Biography

Biography

Douglas Schreck, M.D., in a roundabout way, became a physician because of his college food choices. Deciding to eat healthier, he took nutrition classes, which inspired him to pursue a career in medicine. While completing his residency, he chose cardiology as his specialty.

With a strong interest in disease prevention, Dr. Schreck encourages his patients to eat healthy foods, lose weight and exercise. He enjoys engaging with patients and helping them maintain their health.

Dr. Schreck serves a leadership role for Providence to improve outcomes for congestive heart failure and acute myocardial infarction and he has worked to ensure core measures are being followed. He is both an interventional and noninvasive cardiologist with an interest in managing congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation and lipids.

Dr. Schreck enjoys running and playing tennis. His wife is a reproductive endocrinologist and he has three children.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

I phoned my provider on Friday stating that my blood pressure was quite low and was experiencing dizziness, etc. Was told he was on vacation but clerk said she would send him a message - my question with a "group" there wasn't anyone on call???? I did not hear from my doctor until Monday after the episode corrected itself, there was no way he knew this. Very upset about the entire episode.

This was a referral from my primary Dr. I absolutely love Dr. Schreck. He was very patient and reassuring. He put my mind at ease. My blood pressure had dropped very low and I have high blood pressure. Scared me to death. Looks as though I was dehydrated. He explained the importance of drinking water and what to do if it happened again.

Body weight, bad experience-standing on the scale with all my clothes on gives inaccurate information. Tried to tell the nurse I weighed myself each morning and could give her the exact weight. She insisted on weighing me, so I removed everything from my pockets, my shoes, and my belt. It was like the TSA at the Airport The weight was still wrong. I don't know why we are arguing about this within minutes of taking my blood pressure, which may then be elevated. I love Dr Schreck, but I'm not going through the TSA experience again unless Dr Schreck personally asks me to.

Dr. Schreck has been my cardiologist for the last two years or more. His evaluation of me was accurate, and he has been following me for this condition at regular six-month intervals with appropriate testing. I would be happy to recommend him any time.

I saw Dr. Schreck and his colleagues in the hospital on several occasions. This was the first time in his office. He consulted with my main doctor and called me personally to change a procedure to a pill. I then faxed him to confirm the instructions and he called me, personally, to explain what I needed to do. They are a wonderful group.

I have known Dr Schrek for over 20 years and he hs always been professional, personable, and very helpful. He always remembers things from our previous visits and has my best interests at heart. I have recommended and will continue to recommend this practice to anyone who needs cardiac care.l

I was a little startled when at first the doctor didn't remember that I was a patient of his, but he soon did remember, and quickly had all the pertinent facts regarding why I was there. My guess is he has many patients, and I hadn't seen him in a couple of years (maybe three), so I understand how that could have happened.

Upon check-in the receptionist noted that we have no appointment. Presented the paper with the appointment was made a year ago. She explained that was due to the conversion from [...] to Providence. I did not receive any communication - written or phone call. I insisted to be seen the same day till the doctor is available. This happened twice already. Dr Schreck is great but need to improve your back office. Thanks.

I consider myself extremely fortunate in finding Dr Shreck when I initially needed him. I do and will continue to rely on him to monitor my heart health. We seem to enjoy an intellectual rapport which is generally unusual between patient and doctor. He also displays a level of sincere concern regarding my following his directives and does not become indifferent when I show resistance.
