Magician 5/28/2011

?Dr. Schachter is a magician. I had been in a terrible relationship that had gotten worse and finallyended. I felt terrible and my doctor had given me an anti-depressant and sent me to Dr. Schachter. He said the medicine was a start but I needed to find a different way of handling things. One big problem was that I kept obsessing about the guy even though we had not been happy for a long time. I couldn?t concentrate at work. I was not sleeping or eating. I didn?t enjoy doing anything. All I could do was think about him and what he was doing and whom he was with. It was very bad. Dr. Schachter taught me a different way to think about things. He used cognitive therapy to look at the thoughts I was making myself crazy with and to get a hold of them. Instead of thinking about what a great time he was having, I started thinking about the awful time he and I had been having. Instead of thinking that I wouldn?t meet anyone, I started looking for the kind of person I would want to be with. Long story short, I decided to stop wasting my time worrying about that guy and started looking for someone I would want to be with. We are getting married next month and I am happier than I have ever been. more

Amazing Problem Solver 5/27/2011

?Therapy with Dr. Schachter is like taking a course in life. He is not just a shrink. He?s a problem solver. I liked the way that he made sense out of everything for me. He connected the dots. I often get intolerant of people who can?t keep up with me. I am a perfectionist and I have always demanded the same from people. The problem is that thy don?t always like that, and I have ended up isolated and alone a lot of the time. He taught me a way to change some of the behaviors I used automatically and spot the thoughts under my feelings, and then to express the a different way. He helped me identify the negative patterns of behavior that I use out of habit and how to use an alternative one when I spot it. It was pretty easy to change those behaviors that were there for years. I am impressed. more

Brilliant 12/7/2010

I don't want to exaggerate, but Dr. Schachter turned my life around. I was in a relationship that ended, and I couldn't see any daylight. I was depressed and miserable. Dr. Schachter taught me how to look at things differently, and helped me find myself again. more
