Since 1995, Dr. Schecker has treated thousands of the Grand Strand community’s residents and visitors for allergies, asthma and a broad spectrum of symptoms and medical conditions within the following categories.

Did you know?


  • Allergies are the 5th leading chronic illness amongst adults in America and the 3rd leading chronic illness amongst children.
  • Nationally, up to 50% of the population has allergies.
  • Nearly 8% of the population has asthma with a growing number of children being diagnosed with the condition.
  • One-third of the population has non-allergic rhinitis.
  • Allergy shots, also known as allergen immunotherapy or allergy vaccines, are FDA approved and do not contain steroids. They are the only treatment for allergy that treats the underlying cause of allergy rather than just controls the symptoms. 


Allergy shots:


  • Reduce the likelihood of developing new allergies even after they are discontinued.
  • Reduce the likelihood of children with allergic rhinitis (nasal allergy) developing asthma.
  • When successful, produce beneficial effects that can last for many years even after they are discontinued.


An allergist will treat all types of respiratory illness including colds,

upper respiratory infections, etc. - not just asthma.
